Have you heard this one?

By
Real Estate Agent with Signature Homes & Estates

 
A client bought a new home and the broker wanted to send flowers for the occasion.
They arrived at the home and the owner read the card; it said "Rest in Peace".

The owner was angry and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist said. "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry you should imagine this: somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, "Congratulations on your new home".

Funny Claudia, I pulled this one up a few months back, all my broker said when he read it was that I had a sick sense of humor.... LOL, he was right.

It is a lot easier to find a home then a burial plot these days, Homes are a dime a dozen, but burial sites are tough because people are just dieing to get in there.
