Go Home!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Those two words, "Go Home" should be said carefully.

The Titus and Philemon cartoon above has nothing to do with our new rescue dog, Baby, as Timmothy wrote this years ago. Baby is home to stay at our home (and Hers).

Think of all the contexts that "Go Home" could be. It could be directed at a guest who has stayed to long, it could be said with fondness as in "I can hardly wait to go home".

It could also be said to a Real Estate professional when a client has seen to many homes in a day and the Realtor has just said "let me show you one more I know you are going to love it".

Just for fun I was thinking how an innocent comment could be misinterpreted.

"I'm sorry we didn't find the perfect house for you today, let's GO HOME". Client is thinking the Realtor is thinking: "sorry you don't have one but I do and I've had enough of you".

"You showed us plenty of homes today, now it's time to call it a day and go home". Realtor thinks client is thinking: "That last house was GREAT, let's ditch this agent and have our nephews'  second wife write it up for us".

Okay, I could go on all day with this silliness and if you want to add your own please go ahead BUT the point is think before you use the words "GO HOME" when you are working with clients.

The cartoon above is number one in a series of three. I think it's a good/funny series so I may continue it later or tomorrow depending upon your reaction. 

Thank you once again to Timmothy N. Timm for the use of his comic strip Titus & Philemon. To learn more about Timmothy N Timm, The Titus & Philemon Art Gallery and/or The Timmothy N Timm Art Studio visit his website HERE.

Timmothy's toon is pretty darn good.  I think he's found a niche in life, Bob!

I think he has as well Myrl Jeffcoat . Just like Charles Schutz knew he had a lifeof "Peanuts" in front of him Timmothy knows his life is going to be full of Titus & Philemon.

Thank you for the feature in the Old Farts Club 😄.

Good morning, Bob... that Baby is too beautiful for words. Good thing you're so far away or she might be going home to another home.
