The Real Estate Broker and the Power of Attorney for Property Management
EVELYN: I want to sell that investment property of mine. It is nothing but trouble.
ALAN: That’s too bad, I’m rather fond of that house.
EVELYN: You’re just fond of it because you wanted to live in it. But, you can’t afford it, and neither can I.
CHARLIE: I can.
BERTA: Go ahead… rub it in. The rest of us have to work all day, and we still can barely get by.
EVELYN: At least you have a job, and in a nice home. There are many people who are out of work. Like that lousy louse of a manager who I fired last week.
ALAN: Is he the one you wanted to…
EVELYN: Oh, can it. I lost interest in him years ago, the minute I learned that…
JAKE: The minute you learned what?
CHARLIE: If you don’t like managing it, why not hire someone else to take care of it. It’s not like you don’t know the best property managers in town.
EVELYN: I thought about that, but you know… trying out a new manager is much easier than dealing with a property sale. You never know how long that could take.
ALAN: Well, I know a very nice notary if you are interested.
EVELYN: Well, send him over. I can have the Power of Attorney drafted by tomorrow. My Attorney will handle it. I have him wrapped around my finger.
CHARLIE: That’s what you said about the plumber.
EVELYN: Well, I thought I did, until I found out he was gay.
ALAN: Oh, so that’s why he was always so friendly with me. Wait a second. Do people think that I’m …
JAKE: I heard that if girls think you’re gay, they’ll consider you to be more approachable.
EVELYN: Now, where did you hear that?
CHARLIE: I suddenly remember that I have an appointment on the other side of town, and I’m running late. Oh boy, gotta go…
JAKE: A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. (making a gay hand gesture)
EVELYN: Now, that is manipulative, deceptive, and just…
BERTA: Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it. Do what you gotta do kid! I once pretended to be lesbian to get a job. The wife was so afraid that her husband and I would… well, you know. But, once she found out I was lesbian, she was willing to give me a chance.
JAKE: So, how did the job end?
BERTA: When she found me in the back seat of their station wagon with her husband. (shrugging her shoulders)
EVELYN: This is what you share with my grandson? Of all the bad examples!
(the next day)
EVELYN: I’ve got my Power of Attorney for Property Management all drafted. Now, the notary will be here any minute.
SAL: Did someone call for a notary?
EVELYN: Right this way please. Let’s sit at the dining room table.
SAL: May I see some ID ma’am?
EVELYN: Here you go. It’s current. That was three hair styles ago.
SAL: What color are you eyes ma’am?
EVELYN: Oh, I thought you’d never ask. You mean my real eyes?
SAL: Just tell me what it says on the ID I’m looking at. Then, I’ll know it’s you. Do you want this to be multiple choice?
SAL: Sign here in my journal, sign the docs, and I’ll give you my stamp.
EVELYN: Well, you certainly are a distinguished notary!
SAL: Thanks. It’s because I do a lot of distinguishing!
CHARLIE: What he means is that he know how to spot a fake ID.
JAKE: Yeah, like the one you used that got you locked up in jail overnight last year.
ALAN: Oh please don’t remind me. That was the worst night of my life. Sitting there in the waiting room.
EVELYN: Gotta go. I’m having a meeting with my new property manager. Steve!
JAKE: Do you have him wrapped around your finger too?
EVELYN: Well, actually, he has me wrapped around his — but, it’s revocable dear…
