I made an Offer of $77.00, knowing full well that he wasn't going to Accept. I just wanted to make an Offer so that when it did sell, I would know how much it sold for.
But he Accepted my Offer.

He had to know that nobody would offer anywhere near that. I wasn't talking about listing something slightly above/below book value, I'm talking more silly stuff like mentioned above....it seems like such a waste of time to me.
