I had the WORST night’s sleep I’ve had in a long time. You know it’s bad when one of the 10 year olds in the house tells you you look really really tired. Let’s just say when I get stressed or overemotional I get flooded with nightmares.And Yes, they’re the kind of nightmares that have you waking up thinking they really really happened. So I woke up not only once last night but twice screaming and crying….and alone because well B works night shift. Usually I don’t mind having the big old bed to myself but last night SUCKED!
So in the spirit of my crankiness(hey might as well embrace it!) I am going to do my own WTF Wednesday. Hey I have to share the love somehow right?
If we are trying so hard to find a house to rent how come it can’t be easier? When looking we usually run into one of two things.
1. Calling on a house and then NEVER receiving a call back AT ALL. I mean there have been some houses that we have called on two or three times and left detailed messages of yes we’d really like to set up a showing for the house and to fill out an app, and they just never call back.
2. We get hold of a real live human being and they tell us they will call back with a showing time and they STILL never call back!
I don’t get it at all. I mean if you’re going to put your house up for rent wouldn’t you think you would be willing to schedule showings and at least call people back?I do get it that most people work during they day but B even told one lady that since the guy showing the house got off work at 3;30 am he could call him then,since that is normally when he takes his lunch. Still…..no phone call.
The weird thing is,we’re not only running into this problem with private renters but with rental companies as well. I know I’m not a very business minded person but umm isn’t this like basic business running 101.
I’m to the point now where I’m tempted to call them and tell them,”Hey rent to us we have money…lots and lots of money.” But then well I would have to sound like I was trying to keep a straight face and not laugh over the phone.
