Do We Have A Failure To Communicate?

 

This is a hoot and was my Thursday morning wake up call as I awoke to a very irate so called REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL who blasted me with one of the most UN PROFESSIONAL yelling fests I have ever received from a colleague. 

 

She started out the conversation by screaching out with a "I was driving through your community yesterday and picked up a flier". "I had a client practically ready to buy this home site unseen" "But when I called you you indicated it was not fee simple but a rental park."  "Why don't you state that you're selling a Manufactured Home in a rental park?"

 

I politely suggested that she take a closer look at the flier and thanked her for helping me get my day off to such a cheerful start. What on Earth is happening in this World today.

 

 

Are people in such an anxious rush that they can't take a moment to stop and inhale? Thank goodness my lovely wife was as amused at this incident as I was. We both chuckled and got on with our day.

 

Wish you all a great day as well and don't let the little things get you down. As my dear ole Dad always used to say

 

"Just give it the light touch".

There's just no accounting for people's behavior, John. And you can't fix stupid.

Wow, there it is in big letters "Rental Park"....only thing to do is follow Nina's advice, which is really funny, but so true in this case!

Whatever happened to courtesy?  I often find the biggest complainers are those who do the most wrong. They try to turn tables and shoot the messenger rather than take responsibility. Glad the incident didn't ruin your day.

Hmm...............sounds like someone very familiar Lynnea Miller  . Think I'll coin your phrase "shoot the messenger rather than take responsibility". Love it!

Oh My!  I would have loved to get that wake up call.  I wouldn't have to even showered and shaved to make someone cry that day.  I love to get it out of my system early.  #floridatolbertteam

I'm always amazed when I receive a call from a sign that has a clear indication ''For Sale''( large red rider) asking if the property is a rental.

It proves that it's not always about "failure to communicate". Some times it's just plain IGNORANCE! Inna Ivchenko
