(Insert major giggles here from both Steve and me). We were laughing hysterically when I woke up to a million messages and alerts yesterday. After hemin’ and hawin’ about going into another sales field I decided I just need to get it done. I already passed my real estate exam and got a job, with a very cool company I might add. But I have been putting off the inevitable networking. I feel like I keep switching fields left and right or falling backwards into fields I’m not interested in.
What’s a girl to do? I can’t get paid to stay home with my girls so let me be a Kramer (Seinfeld) and make money in a bunch of different ways; keeps things fun and interesting.
Anyway after finally formulating yet another, career letter, I send it out and decide to throw out a text as well; cover all my bases. At 9:30pm Saturday night I sent it. Shortly after H, who had been running a fever all day, started fussing so I went to lay down with her. I woke up at 8:00 the next morning still in her bed.
Apparently the texts that were rejected were being resent….along with all the others! So many people were receiving texts multiple times and into the wee hours of the morning! Most people were laughing about it while others were annoyed until I explained what happened.
The bad news- doesn’t look good to potential clients. The good news- they won’t forget what I do!
This reminds me of the grand story of when I worked for Ryan Homes. I had my huge prospect list that I had e-mailed to let them know I was having an open house. My buddy Joe e-mailed me about the food he was going to steal and I replied, to all, something along the lines of, “Keep your hands of my good sucka!”
Thank God I had really cool prospects that knew me well (what I lack in closing skills I make up for in relationships and follow-up), so when I started getting replies with nothing but LOL in the body I thought “oh no…here we go again”
Needless to say Steve finds this trait endearing since I constantly make a fool of myself and am forever putting my foot in my mouth. I think it runs in the family; ask Holly.
