Coronavirus - He Did What?! I received a text from one of my agents, who said one of our local mortgage brokers has coronavirus. I asked where she heard this, and she forwarded me a Facebook post written by the local mortgage broker, which said that he "just got diagnosed with the Coronavirus" and he was "stuck in quarantine."
Later in the day, I found out that it was all a joke. The mortgage broker ended up deleting the FB post after alarm bells went off in our local Realtor community. But, there was no follow-up mention on FB that it was all a joke.
What do you think? Should a member of our Realtor community (or anyone for that matter) be joking about such things? Is simply deleting the post enough? Should he apologize and let everyone know it was a joke? Should he be hung by his toes in the town square until he calls Uncle? (wink-wink) Should he be forgiven for crying wolf?
