A Tooth Is Not Supposed To Be Blue

I showed the house yesterday. Thanks to my mom and her staging skills, my friend Nikki and her cleaning skills and my kids’ school for the after school program skills, we pulled it off. The lady sounded serious on the phone. 

They drove up in a BMW and a Lincoln Navigator. Or was it an Escalade? 

They looked at the house. For about 10-15 minutes. They didn’t open a cabinet, didn’t walk to the storage building, nothing. I showed them around and then sat down, thinking they’d look. Then the men (3 of them) walked out. The mother took her time telling me how pretty it was decorated. Then the lady who was really looking started saying stuff about finding out the appraisal value (she didn’t ask me what it was, she just hinted that she’d find out). I think she was trying to intimidate me. She kept asking if our price was firm. I told her we would certainly consider any offer. 

Then she got in her Beemer and drove off. 

I have no problem with the showing. I think anyone who can drive what they drive can afford our house, and I kind of resent her hinting that we are asking too much. 

But what really just crawls all over me is the headset attached to her ear. 

I can’t stand those things. 

I’m so sorry if you have one. I don’t mean to offend. But seriously y’all…doesn’t it look just a tiny bit disrespectful when having a one on one conversation and the thing on the side of your face is BLINKING?

It’s the same thing when I’m in the grocery and the lady beside me looking at cereal is talking to herself, only she’s not. It’s weird. And it makes me uncomfortable. 

I’m all for it when driving, or exercising, or doing something that keeps you from having free hands. But walking through a house? Take it off. At church? Take it off. On a date with your sweetie at the fair? Give me a break and take the thing off. 

I’ve never been accused of being lukewarm on the issues. I’m a hot or cold kind of gal, and I’m pretty dadburn cold on those headset thingys. 

If I want people to think I’m nuts, I’ll introduce them to my kids. Talking to myself in the grocery store just can’t hold a candle to them.

    Haha! I feel the same way! I personally think they look like they should be on an episode of STAR TREK.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
