Something just happenned to me this evening, which I thought was funny. I could easily tell a neighbor, but they'd laugh and understand. I suspect this crowd of realtors will likely laugh and understand.
I live and work in Washington DC, and this town eats people; people work to get here, but it's no vacation when you are here working. Whether you're a lawyer, a policitian, and somehow here because the government is here, then you are surely working at the top of your game. That energy attacts others with the same energy.
At the moment, I'm working with a buyer who's recently relocated to Washington, DC and has 2 months of corporate housing allocated so that he can find a new home as a result of the transfer to here. Saturday, I sent an email to him, to both his private and his corporate email (almost reflexively, so he has it regardless of where he is).
And now, the funny part.
His corporate email has an auto-responder telling me he is out of the office on Sept 17 & 18 (Saturday & Sunday). I can assure you, his building is not open on weekends, I expect the only people there would be the front security desk.
Evidently, he's been here 3 weeks and he's already become "one of us".
Funny to me, though I suspect the funny is lost to many others.
And yes, I'll have to share this with some neighbors this week.
