Dickering: a lost art? I recently bought a new(er) car, and put my old POS up for sale. Had someone come and look at it last night, we talked for a while about various things. When it came time to dicker over the price, it was offer, counteroffer, done. Maybe 90 seconds tops. Anytime that I have bought a used car privately, a similar thing happened. It makes me think that the art of dickering is dead (or that I really suck at it). I enjoy at least trying to dicker over the price of things. It gets received in different ways: some go with it, talk it over, others get annoyed, and the price is what it is. I remember multiple stories from when I was young about my father buying whatever, and dickering over the price almost every time. Do you ever try to dicker?
