You Couldn't Wait Until You Got Home? Seriously?

I recently was at one of my listings dropping off some marketing materials and visiting with my seller...My very nice and kind seller.  We were talking about some showings we had and she said "Well one guy...Well, I shouldn't even tell you..."

Of course not only is my interest piqued at this point but there is also something there that as her agent, I am sure I need to know.  After much prodding, I got my very nice and kind seller to tell me how an agent who showed her home had...Well...Made his presence noticed?

 Evidently she had left the house so three agents could show the home.  When she returned their cards were on the table, and she walked in, presumably put her keys down, opened the bathroom door...and almost passed out.  Evidently someone had to go.  Had to go in such a hurry that they left water all over the sink and floor, and, of course, forgot to flush.

My client described the stank that pervaded her home with such vigor that I was almost persuaded to call some kind of abatement team.  I offered to call the agent, but she said that she could not truly identofy which one it was.  Evidently three agents showed the home around the same time.  Two women agents and one man who was previewing. 

Previewing the commode! 

I told her I did not mean to be sexist but I highly doubted it was either of the women agents.  It sounded more like a college dorm prank than an agent's indiscretion and only one of the three did not have clients.  Not to mention- that is something guys do. 

Or do-do.

So to "That Guy" I ask, really: You Couldn't Wait Until You Got Home?  Snohomish County Homes for Sale

I am continually amazed at some people's lack of professionalism.  Thankfully, in the market I am in, that is the exception.  Like my client said- "There was a can of air freshener right there!  He could have at least used that!"

"Well..." I said, "At least he washed his hands."

What can we say about this one? Lots of words and phrases come to mind but I will be nice. I have to agree with Peg though about washing his hands. THAT was funny!
