Rebuffed, Over Buff

On line at the post office, I spotted a man I’d chatted with after a seminar I taught for buyers. He had mentioned then that he’d be paying cash for a house, so when we met up recently, I asked him, “Have you made some seller deliriously happy yet?”

 

“Funny you should ask. I just withdrew an offer on a house because the seller refused to repaint the whole house before closing.”  

 

Making conversation, I commented that buyers usually did that sort of work after they closed.

 

He winked at me and said, “I know, but I changed my mind about the house and didn’t want to hurt the sellers’ feelings. So I said my wife thought the walls weren’t ecru enough.”

 

I’m sure the sellers felt so much better after that rejection!
