Crazy Realtors

My cell phone rang today and I didn’t recognize the number.  My standard operating procedure in this situation is to not answer.  Moments later, my voice mail beeped.

Voicemail: “Teri?  This is Jeff with [Realty Company].  I was calling to see if you were still interested in that apartment.  Give me a call.”

I called him back and I swear the following is the phone conversation we had:

Jeff:  “Hello?”
Me: “Hi, this is Teri.  I’m sorry, I just missed your phone call.”
Jeff: “Teri, hi!  I met you in a bar the other night.”
Me: “What?”
Jeff: “Don’t you remember, or were you too drunk?  You were pretty drunk.”
Me: “No, I don’t remember.”
(I’m thinking, Well, this is going to be embarrassing.  The guy has me confused with someone else.)
Jeff: “Yeah, I have all these pictures on my cell phone of you swinging your shirt around your head.  You have to remember that.”
Me: “No, can’t say that I do.”
Jeff: [laughs] “Teri, I’m just kidding.”
Me: “That’s good.  I was really starting to wonder who exactly you thought I was.”
Jeff: “I was just calling to see if you were still interested in that apartment we talked about.”
Me: “I recently signed on another place.  Thanks for calling me back though.”
Jeff: “No problem.  If you ever need to move again just keep us in mind.  And I’ll keep those pictures on file just in case.”
Me: “Okay, you do that.”

Nice guy.  Weird phone call.

  1. LMAO

    I wonder what he says when he’s really trying to pick someone up.

    “Hey (insert random hottie)! Do you remember me? I tried to rent you an apartment last week. … What? … You don’t remember? …” Etc.


    Teri, oh Teri…

    Why does all the fun, exciting, hilarious stuff… happen to YOU?

    I will never tire of your LJ posts.

  2. What the Hell? I guess some random realtor though there was some imaginary connection between the two of you whenever he showed you whatever random apartment. Enough of a connection that he could be totally unprofessional and familiar yet you would still rent an apartment from him. This guy is going to get fired very soon.

What do you think?
