How To Lose Even Before The Auction

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

County foreclosure auctions in Volusia & Flagler Counties, where we are going, take place in the county courthouses.

And to get to the courthouse means going through the metal detectors, taking your shoes off, and some times getting your belt out.

Well, while the Sheriff deputies are sweating in search of terrorists and weirdoes, there is often a long line of people and it takes time to get through.

It was an interesting show today in the morning. A nice looking lady (in the eyes of beholder) was going through the metal detector. She put her handbag into the plastic basket and it went through a machine. She went through the metal detector, and she was fine. But then she was still there, and still there, and still there… and the deputies did not let her go through.

They found an I-Phone charger (!), hairspray, and a small knife, and it was all prohibited stuff… And it was just 3 minutes before the auction…

This lady was my wife…

Tammy - when I see at a group of law enforcement officers checking old ladies, I think that terrorists can count this as a win.

Your wife carries around a small knife? Any particular reason?

haha, did you claim her during this experience? or point and wonder who she was with? (the second is definitely NOT recommended for a future in the mariage business!)

Tanya - I have difficult time believing in this resulting in more safety. I do not believe that this is really a deterrent for the terrorists, or any trained professional.

But what  a pain in the neck

Jill - actually, yes. We had a group of hotel investors yesterday, and we had a metting at a meeting place, and Olga took a knife so that she could make small sadwiches.

Of course, she forgot to take it out

Mark - I was at the end of this line (I was parking the car and she went ahead), so I did not understand what was going on until she came back and gave me that stuff and asked to take it to the car, so I was late for the auction

Jill- she once was on a plane and in her carry on there was a flight instruction on how to operate Boeing, and notes on the book were in Arabic... and she did not know that until we noticed it when she was back home.

Good nobody saw it, or she would have spent some time explaining it to law enforcement

My goodness, your wife does carry some strange things in her pocketbook. I carry my phones, pen and paper, a mirror and lipstick...

Jill, It was not intentional. She was going to New York, and she borrowed a bag from her friend. Her friend's son-in-law was a chief mechanic of aircraft's at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University here in Daytona Beach, and also he was taking courses for his Master's.

He is from Iran, so he was making his notes on the manual in Farsi. Olga never checked the bag, and thought it was a fashion magazine there.

Lucky for her they have not seen it.
