How would you say I better pass (I will better pass) in terms of declining someone's ridiculous offer?
Google Translate suggests "ich gehe besser vorbei", but it seems to me too straightforward. I don't believe Germans communicate that this way.
It is not just in terms of bidding, when two are rising the bets until one wants to quit.
I own a rare record priced $750. Someone offers me to sell it for $50 which seems both ridiculous and outrageous to me. I don't want to respond as "Sehr geehre/-r Frau/Herr, leider..."
Neither want I to ignore the message. What I want to say is: "haha, I'll better pass".
