When to resign

When to resign

I had this conversation with a grump opponent. He didn't like the fact that I played on after blundering a piece in a 5-min game. I was pretty surprised because almost nobody resigns to me after losing a piece and I sometimes justify their optimism and proceed to lose the game.

How often do you resign after losing a piece? You opponents?
