A tactic often used in negotiations by the person who believes that he or she holds all of the cards. The person is trying to express a dis-interest in the outcome of the negotiation, because he or she believes that the other party either has no choice in the matter, or is too busy / doesn' t have enough time to find a better deal. While on the surface this may appear like a viable negotiating tactic, the end result is alienation - thus reducing the probability of future business.

If given this choice, I nearly always Leave It. I can usually find someone willing to sell me the same goods or services for a better price / higher quality. And Leaving It enough times teaches the negotiator to find a better way to bargain. - Nodeshell Rescue Team
