Do Tell, They Can’t Smell

A recent blog about the buyer who reeked of bourbon prompted this recollection from a colleague (he talked fast, but I’m certain I captured his story’s essence):

I was hired by a woman who is allergic to perfumes, and she asked me to travel to her home to sign the contract. That was a new one for me, but a buck’s a buck! Oh, yeah, and take a shower first, she said, and wear only clothes that have been washed with fragrance-free detergent.

OK, I can do this, but as a seller, she has to go where the money is for closing, and I couldn’t control who’d smell like what with all the people that could very well be there. So I suggested that maybe she wanted to give someone without a sensitive nose a Power of Attorney for the closing?

She said that she had a right to be at her own closing. I agreed, but didn’t want her to get sick. That’s when she said she’d send a list of requirements so I could share them with the buyers’ attorney before closing. You mean like when to shower and what to wear?  I can’t tell people at a bank firm to take a shower and buy no-smell detergent, and what if someone happens to come in off the street wearing Eau de Tide? Please, please give someone Power of Attorney!

   She fired me before she even really hired me. Some clients are not worth the stink!
