Too true. I recently had some animals for sale on another forum. I was putting prices of x each or y for the pair, open to reasonable offers. People were emailing me and asking what my best price was... WTH? you can't read? Make an offer, I'm not going haggle myself down. I was tempted to bup the price up in those emails but I figured it would go over their heads.
Speaking of franchises and retail I would get the odd person in trying to haggle. I would bump the price higher at that point and the haggler would be like "WTF you just said x now you say y!" to which I would tell them x was the you buy now no hassles price, y was the you want to haggle and waste my time price. It was effective.
