According to family folklore, my uncle flew home one holiday with a very, very expensive guitar and was told he had to check it. He refused, so the gate agent said his only other option was to buy it a seat. He did - unfortunately, the only seat that was left was First Class, so that was what he purchased….for the guitar. When asked why he didn’t put the guitar in Coach and take the First Class seat for himself, he explained, “because the First Class seat belonged to the guitar. I wasn’t going to take its seat.”

How fast is too fast to get an offer? I had two easy interviews (founders only) and got an offer $20k higher than asking in under 72 hours from first call. It's a very small 9yo company, very niche product, and I’m finding no behind-the-scenes information (doesn't even show up in Glassdoor.) Two other prospects are going very well, but still have 3+ rounds to go for each. Did I just hit the jackpot, or is this too good to be true? Would you take the offer, try vetting them further, or run?
