Showing property early today took on a whole new dimension.
As I left my home to venture out to my first appointment, I realized that today was going to call for some unusual real estate gear.
With all the smoke from the Georgia and Florida wild fires being blown over southwest Florida today, even those of us in Englewood experienced ASH SHOWERS early in the day. Yes, small particles of ash were falling from the sky and accumulating on our cars and making it hard to breath. Stinky too! I had flashbacks to Mt. St. Helen's! I had to protect my customers!
So, back into the house I went to dig out a few surgical masks (from the costume closet) and umbrellas (just in case) to provide to my two elderly customers.
As I approached the sweet elderly couple, equipped with ASH DAY trappings... they smiled....giggled...and said "How thoughtful!" as they adjusted their protection gear and proudly climbed into the car.
I escorted these folks (dressed in their surgical mask-protection gear and wielding two umbrellas) to four beautiful homes and the property of their dreams. By early afternoon, the ashes dissapated and we were able to agree on terms without mumbling through masks.
Don't be a ninny!
Watch the elders and learn from them.
They have no fear of "what others may think!"
Be aware of your surroundings,
think fast and
even when the sky is falling,
BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN SUCCEED!
