In the office not at home Day 2 Covid-19 lock down. I always makes calls when I am in the car traveling, we agents spend a lot of time everyday in the car going places. Here in Massachusetts we are in lock down and are told to shelter in place (which means don't go out). This Corona virus is serious and is impacting businesses, families and countries. The only way to protect yourself is to be away from people for a time so that we can flatten out the new infection curve.
I spoke with a client this morning who wondered where I was calling from. I said from my car and I am headed to my office. A pregnant pause before he asked, "why are you going to your office?" I explained how our office has been clean and disinfected. I have my own space that no one uses but me so I should be safe. There was still hesitation and I felt I had to add more.
"I have a wonderful home office that I can do what I need to, but with the whole area shut down my wife is also home. My home office is right off the Kitchen on the first floor of our center entrance Colonial. My wife, when she is home, will sit in the living room, the next room over. As agents know, we make a lot of calls every day.
I am willing to face infection and maybe even death to not have to answer my wife calling from another room when I finish a call, "Who was that? Are you going to list their house? How much will that one sell for?" I am happy to defy the law of the land not to have to answer those questions today. I am headed to the office. In the office not at home Day 2 Covid-19 lock down
