It doesn`t get any better than this! I`m doing an Open House yesterday between 12:00PM-4:00PM and everything is going well. I have 10 Open House signs placed within a 1/4 mile radius, our Open House is in the front of the home. All bases are covered, we`re prepared and ready for some traffic.
Well, that`s not the case. Around 1:00 an associate of my calls on the phone and proceeds to tell me that it appears that our A frame metal signs have been placed around another home and it looks like it`s a FSBO! She gives me the address, I slowly count to 10~ and screeeeaaammm! I`m beyond ticked off, this isn`t the first time, this has happened to me!
It seems that it`s "Open Season on Open House Signs" in South Florida! With that I proceed to drive in my car, to reclaim my property. When I arrive GOLLY GEE, there they are! I knock on the door, and the FSBO greets me with a SH&T Eating grin, "Hello, welcome to our beautiful home,please come in" they say! I decide to to play it coy! I immediately ask " I noticed the Open House Sign outside" is this home listed with a Realtor? They tell me NO, That's when I attack! I begin to blow up "I know you`re not dealing with a Realtor, I yell, the reason is that the DAMN SIGNS you just stole are mine! HOW DARE YOU!?!?!". The hubby starts telling me that he didn`t realize those signs belonged to anyone, they were on the ground!
Now, my heart starts running and I`m off to the races " LOOK, IF YOU~RE TOO CHEAP TO BUY YOUR OWN SIGNS,DON~T LIE ABOUT WHERE YOU FOUND THESE".. With that I proceed to grab my signs and get in my car!
The wifie now starts Yelling at me "HEY, WE NEED THESE SIGNS,LEAVE THEM ALONE AND GET OFF MY PROPERTY BEFORE I CALL LA POLICIA!" I can`t help myself except now laugh.. I tell the WIFIE in my best Spanish "GO AHEAD, YOU~VE STOLEN PRIVATE PROPERTY,I~LL MAKE SURE TO PRESS CHARGES ON YOU BOTH!!!"......... How is it possible that people can think this way?
