dollar auction

I tried to run a dollar auction at dinner yesterday. At first the kids (13-year-olds) wouldn't bite. Finally they started bidding. Then when it was going badly, one of them bid everything in her bank account. I had to quit since I couldn't take all that money away. She claimed victory. Then they wanted to do it again. They offered a penny, and then split the dollar.
