Huh. Well That Was Officially The Weirdest Negotiation Ever.

So let's just say, hypothetically speaking - that you find a house that you'd like to buy, and that house costs X.  You then put in an offer of X-5 which is still a pretty good deal for the seller.  Then you wait and agonize all day.  Then, at the very last minute, the seller comes back with a counter offer of X+10.  You read that right, folks.  Their counter offer is higher than their listing price.  I don't know about you, but this officially smacks of stoopid to me.

There was a saying that the boys at my college used to whisper amongst themselves, and I think it applies nicely in this situation.  I believe it went something like this:

Don't stick it in the crazy.  Otherwise you'll live to regret it.

Yep.  I think that works for me.  Sigh.
