ALL I hear about these days is all of this political correct crap. And Since I am one of the least politically correct people, I decided to undergo a short course. Now being the cheap bastard I am, I thought that I should be self taught and that way I don't run the risk of insulting anyone in a classroom environment.
So here goes....Lesson one.
1) There are no more neighborhoods. Neighborhood is a separation of houses, like it or not. So from now on I will only refer to these parts of town as "over there" and "Not here"
2) There are no more (un)qualified Buyers. I will not work with any clients who can actually afford houses. I will instead only work with the very poor and homeless. That way I will never have a shortage of clients, and my family will soon learn to empathize with the down trodden more since we will be sharing bowls at a soup kitchen.
3) There will be no more good or bad of anything. Everything will forever be equal in my book. If you want to see a million dollar house, we will start in the (formerly worst) part of town looking and drive around until we Stumble across it.
4) I will no longer use terms that might offend anyone. So since I speak Serbian, I will now conduct all of my business in Serbian, and only work with Americans. That will ensure that you are safeguarded.
5) I will now only work between the hours of noon and 2:00. There fore I am not calling anyone lazy by my own not being lazy.
6) There is no more Saint Augustine Grass because that might offend a religious group that doesn't recognize saints. Sorry New Orleans, I can't root for your team either.
7) I will no longer sell houses with palm trees because some palms are named Indian, queen, Chinese fan, fishtail, foxtail,
That should do it for lesson one. The reason for this blog. I just had a work product returned to me because of the phrase Pride in ownership and I was told that that term is Racial.
Now I am an international sort of fellow. I have been to more than my fair share of places, and I have shared time and broken bread with many peoples. I have studied the languages of these people and enjoyed their friendship.
I have been called everything in the longshoreman's dictionary and at one time or another been most of those things, but never have I been accused of racism.
Sorry, just venting but I would love some input from the others in the field. Is the term Pride of ownership a no-no and if so-so, what else can I no longer say about the property.
Uh, the grass is uh.....on the lawn, the house is a lovely shade of TINT.
