If you are looking for an animal related charity to donate some of those holiday bucks too...this is a good one.

Work Related: This Sucks

I know I don't usually post specific experiences with clients, but I am very annoyed pissed off right now.

I spent 4 days with a very nice older couple here from out of state.
They had to buy a house for cash ASAP.

I showed them more than 40 houses, used more than 2 tanks of gas and dried out a ton of ink to print paperwork, surveys, disclosures, MLS sheets and such for them.

So...
They made two offers. We got counter offers, but fair ones.
Really, they could have had either home at a very good price.

Then....
I get an email this afternoon that they are going home and "might" come back for another look at the market in the Spring.

You know what?
I gave up 3 pre-qualfied LOCAL Clients to other agents in my office so I could free up time for this crap.

At least I had the foresight to pull out those homes I thought may interest other clients I am working with.

Maybe I can get something going there.

At least I hope I can....*sigh*

Friday Cat Duck Blogging

We had a little cool front come through just in time to make
Thanksgiving "feel" like a Thanksgiving.
These guys seem to be enjoying the cooler weather as much as we do.

Shopping: Black Friday

I've noticed a trend of stores actually opening ON Thanksgiving (Kmart for example) in order to get a jump on Black Friday Shoppers.

This year I see JC Penney and Kohls are opening-I mean did open- this morning at 4am.

I refuse to attend this type of sale. Why reward greedy corporations that do this to their employees just to turn a few post T-day bucks when they could easily have the same sale at 9am?

The execs that dream up these type of promotions are most likely warm in bed this morning, enjoying a 4 day weekend with their families, and make more per month than those employees do all year.

It's just not right.

*steps off soap box*
