I've tried to think about it sensibly but its actually not that simple because if I actually was in this situation I think I might actually leave with NOTHING!
Sorry heres the situation…
You and an acquaintance, "Pat", are walking down the street when you meet an older couple with a bag of money. The older couple makes the following offer: We wish to give the two of you £100,000 if you can decide how it should be shared between the two of you in the next 3 minutes. You say, "So, Pat, what do you say? How about fifty thousand pounds each". To your dismay, Pat answers, "Gee, I'm really sorry, but my dog needs an expensive operation. So, I'll take eighty thousand pounds and you can have twenty thousand. I won't settle for anything less!"
What do you do? Insist on an even split and get nothing or take the £20,000 and be happy?
ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THAT?
