REAL ESTATE...... DOES IT BUG YOU.....? Archive special report

I have been...in Real Estate since 1978. It has never BUGGED me..... but has caused me to visit with a lot of bugs..... TAKE FOR INSTANCE............

                           

Sellers Bug:.....This bug...looks and sounds bigger than it is, and often is mistaken for being more bug than it is worth......it is a rather large bug, brightly colored with a hard shell that can only be cracked from the inside..

Buyers bug:...this one moves fast and cannot be caught unless it wants to be. Has legs like a centipede and eats well when it finds what it likes. Once comfortable, it settles down for periods of time.

Agent bug......likes to get into everything and explore.... always looking for an opportunity to feast anywhere it finds food. Doesn't mind working or helping other bugs to help itself.

Escrow bug......only moves when there is a purpose. then, it hibernates......

Investor bug...many legged, fast and moves with a purpose. Hard to catch and hold. Always escaping if threatened and has a poison stinger to use if provoked. Eats very little when up and about, but likes to feast when at rest on its prey. Gathers food for long term survival, but is capable of catching, eating, and digesting fast foods to survive short term so that it can reproduce itself quicker.

The shopper bug....likes to make squeaking noises and visit with other bugs leaving behind a trail as to where it has been. It has no known agenda, but acts like it does. Very hard to catch, easy to observe however. Can look like it has a purpose and make important sounds that are not.

Foreclosure bugs......Looking like locusts and traveling in hordes and swarms...these prey on all other bugs having mandibles, legs and one mission in life which is to feed and reproduce at all costs. Have been known to devour whole neighborhoods .....legends say....they eat people and all.

Bank bugs......cannot be identified by looking at either end of the bug because both ends look alike. If stepped on, the surviving part has the ability to reproduce and turn into a new bug. These bugs can attach themselves to a human being, and never let go until the person is sick or dying. Then, they feast on the remains while looking for new nesting sites. Breed all year long and found in dark places.Appear cute, but have large hidden teeth.

Government bugs.....these bugs are always found to be on top of everything, feeding and directing other bugs while they sit around and bring nothing to the party except their appetite. They are very good at explaining how they DO have value through chirping noises that no one knows what they mean.

Real Estate bugs.....these little creatures have been around for quite some time. Very active and productive. Cute when held, do not bite and some live extraordinary long lives. Attracted to all cultures of people and will try to add value if not interfered with.......

WHAT'S BUGGING YOU..................?

Richie - A great Bug's Tale to say the least. I do find most of them spot on. It is a bit sad and worrisome to read about the bank and government bugs. Time to call the exterminator.

I think the bug that bugs me the most is the inexperienced BPO bug.  The bank bugs think he's adding value and he's just puffed up like a newly-fed mosquito and will deflate again soon!  I've had two of these in the last while that have just done too much over-inflating!

Cara...the BPO bug thinks it is providing a valuable service and is closely related to the mosquito....Expected to die out in 2-4 years....
