You've Got Mail!

I had a deal many years ago where the sellers and the buyers seemed to detest each other, and were most unpleasant at closing. As I represented the buyers, I was semi-pleased to hear from them about a decade later. They were selling the house, and wondered, “Do you remember us?” “Oh, yes!” was my answer.

The former buyers knew why I remembered, as they had had the “worst sellers in the world.” I concurred that they were indeed nasty, but the buyers said that there was more  to the story than had assaulted my eardrums at the closing.

It seems that the sellers left every toilet in the house unflushed when they departed, presenting my clients with a malodorous housewarming gift. “Oh, gross!” I exclaimed.

Since it was sellers’ property, and they felt obligated to return what was not rightfully theirs, the buyers filled up a Ziploc bag, placed it in a box, il_570xN.335771387 and sent it off to the sellers with a “You forgot this!” note.

Wow, that was pretty revolting. “Did that make you feel better?” I asked, sounding like a therapist.

They admitted that on reflection, what they did was very childish. So when they shared the story with the sellers’ former neighbors, they stopped at the part where the toilets were left filled with excrement.

“We figure they’ll never dispute the story,” they said. I tend to agree.
