I was busy doing the mom/realtor thing the other day when I stopped to check one of my social media sites. To my horror, a couple who I had been helping search for homes on an informal basis had posted the following update: "We are excited to put our house up for sale as we have put a bid in on another!".
WHAM! Right between the eyes! I couldn't believe it. I was in denial. The last time I had talked with them they were going to stay put for a while, then possibly start looking again in the Fall. But this is Summer. Hello! Why was I left out of the picture?
Then my husband comes home after a day of trying to sell his company's products. He's not a happy camper because one of his accounts asked him to specifically write an order, then changed their mind after he left, letting somone else know that my husband had "written an incorrect order", so he's now behind the 8 ball with his sales numbers.
Why are people not loyal? Why do they say one thing and do another? Why can't we all be transparent and up-front? We could research this for the rest of our lives and never get a concrete answer. I don't operate that way. I'm for truth and no hidden agenda. Surely there is some small town in this vast country of ours where the residents are nice to each other.
Dream on Heather!
