Why are people in Canada so bad at bartering???

For the last year or so I have been slowing selling items on Kijiji. Particularly for larger items there seems to be a trend. What has been happening is that buyers have become persistent on making their first offer a hard price?! They have the gull to first reduce the price usually by a 1/3 or more then make it their final offer?? I usually follow up by offering to meet them half way with the price and the response 9/10 is "no" and there is no more communication. I actually don't mind on moving my price but how do you expect me to move on my price when you won't move on yours?!?! It is so ignorant!!! Drives me nuts!!! —online seller
