And The Heck With SEO, Enjoy The Comments..

 

It is time to write Localism posts for SEO, thanks to Bob's encouragement.  Yesterday when I left my box of keys in the other car and could not reach Lee to meet up and retrieve them, I had to change my schedule. When I did speak with him, he told me the container of keys were on the roof of my car!!!

Oh no!!!! 

                                                                   OH NO!

 

Having left home for the gym at 6:30 am, it was now 12 hours later. Driving with Lee, we traced my early morning route, very slowly.

 It was four blocks from my house, two turns later, on the busy main street in rush hour traffic, that I see the first bit of metallic shine and a colorful tag. Yep I found my keys or what remained of them. They were strewn gutter to gutter across the street and for most of the entire block.

Not one was left UNdamaged.. they were either bent or broken ...and what was a garage door opener was reduced to a couple of pieces of plastic. The blue accordion file box was mangled past recognition. 

Relief at finding them was exciting. Being in the middle of the busy road picking up the pieces was not as scary as the thought of losing them. I collected the bits and pieces and laid them all down. Most of the tags were all there but no longer attached to any of the keys.

Lee asked what happens next. My response, since I Don't Do Upset,

                                    " For sure I have tonight's blog." 

Then I started calling my sellers for replacement keys and to ask  Which Key Is Yours?

Oh my goodness! The good news is you are as great as ever. I remember leaving a cup of coffee on the roof of the car the minute it spilled down the windshield. Of course, keys are different. What is amazing is you back tracked hours to find them demonstrating once again your dedication to our profession and your clients!

Wow, that is a bad dream come true, good thing your sellers are understanding and you can replace all of those keys! (Plus you made a good post out of it)!

Margaret- just came upon your post while checkin out this group.  And, when I leave here I'm headed to your "I Don't Do Upset."  I don't normally do this but I'm leaving a link to a post I wrote about my similar experience. Clearly my loss would have been nothing compared to yours.
