101 in 1001 #95

So I got into work this morning to discover that I'd received an email from the real estate agent after I left on Friday. I've been dealing with this moron for six weeks now, and every time I get something from him, it makes me want to tear my hair out. To sum up, here's how our emails have gone:
Me: Hello real estate agent. We got your letter saying that you're putting the rent up. It won't actually affect us as we're both moving interstate, so will be vacating the premises on 14/7. Can you please send us details of what we need to do as regards moving out?
Real estate agent: Okay, cool. I'll claim I'm going to send you a vacate pack and then do nothing.
Me: Um, we never got the pack, can you send another one?
REA: Sure! Only I'll claim to send it and do nothing again. MWAHAHAHA!!!!
Me: Dude. This is fucking ridiculous. We're moving out in A WEEK. If you're not going to send it to me like you've promised, can you at least EMAIL me the fucking pack???
REA: Sure, why didn't you say so?
Me: Okay, so you know how the letter you reckon you sent 6 weeks ago includes the date for the final inspection? Yeah. The carpets won't have been cleaned by then. So you can either do the inspection without the carpets having been cleaned or you can do it at the end of the day instead.
REA: We don't have any spots at the end of the day. And we can't do the inspection without the carpets having been cleaned. So you'll have to pay $65 in rent because you're not vacating until the Friday. We'll do the inspection at 10.30 on Friday.
Me: I have no energy left to deal with your shit. I'll pay the stupid $65, even though the property will be vacant and I'll be giving the keys back first thing in the morning. But I'm driving to Melbourne that day, so 10.30 is a really crappy time for the inspection. Make it earlier, you poopy head. [<-- my lack of energy apparently extends to coming up with decent insults, even if I'm only delivering them in my head]
REA: How's 9.30?
Me: Whatever. I hate you. And if you quibble about things not being 100% clean, I WILL stab you in the face...

Okay, that last bit I just thought really loudly in the hopes that he'd pick up on it. God, I hate Canberra... And real estate agents... And Canberra real estate agents...

So there you have it - 101 of my favourite songs. And compiling this successfully took my mind off the moronic real estate agent for a while - success! 2 tasks down, 99 to go...

K xx


  1. Gee, that real estate agent better not be late ...

  2. Jaaaaaaason De-ruuuuuuloooooooow! Hehe. Turns out that I have to take responsibility for a lot of those on the list and you're welcome!

    Here are the ones that you have me to thank for 2, 4, 27, 31 (my song!), 37, 66 , 70, 72, 84 and 101 plus all the ones by Scouting for Girls and the Wicked ones because I made you take me!

    Journey, Meatloaf and Belinda Carlisle have nothing to do with me...ever!

    Hehe keep your chin up chuck, not long and you'll be out of there!!!!


  3. Real estate agents can seriously kiss my ass, I HATE THEM. My sympathies for your ordeal so far..

    And, for the record, I wholeheartedly approve of the number of 90's hits on your list. Yay!

  4. OH MY GOD real estate agents are horrible people. I recently was looking for places in melbourne and it was HORRIBLE.

    nice work on getting your 101 list started and your second thing accomplished, that's awesome.

  5. @Kelly - seriously, if he's late I WILL go stabby on him...
    @Sara - There was a frightening amount of stuff on that list that you're responsible for!! I'll convert you to the rest of it eventually. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    @Bi - I loves me some crappy 90s music! Almost as much as I loves me some crappy 80s music...
    @Deidre - it's like the most incompetent people on the planet all have a desire to become real estate agents, it really is.

  6. Property managers are just losers who can't sell houses. It seems they're lacking a little in the charasmatic personality department. And as for a move from Canberra to Melbourne... Respect! :)

  7. It should have been "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" by Meatloaf. C'mon now!

  8. I *LOVE* your list - I think around 75% of them would make my top 1000 (if not tunes, definitely the bands)!
    Come on Eileen!?! Brilliance! Also, Me First and the Gimme Gimme's make my heart beat to their drum.

    I totally hear you about real estate agents - we're leaving our place next weekend (for a place we've bought! yay!) but the real estate agent sent us a breach notice for malicious damage because one of the blinds has a crease in it now. seriously.

    I can't wait for this moving nightmare to be over!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
