No, thanks. I think I’ll keep it.
Aww, c’mon! Why would you want to keep that dirty, broken-down old thing? Tell you what—just sell it to me cheap, and I’ll haul it away with me. You won’t ever have to bother with it again.
Thanks, but no. It’s got a lot of sentimental value for me. I won’t part with it.
Wait, wait! Come back here! What do you want for it? C’mon, gimme a break here! What do I have to do to get you to lemme have it?
You’re a shrewd bargainer, but you don’t have anything I want. This item is priceless to me.
Okay, okay, but wait just a minute. You got any more of these? Maybe in worse shape than this one? I don’t care how beat up it is. I’ll take whatever you got. Give a guy a break, will ya?
No. Please take your hands off it, and I think you should stay away from my property. I really don’t want to have any dealings with you.
