I stopped at the Countrywide office this morning a few minutes before it opened. I got out my camera and started taking pictures through the front window into the lobby.
A thirty-ish Countrywide employee on her way into the office approached hostilely.
Hostile Countrywide employee: “May I help you?”
Me: “No thanks, just taking pictures.”
Hostile Countrywide employee: “Of WHAT?”
Me: “That ‘No Cash in Office’ sign. It’s kind of funny, you know, ‘cause they’re going bankrupt.”
Hostile Countrywide employee: “It’s not going bankrupt. I work here.”
Me: “Sorry to hear that.”
In retrospect, it would have been even funnier if I’d used the line suggested by co-blogger Negocios Loucos: “I’m with CB Commercial and we’re going to be leasing this place out. Just taking a few pictures.”
That's an understatement!
