    Haggling

    Just a quick point.

    People need to learn to haggle.. I have been overexaggerating what i desire for some trades and people have been accepting them.

    I don't know about anyone else, but i was looking forward to haggling with people over prices, what is worth how much of what.

    Just me?

    Brian: How much? Quick!
    Harry: What?
    Brian: It's for the wife.
    Harry: Oh. Twenty shekels.
    Brian: Right.
    Harry: What?
    Brian: (putting down 20 shekels) There you are.
    Harry: Wait a moment.
    Brian: What?
    Harry: We're supposed to haggle.
    Brian: No, no, I've got to ...
    Harry: What do you mean, no?
    Brian: I haven't time, I've got to get ...
    Harry: Give it back then.
    Brian: No, no, I paid you.
    Harry: Burt!
    (Burt appears. He is very big.)
    Burt: Yeah?
    Harry: This bloke won't haggle.
    Burt: (looking around) Where are the guards?
    Brian: Oh, all right ... I mean do we have to ...
    Harry: Now I want twenty for that ...
    Brian: I gave you twenty.
    Harry: Now are you telling me that's not worth twenty shekels?
    Brian: No.
    Harry: Feel the quality, that's none of yer goat.
    Brian: Oh ... I'll give you nineteen then.
    Harry: No, no. Do it properly.
    Brian: What?
    Harry: Haggle properly. This isn't worth nineteen.
    Brian: You just said it was worth twenty.
    Harry: Burt!!
    Brian: I'll give you ten.
    Harry: That's more like it.
    (outraged) Ten!? Are you trying to insult me? Me? With a poor dying
    grandmother...Ten!?!
    Brian: Eleven.
    Harry: Now you're getting it. Eleven!?! Did I hear you right? Eleven? This
    cost me twelve. You want to ruin me?
    Brian: Seventeen.
    Harry: Seventeen!
    Brian: Eighteen?
    Harry: No, no, no. You go to fourteen now.
    Brian: Fourteen.
    Harry: Fourteen, are you joking?
    Brian: That's what you told me to say.
    (Harry registers total despair.)
    Tell me what to say. Please.
    Harry: Offer me fourteen.
    Brian: I'll give you fourteen.
    Harry: (to onlookers) He's offering me fourteen for this!
    Brian: Fifteen.
    Harry: Seventeen. My last word. I won't take a penny less, or strike me
    dead.
    Brian: Sixteen.
    Harry: Done. (He grasps Brian's hand and shakes it.) Nice to do business
    with you. Tell you what, I'll throw in this as well. (He gives
    Brian a gourd.)
    Brian: I don't want it, but thanks.
    Harry: Burt!
    Burt: (reappearing rapidly) Yes?
    Brian: All right! All right!! Thank you.
    Harry: Where's the sixteen then?
    Brian: I already gave you twenty.
    Harry: Oh yes ... that's four I owe you then. (starts looking for change)
    Brian: It's all right, it doesn't matter.
    Harry: Hang on.
    (Pause as Harry can't find change. Brian sees a pair of prowling Romans.)
    Brian: It's all right, that's four for the gourd -- that's fine!
    Harry: Four for the gourd. Four!!!! Look at it, that's worth ten if it's
    worth a shekel.
    Brian: You just gave it to me for nothing.
    Harry: Yes, but it's *worth* ten.
    Brian: All right, all right.
    Harry: No, no, no. It's not worth ten. You're supposed to argue. "What?
    Ten for that, you must be mad!"

    ^ This, no point in haggling when everythign is worthless hahaha

    If something has NO value, what's to haggle over?
