Attention Group members

By
Real Estate Agent with Saint Paul Home Realty

We could use some more posts!  I just noticed that we have 8 members which I find amazing and most of us our women.  Maybe we could share some stories or ideas?

 

I'll tell a little story - - once upon a time there was a REALTOR named Teresa  . . . nah too lame even for me.  Anyway here are some possible topics:

1.  What to do when sorounded by perky people.

2.  Do you smile all of the time, or just when someone is looking?

3.  How do you feel about REALTORS who wear sexy clothes and have sexy pictures on the internet?

4.  Do you take rejection personally, or is it just business?

5.  Should I change the way I have loser spelled or does that work for our group?

By the way I know that none of us are loosers or angry but put it in the title because it sounded good.  I am not a loner when it comes to life but am a loner when it comes to work.  I am sourounded by people who have teams but have a hard time finding people that I can work with.  I am not sure why.  When I go to the meetings at Keller Williams and people introduce them selves they add that they are from the xyz team.  I have started saying I am Teresa Boardman, an army or one!  Are you an army of one?  If so why?

LOL ~ Perky people are ok as long as they are perky for a good reason.  The ones that are make believe perky, I sometimes want to smack!  :)  I'm a realist when it comes to things so I tend to call things as I see them. Sometimes that bites.

I think spelling is important. When I make a mistake I want to know about it so I can change it.  Afterall the public reads this...

I see we can now post only to this group.  That's a good thing, because I suspect not all posts will be for general consumption.  Now tell me, do we get "points" for posts just to this group? Does a post here count toward the 10 a week?

OK, I guess I need to study this whole group thing.  I thought the only way to post was to write a blog then attach it to this 'group.' 

I see we have a deal where we can message the whole group. Does that show up on the group or just in our email?

I am confused as usual...please 'splain somemore..

I enjoyed "looser"  Now I am confused has groups changed? 

1.  What to do when sorounded by perky people.

Take a Valium

2.  Do you smile all of the time, or just when someone is looking?

I only smile when no one is looking.

3.  How do you feel about REALTORS who wear sexy clothes and have sexy pictures on the internet?

I think more men should wear sexy clothes and photos on the internet. 

4.  Do you take rejection personally, or is it just business?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

5.  Should I change the way I have loser spelled or does that work for our group?

it worked for me....

maureen,

Nice to see you here!  You have a point about men in sexy clothes, i would like to see more of that too, but just the young nice looking guys.  The group has not changed, I just did not want Kristal to quit us and I know that Leanne has a hard time with things being spelled wrong.  She was really cool about it but i think it bothered her.  Just because we are loners does not mean we have to be inconsiderate.  I don't think anyone in the group is angry either, but if you wnat to be we can change it back.

Kristal,

You can do a regular post and attach it to the group or you can come over to the group and post inside, which I think is really cool.  I know you are a raging type A so I hate to break it to you but you do not get points for posting just to the group.  There are some things in life that are just more important than points like us all getting together and chatting a bit. 

Was thinking about your comment about smacking perky people, maybe we could have group goals or contests to see how many perky people we could smack in a year. :)

I am reassesing my involvement in the group... I think although it would probably irk the Jeff Belongers of the world I might have to start an alternate Active Rain group with the original title, mispelling, the word angry.... 

Or maybe I will just stay in this group and sulk over the whole thing... that's it... I'll sulk.

I guess maybe I am screwed up.  Loosers sounds like, well we are loose.  Now that can be taken in more than one way, if I can't control how it's taken, I'm not sure I want to be associated with a bunch of loose losers.

Teresa, aren't you French? Do you speak French?  Maybe if you say it in French we won't notice if it's bad or good or if it's spelled right.

I'm a little pissy about no points. You know everything I do is for points.  When we go on vacation and we are looking for a good restaurant, the one who picks a good one gets points.  We also get points for various occasions throughout the day.  In fact, my friends from Chicago played and they aren't even AR members.

LIfe for me is about points. So Ms. Loser Chairperson what are you going to do about that?  Keeping my misfit attention maybe hard.

FYI ~ I tried to rank this post I got this:

An Unexpected Error Occurred.

We've notified the appropriate people at ActiveRain about this error. Sorry! We'll try to get whatever caused this fixed as soon as possible. Please click here to return to the home page.
 

What's up with that, guess you can't be ranked!  Bummer...maybe I am hangin' with the wrong people.

ps, I liked the dropping of angry.    I know it is an emotion, and neither good nor bad, but I think the perception could be that we are complainers, or something.  Don;t get me wrong. I am a complainer.  I just do not like to admit it.

I gave this post a five and it did not call me a loser or say anything disrespectful like you flunked the human test or anything, which is good.  Actually I love it when it says I flunked the human test.  

Teresa: MF is right you can reremove angry... we can camouflage our angryness and lure them in....

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

Hey you guys, I felt sorry for you all so I joined LOL

Hey nothing like a good survey to get me riled up!

1.  What to do when surrounded by perky people.

Sneak away

2.  Do you smile all of the time, or just when someone is looking?

I only smile to keep my face from drooping

3.  How do you feel about REALTORS who wear sexy clothes and have sexy pictures on the internet?

I want to tell them "Are you selling real estate, or your body, you Tramp"

4.  Do you take rejection personally, or is it just business?

Depends on who is doing the rejection

5.  Should I change the way I have loser spelled or does that work for our group?

You are talking Spelling Bee champion of St Pius X grammar school! Go for it

 Am I an army of one?

I'm a team of two me and my hubs, Roger. We like it that way, I like to run my own show, float my own boat. Plus I have some health issues and do not want the stress of having a team schedule. I am gregarious but like my own space. Can you relate?

Thanks for joining us Ginger

I am part of the Maureen Corps.... hey do you think I can start another group?

Ok.  I joined.   Now to see if I can hold my own amongst other misfits.

What ~I~ do when seeing a cute, young, perky prom queen type (besides wanting to throw up)  is wait for Miss Perky to leave, then call one of my good friends and describe the encounter in depth.  Kind of like two "birders" talking about a rare bird sighting.  :-)
