“I’ll give you $10 for it.”
“I can’t sell it for less than $30.”
“You drive a hard bargain. $25 is my final offer.”

Someone who is buying, selling, or negotiating an agreement usually wants to get the best deal possible. If you won’t give much ground in the negotiations, you drive a hard bargain.


何かを売ったり、買ったり、契約などの交渉をしている人は、自分にとって有利な結末を望んでいるはずです。なかなか譲らない場合は「drive a hard bargain」と言います。
