SpeakerNarrator, Robert “Bob” Johnson, Michael Smith

 

Narrator: Bob is a local used-car dealer and he’s feeling pretty good at the moment. He’s about to close a great deal with another used-car dealer, Mike.  Mike has agreed to pay Bob more than he expected for a like-new car on his lot. The car’s on consignment from its owner, Al. Bob and Mike had talked about the deal over the phone and e-mail. During Mike’s visit to Bob’s dealership they settled on a final figure of $25,000.00. Once Bob received the payment, he would then write a check to Al for $22,000.00 and keep $3,000 as a consignment fee. All he had to do was say yes.

 

Mike: Sounds great. I can’t believe you’re letting this go for so little. I mean for $25,000 (pause) I feel like I’m stealing.  

 

Bob: Yeah, right?

 

 

Mike: Take care.

Narrator: Mike thought about it for a moment and came back with an unexpected response. 

 

Mike: I’m going to have to reject your counteroffer, Bob. (Pause) No, we HAD a deal but you just rejected my original offer. (Pause). Look, there’s nothing on the table from my side anymore. (Pause) I tell you what? I’ll give you $20,000.
