Haggling for Hot Dogs

Esquire: (And other real-life adventures in the neglected art of negotiation.) Everything is open to negotiation. Everything. For three months, the author treated the world that way. This is what ensued.

Halfway through this article I resolved to change how I do business, had a deja-vu moment, and realised I made the same resolution 2.5 years ago when I read it the first time. So I guess I found it on Digg this time then.

I do try to haggle, but I always screw up my starting and ending position, and I always feel like my opponent is laughing his or her ass off at me after I leave. Where’s Tony Robbins when you need him, eh?
