JayTuut Posted January 26, 2019 Share Posted January 26, 2019 Short definition: A person who offers insane or overpay amounts on items not for sale so the person is forced to give in/sell Example 1: An elderly woman has a home she has lived in for 50 years and does not want to move out of, she ignores all offers from real estate agents trying to make apartment blocks until they offer her an insane overpay amount (e.g. 3m as opposed to 1m) so she decides to give in and sell it to them Example 2: Aaron has a car he drives, it's a pretty uncommon car, but he likes it. It is not for sale as he has become attached to the car and doesn't really need to upgrade it as it works fine. This car is worth $10000 and he gets offered $8000, he declines, he then gets offered $10000 and still declines, so the Divitiam person decides he really wants the item especially since the person won't give it away easily and decides to offer $15000, so Aaron gives in and takes it Word in context: "Dude I sold my car today, I didn't really want to but he was such a Divitiam." Example 3 (TF2 Related): Bobby has an Australium scattergun in his inventory that he uses because he is a scout main and even has a red tag indicating it is "NFS" (Not for sale). Danny comes along and is looking for a specific Australium scatter with a spell, he sees through scrounging through premium that Bobby's scattergun has a spell on it so he decides to offer on the 33 key item. Danny first offers 33 keys, Bobby declines and indicates that it is NFS. Danny then decides to offer again, 40 keys. Bobby declines again. Danny gets annoyed as he both wants the scattergun and also has a sociopathic/power hungry tendency to want to take the item off him more as he knows its not for sale. Danny then offers 57 keys and Bobby is forced to give into his prized possession. Bobby didn't really want to sell it but Danny gave such a good offer that he was forced to give in. Origin: The word Divitam comes from the Latin word "divitiae" which means "Riches, Wealth" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
