I realized yesterday how my life is so different from most people. Real estate has been my life for nearly 5 years. My family and friends understand that real estate is a part of me. I take calls and work 7 days a week.
Yesterday I was in the nail salon and saw a call coming in from a client I really needed to talk to and who is hard to reach. I answer the phone and she goes on and on and on. I am told to leave and the other people in there were having a fit. I understand I was wrong to take the call and then to alk over 5 minutes. I was shocked at the reaction of the employees and staff in the salon. I had never had anything like this happen.
I thanked my nail tech and gave her the usual $20 tip and told her I understood, but since I could not guarantee this would never happen again as these situations are a part of my life, I would not be back. She followed me out crying. This is way too much drama over a manicure and pedicure.
It did really shake me up. I also realized how my life truly is so different from other people. I wondered how many of those clients would be upset if they had experienced my life or the frustration of my client.
I then stopped at the grocery store and was told by a checker how happy they were to see me and what a nice person I am. I told here she made my day and a brief description of what had happened at the nail salon. She told me that they loved me at the store and I could talk on the phone and they understood.
It is past now. Thank goodness there are many more nail salons.
