There once was a Real Estate Broker who worked in Parsippany. She was always far too busy running around, with pagers going off, phones, faxes, etc. She thought she knew the areas she serviced inside out, and she conveyed a false sense of confidence to her clients as well. But, there was something that she was not aware of. Those nice girl scouts that were in the neighborhood were not so nice at all.
This Real Estate Broker drove a client to a nice home in a quiet part of Parsippany. There were no stores nearby. It was just a bedroom community, or so she thought. But, there was a lot more going on in this quiet neighborhood than our Real Estate Agent friend thought. A group of seemingly innocent girl scouts approached her offering to sell her some cookies. She politely declined. That is where the trouble started. These girls were sick and tired of hearing the term, “No thanks”. The only thing worse were terms that exuded a false sense of hope for the future like, “Maybe next time”. These girls wanted to save enough money for their camping trip — and they were vindictive too.
The client of our Real Estate Agent friend had parked at the Real Estate Office only a mile away. These evil girl scouts had a friend in the parking lot of the Real Estate Office. They had walkie talkies. The girls saw who the lady was who was seeing the house. They radioed back to their friends in the parking lot. They knew which car was the client’s. They disconnected her battery, so that she would be afraid to ever come back. They were trying to put this Real Estate Broker out of business by sabotaging all of her clients — just to get back at her for not buying her cookies.
So, from now on, when a girl scout offers you some cookies — buy extra. Your business could depend on it!
(1) Those nice girl scouts in the neighborhood were not so nice at all. They couldn’t take “no” for an answer.
(2) The “nice” girl scouts got on their walkie talkies & had their friend disconnect the Realtor’s battery. (who wouldn’t buy their cookies)
(3) The “nice” girl scouts had their friend disconnect the Realtor’s battery after she wouldn’t buy their cookies!
(4) When the Realtor found out her engine wouldn’t start, she tossed her own cookies. #girlscouts #notary
