The wait is over. I just got the call. I had the better offer but still did not get the townhouse.
I'm not a family.
Yes, that's their reason.
Pardon my french, but why the fuck didn't they put that on the damned listing instead of letting me waste hours today seeing the place (twice), comparing with two other places, and then doing that mountain of paperwork to assemble an offer (the higher offer, I might add) to meet their deadline?
It's a good thing I'm not gay. Or black. Or ... both.
This really pisses me off. There was a filter there all along, but I wasn't told about it until far too late in the process. I hope the new residents of 39 Starlite Court in Mountain View enjoy their place.
The search continues... But first, I need a drink or two.
