If you’re searching for someone to sublease your apartment, online platforms are a great place to start. Unfortunately, it means you have to deal with a few bad apples, who expect to pay less because they assume you’re making a profit. With this kind of mental gymnastics, this guy could enter the Olympics.
Be wary of those who try to convince you that you should rent your apartment out for less than it’s worth, they would do better competing in a sport where they can display their extreme mental agility.
Give Me Free, Please?
In the new age of the Facebook marketplace and other sharing-economy companies, we have higher expectations when it comes to transacting with strangers online. Nowadays we can conveniently exchange goods and services from the comfort of our own homes, and hopefully, make a buck or two.
But in all honesty, the online marketplace can sometimes turn into a theater of debasement and terrible negotiations. Like this exchange, where the potential buyer expected the seller to send money for an Uber.
* Okay Buddy
Of all the modern messes found on the internet, few are as bewildering as the shambly shed full of greedy influencers. What makes these influencers so incredulous is not just their scale and reach. It’s also their unbelievable sense of entitlement.
The worst part of all of this is that this guy has over 1000 people following him on his channel, and they're probably completely unaware that he can be this rude and whiny.
* Because It's My Birthday
Negotiating prices can seem like a daring strategy, but it rarely hurts to try, right? If you want to be taken seriously, then you better negotiate a reasonable price on reasonable terms. Getting a 50% discount because it's your birthday would not count as reasonable.
At this point, there’s no turning back. The seller wasn't convinced it was their birthday and he certainly wasn't going them a massive discount of 50%.
Just For You
In some cases, negotiating can backfire and some people will be offended if you try to bargain down the current price. In this specific case, bargaining down to $300 when the current price is $899, is definitely a little offensive!
Here's a tip for those who feel the need to haggle for a bargain, don't overdo it, you'll only annoy the seller and ruin any chance you had at getting a discount.
