Earlier this evening I was showing a rental listing of ours, a small one bedroom apartment. I met the tenant at 6pm. As per our instructions, I had confirmed with the tenant through our showing center, giving 24 hours notice for the showing.
When we arrived I knocked on the door, opened it up, and called out, "Hello!" Hearing no reply I went in with the prospective tenant.
First we looked at the kitchen and bath. We then went into the bedroom. I pointed out the large closet. But then I noticed something odd. A waxy looking hand sticking out of the closet, honestly I thought it was a prop of some sort. As I said, "Let's look in the closet," a voice called out from inside the closet!
"It's me, the tenant. I'm not dressed and I'm hiding in here until you're gone!"
The prospective tenant and I couldn't have gotten out of there any faster!
This is definitely a story to remember.
