Real Estate Humor?

Real Estate Agent with President, Newtown Board of Realtors RES.0797458

You may have heard this one before.


A client bought a new home and the broker wanted to send flowers for the occasion.

They arrived at the home and the owner read the card: it said "Rest in Peace". The owner was angry and called the florist to complain.

After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist said, "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry you should imagine this: somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, "Congratulations on your new home."

David: Good laugh and welcomed at any time of the day. I am sure the family of the decease had a similar reaction. Thanks!
