I don't want to work... I want to bang on the drum all day.

By
Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

It's Saturday.

I had a ten o'clock appointment with a new client this morning.  It was a nice meeting, and went well.  Now I'm going to go meet my mother, and my sister for lunch at our usual hangout... and take the rest of the day off.

I have no showings, no listings to check on, no brochures to create.  No offers to negotiate (that's a damn shame), no fires to put out, no lockboxes to put on/take off, no faxes to send, no emails to answer, no jammed lockboxes to unjam...

That's right, folks... I ain't got nothin' to do for the rest of the day.  How many times a year does THAT come around?

Woo hoo!  See ya 'round the office!

I feel so frustrated, the boss is a Jerk
(hey, wait a minute... I'M the boss!)

Doug - I think it is, too.

Rose - I sure did.

Tom - I didn't see no Santa Claus.

Liz & Bill - it's very rare, and most welcome.

Dianne - I find myself working even from out of town... I'm on the phone all the time.

Kathryn - there are worse songs to get stuck in your head.

Sheila - sometimes it's nice to just sit in the bleachers and enjoy a hot dog.

Alan....one of my favorite songs to sing! I hope you enjoyed your day off. I played hooky today with my mother.

Alan -- so did you get to spend time with your mother both Saturday and Sunday this weekend?  She must have really appreciated that attention.
