    You’d Better Throw In The Cars, Too

    | Kansas City, MO, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling **** Realtors, this is ****, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi, I’m interested in 734 **** Street. Could you tell me more information about it?”

    Me: “You must mean 732 **** Street?”

    Customer: “No, 734.”

    Me: “Does the house have a sign in the yard that says **** Realtors?”

    Customer: “No, but the one next door does. I figured I’d just call you guys since you sell houses.”

    Me: “Has it occurred to you that somebody probably lives in 734 **** Street?”

    Customer: “Well, yeah, but can’t you just, like…give it to me?”

    Me: “You want me to call the family and tell them that they have to leave their house because I’m selling it to you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, that would be good. And can I move in by Thursday? I’m all packed.”

    (It took a good 15 minutes to explain to him that I couldn’t just sell random peoples’ homes.)
