Confusional Consequences!

So its house hunting time, yet again. And this time, Husbd has carefully said, "its your choice"! Well, I didn't feel flattered, as that was just a tactful way of saying that he's too busy to take the strain of house hunting.

I got my details and requirements registered with every other letting agency that I came across. This way, I wouldn't be missing out on any suitable property, I thought. I didn't spare the few websites where you get email alerts on rental properties as well. So I was happy that I've taken the first step in a very organised fashion. O N L Y , I didn't make a list of whom I've contacted. That wouldn't have mattered much.. B U T, I realised that the requirements which I've given to some have been inconsistent and contradictory.. that also would have been sorted out, U N T I L, this guy called up my husbd's mobile and asked him if we'd like to view a one bed apmt for £900.. husbd has said that's beyond our budget for a one bed apmt, and the guy has said your wife said its fine as long as its near the shops and tube station. Would I have said that? Well, I may have!

What was more interesting was this conversation over the phone:
Me: Hi there! I have an appointment to view properties this Saturday at 10 in the morning. D'ya think I could come in today instead?
Agt:I'm sorry, but we haven't booked any appmts on Saturday. Whom did you speak to earlier?
Me:I didn't get her name.
Agt: Was it Dan?
Me:Sorry, I didn't get her name at all.
Agt:Wait. You said its a she?
Me:yeah, it was a lady that I spoke to.
Agt:Guess you've called the wrong company. We've never hired women at all in this company.
I could only be thankful that I didn't indeed go in person. Spared the strain of picking my jaw from the floor.
I racked my brains. I already had to keep the 12 noon appmt on Saturday with another company as well. Although I had not taken her name, I remember jotting down the address. So I sought dear mr. google's help yet again. A N D, I stared at what I saw on the screen for a sec and laughed out loud. As it appeared it was the same company which I was to make it at noon time. I had double booked! I'm just over worked you see ;)
BTW, this is what happens when you T H I N K you're clicking, whereas all the while you've been video-ing :D

Hehe. You know I do that all the time with my camera. Then I click too fast and get the focus fuzzy.

You know, you over rely on computers, time to get the trusty pen and paper out girl, or you will never find a house.

hahahaha....this is so funny! man I wish i could give you some advice...but i am totally like you.

Infact when we were looking for an apt...i tried , but ultimately it came to hubby to actually locate the apt that we are living in now :)

As for the pen and paper idea...i would so totally loose the paper when I really need it :)

Bedazz-lol, interesting idea.. wish I cld hv one at times!

Av-I hve exactly 4 video clippings shot unknowingly. oh ur right abt pen n paper. I used to be organised prior to relying on tech.and I'm not tht tech savvy either.

Smit-girl you're clairvoyant. i did re-read shopah lately, as had no other bk in hand. seriously, things are in a mess now:)

Angel-lol, this mrng, i transferred the reponsibility back to husbd. seriously,these days whatever I venture is ending up in confusion.. seriously!

Smita said...

hehe I had to google the meaning of the word :D

Well somehow I cud sense it!!! You know yesterday i did a Becky!! I was travelling with two ladies and they were talking about a wonderful Dermatologist that they had discovered lately. They wer praising her to a hilt and i was thinking "Ah!! if the lady is so nice and these ppl are praising her so much then even I shud vist her" But you know I remembered something important, I don't really have a prob to show to this lady and then i was so disappointed :D

Bouncing-Bubble said...

Smitu-lol. girl u rock! but NOTHING is as funny as doing a BEcky, seriously!

CP-sigh. this house hunting is esply tricky when the husbd is super busy at office. every other fella out there's got my no. now. hope something clicks soon. and then I'll strt sulking abt packing uff!
