That's a good reminder of what just a little bit of impatience or frustration can do to anyone's judgment, even an expert's! I need to remember this (and I'm far from an expert).

Almost sank it Saturday!

Kill switches aren't usually needed. Until they are.

Just curious, how the heck does that work? If you say "Price range 20K-24K, negotiable"... why would anyone in their right mind offer you a penny more than 20K? It seems you've already tipped your...
