Earlier this week, I read:

To which I almost peed my pants over the post and recorded the word douchecanoe for future reference. -- Thank you caregiver9000!!

I am selling my home. New husband and I are consolidating everything and being that I am in the home I purchased with my ex, it was a pretty easy decision. We are all moving into his house. It's about 600 sq ft bigger, on a bigger lot and the bonus is the school system is way better! Win. Win. Win.

Anyhow.. I've had to painstakingly be showing my home to all potential buyers. Got one guy who is really interested - young guy about 25 who is doing this on his own. Hoping to propose to girlfriend and have all his ducks in a row. He's been here 4 times. Last night he called and asked if he could come by again (just buy the freaking house already!) with his uncle who wants to see it and make sure it works. They all show up and it's the know-it-all uncle. You know the type. He's being an ass the entire time and I keep shutting his idiotic requests down. No, I won't be finishing the basement to your specifications. In the end, the young guy tells me he's extremely interested and would be in touch with the realtor.

They all leave. I called the realtor to rehash and say "How about that Uncle Douchecanoe?! Talk about an ass!" yada yada yada

This morning I get a call from realtor. He wants to tell me that young guy would like to place an offer on the house. (YEAH!) But he's not happy with realtor referring to his uncle as Uncle Douchecanoe. uhmmmm???? Turns out realtor assumed Douchecanoe was his first name and was referring to him in such a manner!

OH. MY. GAWD. I had to explain it to him. Very slowly.

But I'm still getting the offer.

That is the FUNNIEST thing ever!!!!

I'm glad the guy is making an offer despite the "Douchecanoe"!!!

My SO calls his sister's xWH the douchecanoe; he's going to love this!

The young guy must have been laughing about it as well. He wouldn't have put in an offer if he was truly offended.

Too funny.

Realtor Not Very Bright, says Ogg!

Oh shut the front door! This is amazingly funny! Haha!

Yeay on the offer!

Well... To be perfectly fair to the realtor, this is a large family who is first generation to the U.S. They all have names not typical to Americans. Young guy included. So it really was plausible that realtor just assumed that to be his name. But young guy knew exactly what the joke was about. LOL
