It was spread across a quarter of the lab. I believe he was more concerned with the amount of chemicals I had in a close proximity. I assured him that they were perfectly safe, and that the fire was related to my Bunsen burner, the ring stand broke and it fell to the ground, but he wasn’t convinced.
Alright, I’ll talk to my mom just in case. You’re welcome.
Oh.. wow. I mean, at least you were luckily unharmed and that’s really what matters in the end. I don’t even know how I would have reacted to that. Sometimes Bryce tells me stories about things going wrong and I get a little scared for him. I’m sorry to hear you were evicted though.
Yes, okay. I’ll keep you both, or even Blake, on speed dial in case I get desperate.
I would have done it for food.
Well that would have been a hell of a lot cheaper.
Well, I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to selling houses but if your Realtor doesn’t work out then my mom may know someone who can assist you. I had a slight mishap in my lab and burned a hole in the carpet of my apartment, this was back when I was still in college, and she called this guy because my landlord was convinced that he was not going to be able to rent out the apartment anymore. Anyway, this guy comes in and throws a rug over the burn. Two days later he rents out the apartment.
It may have been better if I had been able to move out first, I wasn’t aware that you could get evicted for turning your bedroom into a laboratory. I was accused of being many things, Chemist was not one of them.
How big was the burn that you not only got evicted but also worried the landlord that he wouldn’t be able to sell the apartment? I don’t think I have anything wrong with the house that would cause any worries like that, not that I’m aware of at least, but I’ll still keep it in mind anyways if I become desperate. Thank you, Tori.
Well, I’d start with things that happened in the house. People like to hear stories, it doesn’t have to be a big deal but you could embellish your history in the house. It would make them want to have their own memories. It’s not just your stuff right? No one wants to look at a house that’s obviously still being lived in. It makes it seem like you’re too attached to leave.
And, um, price is a big thing. You should maybe dangle a higher price in front of them and then act like they’re the ones convincing you to lower it, don’t forget to tell them that others have offered a higher price.
Actually…. those aren’t that terrible of ideas. Maybe I should have hired you to sell my house instead of my realtor.
Are these “provisions” by the books? Because you’d probably have a better chance of selling your house if you were willing to think outside of the box, maybe exaggerate the truth a little bit. I could help you with that…
I guess they are.. sort of. I mean, I’m not really in charge and have mostly been letting her take over with the whole thing, since she’s the expert. I’ve been sort of just standing around and watching her, helping where I can. What would exaggerating the truth be? I don’t want to flat out fabricate everything to sell my house. That might not go over very well.
You could always ask someone to pretend to be an interested buyer so it seems in demand and brings more people in? I have no idea if it works though. I may have seen that happen on TV only.
At this point, I might just have to do that. Anything really to get this damn house sold already. I just want to get it sold, move in someplace new and be done with it already. I’m just tired of all this waiting around.
