How rude!

Why do people have to be so inconsiderate? I am amazed almost daily at the lack of consideration that most humans have for each other. But today really takes the cake. I do try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but with each passing day, this task grows harder and harder.

Now, if you've ever tried to sell a house, you know how stressful it can be. You have to jump when the realtor calls to say, "someone wants to see the house tonight". OK. So you clean the house 'til it sparkles. Then you make the kids sit still for an hour until it's time to leave the house. Then you have to find somewhere to go. This isn't hard if you are single or have no kids. But at 7pm, there are not many places where small children will behave for an hour. Then you get to come home and it's already past their bedtime, but they want to play, and they're very cranky because its late. So then you get to try to wrangle them into the tub and then to bed.

Well, this would all be worth it if the person who came to see your house put in an offer and bought your house. But when the people just don't show up at all, it is absolutely maddening!!! Especially when this has happened a few times in the last 3 months since the house when on the market. I mean, if you drive by and you don't like something about it enough that you don't want to even step inside, that's fine. But leave a card, a note, a dirty tissue...something...anything!

To all of the inconsiderate people out there, please try just once to think of the person on the other side and how your actions affect them. You may be on the other side someday...
