Negotiating with a 6-1/2 Year Old

My phone rang yesterday, with my brother's name showing up as being the caller. After I said "Hello," I heard, "Hi, Auntie Peggy." It was my 6-1/2 year old nephew.

"Well, hi, Nathan. How are you?"

"Good. We are driving around and we saw a house with a sign in front that has your name on it."

negotiating price

"Yeah...I'm trying to sell that house. Do you want to buy it?"

"Sure! We could buy it." (I can hear my brother laughing in the background.) "How much is it?"

"One hundred fifty eight thousand dollars."

 "What?!? A hundred fifty eight thousand dollars!?"

"Yep."

"I don't have that much money." (Slight pause.) "Would you take five or ten dollars because that I can handle."

I wonder if my seller would consider this...

More than likely not, but Reader's Digest might consider the story, it's priceless.  I love how honest and pure kids can be.........

Peggy,  How adorable!  I'm sure your brother got a real kick outta the conversation.  They say your sign and thought of you and called!  That's great!

Roger -- I like the Reader's Digest idea! :)

Kathleen -- Yeah, I could hear my brother laughing. I will say the apple didn't fall far from the tree here -- my nephew is definitely his father's son.

That is priceless and adorable Peggy. I agree with Roger and Kathleen. Kids say the most wonderful things! How great it would be to be so uninhibited again!

John -- I thought the exact same thing. He just makes us laugh every single day.

This is hilarious and thankfully he did not put it in writing which would mandate you take it to the Seller.  So nice to get fun calls like this in our day. Thanks for the smile.
