Racing down the road at 88 in a 55 Mile an Hour Zone! Oh my!

Racing down the road at 88 in a 55 Mile an Hour Zone! Oh my!

While showing homes to a client couple, we left one community to head to another. There was a long stretch of road before us that eventually turned uphill and suddenly the car was racing at 88 miles per hour in a 55 speed zone! As I shot into panic mode, I’m thinking how can I slow this car down safely without  alarming my clients and bringing too much attention to myself?!!! Ohhhhh, noooo! Here we go!

They were deep in conversation about the last 3 homes, comparing one to the other and not paying attention to the high rate of speed the car was approaching...I was f-r-e-a-k-i-n-g  o-u-t! Sure that my armpits were soaked with sweat as we continued down the road...screaming on the inside...THINK Wanda THINK! I started messing with the buttons on the dash...and realized that I had accidentally pushed the miles per hour button when I first got into the car, changing it to kilometers per hour!

I was only going 55 miles per hour, not 88, until I slowed to 34 miles an hour which is actually 55 kilometers an hour.  And just then my client asked, why are we going so slow, is there a problem?!!! “No, no problem.” As my heart was fiercely pounding against my chest...”I just need to pull over for a moment to check our paperwork on the next property...” I told them afterwards what happened and they got a good laugh out of it and told them they could call me WanDUH!

Moral of the story...Never, ever let ‘em see you sweat!

That sounds like something I would've done.  I would've needed a breather too.
