So friday night Kathy went out with me and we put up 10 bandit signs after we did a lil xmas shopping. It felt good to get out there and put some signs up again.
I did get a call friday afternoon from a guy who saw one of my signs somewhere before but ummm honestly I couldn’t understand a word he was saying to me. He asked “do you have a bad connection? you can’t hear me?” And I said “no I can’t hear you…must be my connection I’ll call you back.” But the truth of the matter was he had such a THICK, HEAVY spanish accent that I couldn’t understand any word that he was saying. I don’t know how I’m going to communicate with him, seriously.
I spoke to the Shillington people and told them that I couldn’t do a deal with them. They were the folks with the 20k they owed to bankruptcy, etc. The way the guy explained things to me it just didn’t make sense….I told him that if he’d like I’d be more than happy to talk to his bk attorney, but right now I don’t think anything is going to pan out. He said “but we agreed on $197k for my house?” Btw, the house is worth about 199k…so I’m sure ya’ll can guess that I agreed to NO SUCH THING lol Anyway, I told him that I would have never agreed to that price, I’d be out of business quick if I did, I told him I agreed to potentially do a shortsale with his 2nd, etc. Anyway…bottomline is I think he’s pissed at me now…but I really didn’t want to waste time on that deal…..It would have just frustrated me and thanks Cory for helping me to really see that I shouldn’t waste my time with that deal either.
So I bought Kathy a pair of pink camouflage pants tonight lol don’t ask….but she’s been wanting the stupid things forever..I swear she is like the hardest person to buy for…it’s cuz she gives ZERO clues throughout the year (well except for the silly pink camouflage pants lol) We had a small budget for each other this year…$250…..and I spent most of it on a white gold and tanzanite necklace (hmmm I hope she doesn’t know about this darn blog.) Anyway, I think neck year we aren’t gonna really do the xmas gift exchange thing…instead we’re gonna save our money for weekend getaways and vacations, etc. A friend of ours and her husband do that and we thought it was a great idea!
Anyway…off to bed and then wrapping some presents in the morning and then heading to a family xmas function tomorrow evening
