Friday Funny - Remembering a Client that Made Me Laugh!

Every so often I have a need to call current & past clients to say THANK YOU for being great loyal clients.    A few years ago I took out some buyers stemming from one of these calls.     They have an off-kilter sense of humor like I do, and they pulled a good one on me that day.

 

We had been in the car for a few hours, and all of us were getting a bit dingy, so nearing the 4 pm mark, I kept hearing some "funny noises", but did not say a word.      These sounds would be quite apparent every 10-15 minutes in between homes, and sometimes while we were touring the homes.

 

I was thinking (to myself) that maybe it was time for them to go home, as these noises were coming more frequently.

 

On the last home, these buyers were nearing busting a gut laughing, and for the life of me, I had no idea what they were laughing about ---

 

Well --- they had downloaded this app, and wondered how long it would take me to ask if they needed to use a restroom ----

 

Funny noises

 

They did tell me they wanted to "yank on my chain", and see if they could get me, and they did --- really good!    I then laughed until I was crying.     So glad we all have such a good connection that they felt they could pull a good one on me!      BUT, turnabout is fair play, RIGHT?

 

Happy Friday!Happy Friday

Lise, this couple was a repeat client (a few times), so we all knew each other pretty well.

Hi Joan,

I am busting a gut on that one.  I probably would have ignored those sounds as you did.  I would not want to embarrass a client.  It is also a testament to you that your clients felt at ease with you.

Hi Joan- I love to laugh and love people with a sense of humor. I've had clients who wouldn't laugh if you tickled them with a feather.
