This is one of those great office stories....that could only happen to someone concentrating on expanding their business.
I have a young agent that is wise beyond his years. I will not mention the name to protect the guilty! He was out canvasing a neighborhood dropping off flyers...going door to door. The flyers are informative listing flyers about an open house. He is doing great and finding his methods paying off.
His objective is to hand out 200 of these flyers. So he does not talk much unless asked a question, then like any good Realtor he will bend your ear. He has had a few people tell him not to come on the property and they didn't want to hear any political or religious stuff...just go away.
He has taken these issues in stride...speaking of stride he has now walked up driveway after driveway in this subdivision. As he crosses a little strip of grass into the next yard to put his flyer on the front door, he is in deep thought...thinking of who knows what where around the corner comes a "HORSE"...no a "Pony"....no it's a dog....a very BIG dog!
All I could imagine is the flyers going in the air and the agent running for his life! Well he didn't throw the flyers in the air...they were color and cost money!
Lucky for the agent he reached the edge of the yard with the dog hot on his heals...what a wonderful thing the invisible fence is...as he crossed the line of the fence the dog stopped and barked at him. The agent finally took a breath again, then wrote on a note pad, the house number down...with a little side bar note...Big Dog!
The dog stopped barking and turned wagged his tale and took about four steps back toward the house leaned it's big head down and sniffed. Then it chewed up the agents phone that fell off while he was running for his life. The agent said he went on to deliver some more of the flyers and stopped back to see if the dog swallowed his phone! Nope..it was on the lawn so the agent sneaked in to retrieved his saliva covered wounded phone. It would still dialed, if you didn't need to use a 6 or 9 in the telephone number!
He got a new phone....and I laughed until I cried...of course I wasn't the one running nor was I the one who had my phone eaten!
