If they are key ECs, pay whatever he asks and thank him for the privilege! And do it NOW!!

 He does have a few ECs  I don’t think those would be a problem they’re priced fairly accurate.

Yeah, just get a fan of 50 $1,000 bills, and wave them seductively at your face, while feigning indifference. Make sure you drape your leg casually over the end of the dealer's table.

And wear a short skirt.

 Be respectful of a dealer's time and hard work and just ask politely. Be serious with your offer. Don't waste people's time with kicking the tires. (shrug)

I understand where you're coming from, tho. As someone with social anxiety interactions can be tough. Don't take a lot of xanax before a con and drool and pass out at a dealer's table while negotiating. You want to be taken seriously.

Phone video of me taken by my buddy. On the way to last year's Wondercon with my Want List and ready to negotiate:

Graded books only, but I discovered this the other day via Facebook ad. Search function is great! It gives a good overview of what books in all grades have and are currently selling for on Ebay and a few other auction venues. I like it and it's FREE.

I love going to Your table Bob. I'm not much of a negotiator , but your prices are usually spot on.

Whatever you're into, I suppose. Not my thing, but we don't judge.

You met a person who was willing to admit he didn't know something!  Very refreshing when you run across one of these rare individuals!

Too often it's the pedantic know it all that is just exhausting to deal with.  The guy everyone keeps moving away from at a party.

Sounds like somebody on the boards.  I can think of a few.

Me too. And often, it's the one decrying others who's the most guilty...there's more projecting going on than in a 24 theater megaplex with some.
