Doesn't Hurt To Ask

I found a nice old desk at a used furniture place and thought it would look good in my office. The price tag read "$375 SALE: $325".

I went up to the counter to talk with the man. On the counter was an old sign, reading: "I find it, buy it, haul it, repair it, polish it, store it, dust it, insure it, and deliver it. How could I possibly take less for it?" The sign was marked "NOT FOR SALE".

Turboglacier: "Hi. I'm interested in that desk over there. It's marked $325. Would you take $300 for it?"

Guy: "Sure."

Desk is in my office now (thanks to 3.14 for helping me move it!)
