Whenever someone on Craigslist is holding a game for you until you get off work, and when you call at 5:05pm to go get it, they always say "I'm sorry, my wife said I can't sell it".

That means that someone else offered them more money above their asking price.

It's know as "Pulling the wife card".

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Sometimes you want to negotiate out what the price of something may be but you do need to get final approval from your significant other and perhaps he/she blows it up for whatever reason.

Really? Do people really have to get approval from their wives for hobby stuff?

Quoted from Wickerman2:

I bought a game, picked it up, brought it home, started working on it in the garage....guy calls says he got in trouble with wife because she had bought the game for him originally. I said fine--not a grail game for me anyway, just a project. He came and picked it up and paid me $100 more than I paid...and this was an hour drive 1 way.

I wonder how much more he was offered for the game over what you paid for it?

It would be fun to stop by unannounced with some token pinball gift just to see the game no longer in his possession.
