Modern Technology, It Doesn't Always Replace the Old Stuff!


Newspaper Is Old TechnologyI was visiting my son and daughter-in-law last night
when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

''This is the 21st century Dad" he said.
"We don't waste money on newspapers anymore.
Here, you can borrow my iPad.''

I can tell you, that bloody fly never knew what hit him.....


                           Sometimes New Technology just can't replace the Old!

                                       Ipad Flyswatter New Technology Doesnt Always Replace The Old

Whether you are into the new technology or the old I can and will cater to your needs.  Do you still like the idea of physically signing a contract? No problem!  Would you rather digitally sign and have an electronic copy? No problem!  Do you like reading MLS data on paper or prefer it on your computer, iPad or the like?  No problem we have you covered.  Either way is just fine because we realize Modern Technology doesn’t always replace the old stuff.  

Give us a call we welcome the opportunity to get to know you and do business together!

Very cute....I actually had to go to the Dollar Store to get some fly swatters - they keep disappearing from when I used them LAST!

Cracking us up as always John!  Sometimes there is nothing like holding and reading a newspaper.  I still love the smell of it.

Good morning John. Hilarious. Just last week after spendingtwenty minutes on the internet searching for a buyers address my wife walks by and says did you look in the phone book? I said "the what?". Sure enough listing big as life in the old phone book. Maybe print isn't dead.

John- You made me LOL with this one, too funny! I think you've got to know what right tool to get the job done. It's great that you offer options for clients too. I find some are just more comfy with wet signatures and that's fine by me!

John,  It is funny how the younger generation doesn't go for newspapers.  My husband has a tizzy fit if his newspaper isn't in the drive each monring.

John - I got a great laugh out of this one.  I know you too well to have sacrificed that i-pad, but you'd made a great point, old or new technology, you can work in either medium.  Great post!

I still read the newspaper every morning and I don't own an iPad.  Maybe that is why everyone refers to be as "Cave Boy"!

john,

Dude now that is really funny. Personally, I really like an old fashinioned newspaper to read in the morning and I really do not like internet news sites very much.
