Yesterday, Lucy and I were playing war. We had already gone a few rounds when I announced that I’d like to play more, and then quit. Lucy pushed back saying she wanted to play until one of us had all of the cards. I reminded her that war could go on a very long time, and so I wanted to stop after one round.
Lucy: 3 more rounds, then.
Mark: Ok, 2.
Lucy: No, 3.
Mark: Lucy, that’s not negotiating.
Lucy: Yes it is. You wanted to play 1 round. I wanted to play INFINITY rounds. So, 3 is a compromise.
Mark: I- umm… Dang. I really can’t argue with that.
We played 3.
