Still scratching my head…..

I received an email today in my spam folder entitled, “this is why you are fat”. Now, my question is: “Who in their right mind would send out such an insulting email thinking maybe someone would open it?”

And, I called the listing agent on a property that I drove by to find out the price and he said, “you are a day late and a dollar short. It’s sold”. Totally annoyed me, and left me wondering…..why some people do and say the things they do?

  1. So true.. I have been left in awe by what some people say to me. Too many people have forgotten their manners!

  2. Maybe if someone would send me that email I may be able to control it…or not! I love your blog!

  3. Yes, my name is Arizona says

    I have no idea…all I can think is that too many people don’t think before opening their mouths! Not the greatest thing.

  4. I think it’s a safe bet to say that that realtor didn’t earn himself any future business with that snappy comeback. Sheesh.

  5. girlytwins says

    People definitely need some better manners and some more refined people skills.

  6. Crazymamaof6 says

    yup! both are way rude! i think the fat one is for people that think, how’d they know? they can solve my problem for 3 easy payments of 19.95? i need that.

    bummer on the house too.

  7. People are so weird!!! Crazy is right. SOMEONE is going to bite into that fat e-mail hook line and sinker.

  8. Hmm, sounds like you’ve run into some very rude people lately. Here’s hoping you don’t have to deal with either one ever again!

  9. Are You Serious! says

    ♥ It drives me crazy when I get spam emails!

  10. I’m convinced that some people don’t have that 5 second filter that keeps some things left unsaid. I know several people like this, it drives me crazy…

  11. Sometimes I think if people heard what they say said back to themselves before they let it loose from thier lips- they would never say it.
    The tounge is a sharp tool, used for both good and bad. Sorry about the bad you have had lately!

  12. My name is Tammie says

    Bummer on the house! I am really sorry people are so thoughtless. Really people should learn to think before speaking.

    You still out here?

  13. Who says things like that? Very unprofessional for a real estate agent to respond in such a way. I may be a “clueless realtor” but at least I’m not rude.

  14. carrie & troy keiser says

    What are people thinking? Things that make you go hummmmmmm, yes?!

  15. I often get email with the subject said ‘urgent’ from someone I never knew. I think it’s annoying and never open them. I just delete it right the time I see it on list.

  16. Totally agree on the email thing, Great opening. And the realtor…Maybe he was so excited to have sold something that he couldn’t contain himself, the market has been slow. Then again some people are in the wrong business. Kindof like one of the OB’s I had with Brooke who when I called her questioning a symptom i was experiencing asked me “why are you calling me?”

  17. I think people just don’t have a filter…obviously that realtor is in the wrong business…it seems he would need one right??? I don’t even know what to say about the e-mail….

  18. Motherhood for Dummies says

    I have just learn to kind of expect people to act dumb and then when you finally run across an individual with normal tendencies….you will be thankful and surprised. 🙂

  19. Tact isn’t a requisite human trait apparently.

    People are funny. Usually those who pride themselves on “speaking their minds” aren’t pleasant to be around.

  20. ARGH!!!

  21. That listing agent is lucky he made that sale, because given his attitude it sounds like he does not have many more in his future.

  22. Good question… Why some say and do things I’d never think of to another? Some people we’ll never understand 🙂

  23. The Jensens says

    Wow Angie, you are the most popular blogger I’ve ever seen! How do you keep up with all these comments?! haha, I’m glad you think Mya is cuter than a puggle.
    Guess what, I just got cast in a new movie. Perhaps I’ll blog about it…

  24. The Jensens says

    oh, and such a clever idea about blogging a blog. You are SO CREATIVE!

  25. Don Mills Diva says

    So rude! The SPAM is one thing but I can’t believe an agent would say that – I would let them know that it was unprofessional!

  26. Its that old saying that “Its not what you say, its how you say it.” I often wonder why people choose to be unnecessarily harsh or mean. Totally detracts from whatever you may want to say.
