On every platform and in every venue people will test and push. "it never hurts to ask" is what I always hear. On line and in store I get it ALL the time. It is the nature of selling used and vintage items. Some have a "thrift store" mentality and expect used to be cheap. It is what is is and all the complaining in the world wont change it. It will never go away. It goes with the territory. How you HANDLE it is what makes a difference. That is where YOU have the control. React or don't. Let it ruin your day, mess with you, or shake it off and move on to the serious buyer. AND I have to agree with @RevivalGypsy what someone does with an item once it belongs to them is their business. Dealers, Sellers, Flippers....we all shop here looking for deals to RESELL. I mostly, because I have certain buyers for certain items. I also know a bargain when I see one and will jump on it if I think I can make money on it. I, personally, have never asked for a better price. I know what I can make money on and pass on those that I can't.
