The Monday Peeve 5

The Monday Peeve Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the #TMP tag, and link back to me (or not ~ I dgaf), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen! I have feelings!

Here we go then with today’s…

Teasers are fun in novels and film, but in real life? State the price upfront for God’s sake already! I can’t believe how ridiculous people are and how much of everyone’s time, including their own, they continually squander.

Forex, I’ve been apartment hunting off and on. Most landlords grok that location and price are the key factors, so they state them immediately. But there are still some that say “call for price.” Um no. Put it in the ad, or forget it. What, they think people will be so enticed by new paint or whatever that they’ll forget their budget. Omg honey, look, a cute patio! Let’s spend $500 more per month we don’t have!

So dumb. I emailed one guy on Nextdoor to ask for deets and he replied which? So I said price (and everything else). He wrote a long-winded message about All The Things, putting price last. Ya know… he could have put price in his initial message and saved us both the bother. Price isn’t a secret. You don’t have to be ashamed of what you’re asking for rent.

Well… if you are embarrassed, maybe you should reconsider that number, hah.

  1. That’s really quite ridiculous. What’s to be gained by hiding the price?

  2. When I was in sales I told the customers the price up front. 💖

  4. Wow, that guy wasn’t too swift. What’s the deal with not entering the cost of the rent in an article? If I don’t see a price on something, anything… Ah, Buh-bye” Some people are just out there.

  6. I’d honestly wonder what was wrong with the apartment after that…

  7. My Mondays are actually Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday are my days off. So while everyone is working I’m home, and when everyone is going out Friday I’m at work. Kinda sucks, so I get how you feel.
