It's like trying to bargain with vendors at flea markets. Once they figure out that you really fancy a certain product of theirs, they'll be confident enough to give you a high price for it. You have already lost your bargaining power because somehow, they know that you won't leave the market without buying it.

Talk about "bargain"! The moral of the story: regardless of how much you may want something, it is always safe to reserve an inkling of hesitation, or at least show some of it to the vendors just so you could keep the ball on your side and use it to your advantage and not the other way around.

Tod, I can't reveal the domain name, but it was a nonsensical four letter .com name similar to sfrs[dot]com.
