I hate negotiating. Mostly because I'm not very good at it, but also because I suck at it. Still, as I was negotiating the contract for our new flat I couldn't stop myself from thinking 'man this is awesome!'. It was just like the movies, too: I gave the agent my demands, then got a call back with the landlord's response. It's a fun game to play, especially when you get to say 'This is our final offer!'. No doubt the manliest moment of my life, though you quickly lose all that testosterone when the answer is no.
