I am a woman who loves men. I had a wonderful Father. I had wonderful Uncles who played very important roles in my upbringing. There were the Doctor, The Hunter, and the Farmer from my Dad’s side. There were my Mother’s five brothers from North Georgia who defy description, but had hearts twice the normal size. There are my three brothers who are some of my favorite people in the whole world and there is my boyfriend who cooks and cleans for me and loves to dance.
Perhaps it is because I have been blessed with so many good men that I despise men who treat women like idiots. I have been dealing with one for a week now who is the seller of a house that I was interested in buying. He has thrown every “you are a stupid woman and will do what I say” trick in the book at me and each time I have thrown my intelligence back at him. Guess what, Mr. _____? I am not only intelligent but spent 6 years of my life selling real estate. Technically, the offer was void when instead of answering my counter-offer on Saturday, you chose to advise me on whom to see for a mortgage and said you would check back with your Realtor on Monday.
Today, it gave me great pleasure in withdrawing my offer to purchase for no other reason than I will no longer have to waste one more thought on your stupidity. Cutting off my nose to spite my face, you say? Not at all because his attitude ultimately made the home look less attractive. If he lived there, and I am assuming he did, my excitement about the house would eventually be poisoned by his leftover vibage.
Ah, it has been a good day in the life of me.
