"I don't want to disturb you," said the Sage politely, "But before you go to bed tonight, could you look at that piece on eBay for me please? Not yet. Not this moment." "I'm not busy," I replied. "I'm only reading blogs."
The Sage brightened. "Well, if you're only reading blogs..."
Still two days to go. It's not time to bid yet.
Update So he said. But he put in 50p all the same. Taken out again at once. Hm, interesting...
So, what's the opponent's top bid? Will we find out tomorrow, or will we wait until the next day and slam him with our maximum with 10 seconds to go?
That's what I'd do. But I'm ruthless, me.
