Remember when your kids were teens and pre-teens? They run through the house, leaving the door behind them wide open, plopping their shoes, and other belongings on the floor, right in middle of the floor? Teens are totally egocentric, and most have little thought for those who pick up after them.
Ahhhh.... I remember it well.
I don't have to remember it... I'm currently living it. Showing property, sometimes as the buyer's agent, sometimes as the listing agent. I have seen buyers walking through the house... when I ask them to remove their shoes, they just pop them off and leave them in the middle of the foyer. They open a door, or turn on the lights... and then when they're done walk away leaving the door open, and the lights one. What are they... teenagers?
It's my job, as the real estate agent, to make sure that the property we're showing is secure when we leave. Doors that were locked when we arrive, must be locked when we leave. The buyers unlocked the back door, walked out to view the yard, and when they return, leave the door ajar, or unlocked... as though their mother will pick up after them.
In my rounds through the house, I turn off lights, lock doors... and find lights that I'd already turned off, that have been turned back on. Closet doors opened, and left open. Sliding doors left unlocked, window blinds pulled up, that were down before. yeesh... I guess I'm their mother!?
Today's vent over.
