Today I was out showing some property with a couple from out of town. We were on our 8th listing and they liked it. It was one of two that had made the short list.
We had parked in the lot next to each other in two unmarked spaces. When we went out, there was a minivan parked behind us blocking us both in. We waited patiently for a few minutes and then began to feel annoyed that we were blocked in.
Suddenly this women comes out of her townhouse yelling at us for taking her parking space. We tried to explain that we parked there because those spaces were unmarked and we thought that meant they were visitor spaces. She went on with her tirade about us taking her space because the number has been rubbed off and we should have known because it didn't say visitor. She proceeded to say that next time she would call the police.
In an attempt to difuse the situation I apologized to her for our mistake and asked her nicely if she would please move her vehicle so that we could leave. She told me she would move it when she felt like and then climbed into her vehicle closed the door and sat there.
Can you believe we had to call the police before this woman would move and let us out?
Needless to say, the buyer immediately struck that property off the short-list saying "I wouldn't live next to her if this was the last property on earth".
This sure was a great way to welcome them to the DC area!
