The five things that pissed me off last week

I am not sure when this turned into a Wednesday column. It used to be a Monday column, then a Tuesday column, and now a Wednesday column. I am 100% sure that it is because of laziness. Anyways, here ya go...

#5 - We get assigned time at work to answer calls and pick up clients. It seems like every time it is my time, my phone does not ring even though the person BEFORE me got calls, and the person AFTER me got calls. It was funny at first, but it is really getting annoying. How can one person be this unlucky? Just another sign that the real estate gods hate me and want me to leave.

#4 - The last three days, the paper boy hasn't placed our paper on our porch. It has been way down the driveway. Sure, you can call me lazy for not walking out to get it, but when it is guaranteed to be on your porch, I have a right to complain.

#3 - I am in a poker rut. I haven't played for money since my last post, but my online fake money account has gotten smaller the past week after many bad games. I don't know what is going on. Did I use all of my poker voodoo? I have a real game Saturday so we shall see.

#2 - Another real estate winner! I was referred to a buyer because the guy only spoke Spanish. The exciting part was that he already knew what house he wanted. All I had to do was show the house to the wife because she hadn't seen it yet. If she liked it, we sign papers and my first transaction would be done. Simple right? Well, we were scheduled to see the house on Tuesday afternoon. I called Tuesday morning to confirm. What did they tell me. They found a house they liked better the night before and signed papers. Like that, deal gone. You know, if this keeps up, I am going to have to start looking for a new job in about 6 months and that is 100% the truth. I hate that because I LOVE my job...

#1 - Is there any doubt of what would be #1. Of course it would have to be psycho hillbilly road rage man(that would be his super villain name.) Even when I think of the events (go back a few posts if you don't know what I am talking about), I start to get so steamed!

I've said it before and I'll say it again - MAKE A SACRIFICE TO THE REAL ESTATE GODS!! I know you love your job and I can see how happy you are so I hope with all my might every single day that you'll get some luck. Hang in there, sweetie. I'll be behind you 150 - 200% (did you get the reference?!)

Hang in there darling! If it wasn't for that darn money issue you really are doing good. That is just the nature of the business you are in. But, believe it or not, you are making progress. I don't want to see you leave a job you love so much. I've seen you unhappy and now I see how happy you are. I know you and Jess might disagree with me big time on this but maybe we can see you at church on Sunday. Who knows!!! Would it hurt?!?

I have faith things will turn around for you. Luck goes in cycles and yours will move in your favor soon. I feel it.
Regarding the hillbilly psycho, he came to my work last week. He was yelling and screaming and stamping his feet like a fool. Details are too much for this blog but believe me, he was scarry.
Hey, this is the first time the Kings weren't on the list! They looked good on Tuesday. Maybe things are changing for the better.
