Thinking I'm going to BURY my next lockbox....

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Realty Arts

My back aches, and blood rushes to my head.

Pounding pressure in my temples

And, my glasses are trying to slip off my face...

And, I can't see the combo dial.

But at least it is raining, so my skin isn't drying out.

Hoping that electrical conduit is sound, and the GFI is operable,

Regretting holding 20 sheets of paper while trying to dial.

Resisting putting my knee down on the wet sidewalk,

But maybe I need to belly crawl to sneak up on this baby.

And... I'm inspired

I'm going to BURY my next lockbox,

BURY it. Pour concrete over it.

Electrify it.

Behind the jagged holly bush

Under the leaky downspout

Next to the aromatic garbage bin

Preferably where there is an overhanging something

For agents to bump their heads on

To knock their glasses off

Yep that's it.

But... But...

But, all in all, it was a good day showing homes!

Steve,

I am sure it is an under-represented demographic.

Some of us are vertically challenged and I"ve had one on a light fixture that I couldn't reach.  I think a giant put it up,

Team,

Not my listing, although I could see it happening in a semi-conscious moment....  =)

Mike - I can not believe that you guys don't use the Supra Lockboxes up there???  If I don't have a place to put the lockbox, I have posts with special hooks for hanging the lockbox....and I just plant those in the ground near the front door.  Funny Post!!!

Denise,

We have been hearing rumors of Supra for a year or so, but nothing yet.  We really do owe a better level of security to our Sellers, though.

Thanks!
