Somewhere along the line Elon Musk decided he didn’t want to spend his time haggling over price. Sure, there are people out there who live for that kind of stuff, who get a real thrill, treating the world like one big bazaar.
But that was never Elon’s style. Nor did he want it to be.
So he just made a new rule for himself: No haggling. Either people accept his terms or they go elsewhere. And Elon was happily willing and able to live with the consequences.
On one level, yes, it’s slightly arrogant, or even childish and naive. Not willing to haggle? Who does he think he is? The nerve!
Then again, maybe he’s doing people a favor. At least he’s not trying to waste anyone’s time…
