A Different Wizard

Behind The Curtain

Now It’s Really Time 

For

That Visit to Aahs!

 

While some may wish to seek the identity of what is beyond “the curtain” there are those who can delight in more ordinary adventures.  



Yes, it truly takes all kinds.  And the definition of what “it” is could be explored but is that necessary?   After all isn’t making something extra out of ordinary rather  

extraordinary?  



Take a moment - just a moment - and discover the Aahs that surround you.

Michael,

Somehow, I was no longer following you.  I just figured it out.  With the paucity of posts to comment on, I hate the idea of losing followers!  Nina Hollander, Broker maybe that happened to you also!  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I've experienced that for quite a long time now... people I've followed for years suddenly are no longer showing as being followed.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel and Nina Hollander, Broker - I don't know if it is my clumsy fingers(where accidentally hitting the unfollow button can be quite easy) or something more glitchy even sinister but I have noticed many members who I have followed for years suddenly disappear.  Thank you for the follow again.

Hi Michael- my Ahhh moment came this morning while I watched a mama bird feed her little baby at our feeder. It doesn't take much for me but I love it.

Hey there Michael Jacobs do you ever ponder what you may have asked the wizard for?

Wendy Rulnick - best of luck(and success) as you search.  

 

 

Rocky Dickerson - I'm not sure if wizards work in similar ways as fairies and other wish-granters do but if they do I think more kindness and less divisiveness might be a good start.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - it seems you are fortunate to surround yourself with many such moments.  

 

 

James Dray - you demonstrate that action on a daily basis.  And it proves to work well for you.  Each person you encounter benefits as well.

Michael, I still want to say --- can YOU be the wizard and fix some of these issues here on AR.    It took 5 minutes and two time-outs to get my post out today.   UGH!

Speaking of ah-has, Michael, an agent in my office worked across the table with another local agent and told me about her experience this morning - definitely something to ponder...

 

"I can tolerate arrogance & I can tolerate ignorance but, the two together are nothing short of dangerous!" 

 

The agent had cited contract law, which was COMPLETELY wrong and then when corrected, made up some hair-brained excuse for not knowing the clause within our Contract. She did this MULTIPLE times!

*Author's note - I'm considering sending that agent information on retirement!!

 

This reminded me of what you are referring to here. The ignor-arrogance seems to be quite prevalent right now!

 

I am not even inspired to grab the popcorn! LOL

Arrogance + Ignorance = Rudeness in the first degree.

AGREED, Pete Xavier! What is really sad is that they are representing this arrogance and ignorance to their clients who choose them as their fiduciary.

I'm surrounded by Ahs most of the time. It doesn't take much to catch my attention and raise questions.

Debe Maxwell, CRS - some "performances" prompt, maybe even demand, a walk out prior to the ending. . .  

 

 

Sharon Tara - there's a lot of truth in the awe-some comment.

Agreed, Michael! As I mentioned, it's really sad for the client...forget the folks on the other side.
