Since Mr. Coe knew that Kim considered a walk a rigorous exercise, he knew a reasonable person could only imply he jokingly made an offer when he placed a bet for her to keep Kim in shape. Kim herself even knew that Mr. Coe must be kidding. An offer made in jest is based on a reasonable person stan- dard. The objective theory of contracts instructs the test for the validity of an offer based upon how a reasonable person would interpret the comments and not the subjective meanings or intent that each party has. Offer is the manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain to justify an- other person his assent is invited and will conclude the bargain.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
