"Real germ" - The MLS Misspelling Plague

By
Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty BRE # 01362887

You can say toe-may-to, and I can say toe-mah-toe, but we both need to spell it properly unless we want to come off like morons, right? Well, you decide. The MLS apparently has come out with a new dictionary I didn’t know about: The MLS Garble Edition.

Read it and weep:

Now Trending…

"Real germ” (Uh, pet name for your ex?)

“Retaining wall shited” (You would, too, if you were hanging onto a California hillside during a 6.7 shaker.)

“Recently samblasted” (A description of my home after my Uncle Sam eats cabbage.)

“Won bedroom” (What one is left with after a Hollywood divorce.)

“Hat property” (You must be referring to those towers Princess Beatrice sports on her royal noggin.)

“Dog seltzer” (A popular beverage for dogs with hang-overs.)

You Say Tomato, I say…

“Minor carpeting” (Too young for shag?)

“Miner work needed” (The helmet with the light and the canary were a dead giveaway.)

“Pocked listing” (I hear Proactive is very effective for that.)

“New constriction” (Have you tried a Fleet enema?)

‘Roamin shades” (Is that like roamin’ black-outs when the electric company jacks us around?)

“Former home of famous tart” (Paris? Lindsey? Liberace?)

Auto-Fill Blooper of the Week

“For those with disturbing taste.” (Intoned my mother when I brought my ex home…)

Even Webster Didn’t Plan For This!

“Watch head, ponch hangs low ” (Maybe Ponch should invest in a jock strap…)

“New irritation” (That’s what happens when your ponch hits the pavement.)

Thanks to Patty DaSilva and Jane Peters for their hilarious contributions this week. That’s it, friends. I need to rest my shattered psyche now. Remember – Spell and Sell!

Patty, okay, I must capitulate to your intelligence. But how much fun would it be if I didn't rib you every now and then about JBJ and his love for me? Someone has to keep you on you dancin' toes. In the end, I will admit, George is my man...but I am willing to share. How 'bout you? Is there any reason we can't have two? :-)

Hum...

Gwen... you definitely gave me a lot to think about and though George is extremely handsome, nice and kind my heart belongs to Jon. I don't think I could share my heart with anyone one else (oh yeah, other than my husband).

Patty, I am sure Jon and, oh yeah, your hubby, appreciate your loyalty. George is heartbroken, but I will do my best to soothe his heart and keep him occupied. I'm that good a person...

Gwen,

We all have to make sacrifices in life and do things we don't want to. For you, that is spending time with George, how painful.

Patty, I'm glad you understand -  that's why I'm in therapy...
