I think I figured out why we haven't sold our townhouse: Bad karma because of my attitude!  Case-in-point:

I worked last night, so I was DEAD asleep!  I quite frequently don't turn up the volume on my phone when I sleep days cause I DON'T WANT TO BE WOKEN UP!  Well, I guess our realtor called to see if someone could walk through this afternoon.  I didn't hear the phone ring.  The other guys' realtor called. Didn't hear the phone ring.  So they came and POUNDED (when I say pounded, I ain't kidding!  I though there was some kind of emergency for someone to be banging away like that..which is why I dragged my butt out of bed after FIVE minutes of ruckus..I usually ignore it.)  The real kicker: our realtor KNOWS I work nights, so he KNOWS if I don't answer the phone during the day there's a 99.99999% chance my backside is glued to my mattress.

And there they stood.

Them: Hi! You didn't answer your phone so we thought we'd just come over.  How are you?

The light dawns  as to who they are and what they want! *DING*

Me: (in a REALLY pissy tone) I was sleeping.
Them: Oh!  Do you want us to come back later?
Me: No.  I'm already awake. You can walk through now.  (I will admit I was being the most discourteous person at this point..I'm protective of my sleep when I have to be up at ungodly hours.)
Them: Ok.  Cool.  Thanks.

So they waltzed through, like they hadn't just destroyed my sanity while I sat on the couch and fumed in my robe, reading a Women's Health magazine article about stress & how sleep can affect it.  Really?

Them: Well thanks!  You have a beautiful home, even when it's not spotlessly cleaned!!??

I'm not kidding.  They said that.  And just so y'all house can never be considered that dirty, even when it's at its worst..I don't have kids to do that for me yet!

Me: *blank, pissy, stare*
Them: I'd love to show your place again..when is a good time?
Me: When I'm not sleeping. I answer my phone when I'm available to have the house walked through.

And out they went!

I know I was rude.  So were they.  I really couldn't care less.
