The Debating Of Negotiating!

The cat wants to negotiate today. It seems to work at many a bay. So the cat wants to try it too. Hey, you never know what may come due.

You have that for sale?
Wow, it is such a fail.
I'll give you 10% of asking price.
Aren't I ever so nice?

I fell on your step?
I no longer have pep?
What? $50,000 now?
I'll take that with a happy meow.

I need some wheels.
Screw those fancy deals.
I'll give you $300 for it now.
I saved $2000, that is wow.

Look! I got cold hard cash.
That has to give you a happy rash.
How about we negotiate?
I win! Checkmate.

Can cash be cold?
Can hardness take hold?
Beats the heck out of me.
Let's negotiate that it can come to be.

Back to negotiating.
I want to go dating.
Err umm I never win there.
No negotiating to spare.

I want that job.
I will even rob.
Rob little old you.
Some negotiating came due.

I got it and a raise.
Wow, and some praise.
Isn't negotiating grand?
What? Don't shake my hand.

I'm aggravating?
That works in negotiating.
Then you just give up.
I win without a hiccup.

I'm done negotiating.
It takes some calculating.
That can be agitating.
Who needs all that estimating?

Yeah, the cat doesn't negotiate one bit. If Pat doesn't do what we want we don't have any of that shit. A weasel negotiator at your sea? I think the cat would feel rather dirty if that came to be. Some can sure do it with a straight face coming to pass. To them I just stick up my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. When I worked in retail, there was always the occasional clown who thought our store was a Turkish bazaar or something. Nope, we can't negotiate with you on that toaster. Sheesh!

  3. I've been trying to negotiate my well being,
    For the past two and a half years.
    Seems like the powers that can help,
    Only brings on many tears.

    It's different to negotiate for articles,
    It's easier that I can say.
    But when it comes to health and well being,
    I can't get my way.

  4. The Debating Of Negotiating!
    Often times involves haggling
    It ends up win-win
    Or one gets pinned
    Even some heart-breaking scenes

  6. Negotiating is the theme
    Try a touch of ole Jim Beam
    Makes the bargaining go fast
    Go shake hands and make it last

  11. The manager wanted to increase the rent. We've been here for 19 years and told her if it went up we'd move out. The rent stayed the same, no increase for us. lol

  17. When it comes to negotiating
    I don't do so well.
    For me it is frustrating
    Whether I buy or sell.
    I tend to see the short end
    Of the proverbial stick.
    I usually cave or bend--
    It kind of makes me sick.

    1. Don't bend and break
      Whether for car or rake
      That can leave you broken
      Without a highway token

  18. a little negotiation can be good

    asked for a discount, it was understood
    I went home happier at my shore...

    1. That isn't so bad

  19. Cats just do not come to the table, do they?
