For the love of God, someone just buy my house already

Sam Mafito

Okay, I’m about freak out here people. I’ve got a 5-bedroom/3-bath stucco house that I’m trying to sell and I admit I’m starting to go a little nuts here.

I’ve got an ARM sucking me dry. I had to sell my car and I swear my wife is shacking up with our Realtor®, so for the love of God, BUY MY HOUSE!

I’ll throw in a dog. I’ve got a nice dog. Chow-Collie mix, house-trained. Re-name it whatever you want. I’ll mow your lawn for a whole year, swear to God. I’ll babysit your kids.

Hell, you want a kid? I can get you a kid. Nothing goes with a nice new house like a brand new kid! I got a boy or a girl. Just tell me what you want.

I’ll wash and wax your car. Folks, I’m dying here, dying. I’ve got a $4,300 monthly mortgage payment that’s got me sweating bullets. SO JUST BUY MY FREAKING HOUSE NOW! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!

Okay … okay, I’m sorry I lost it a little there. It’s okay. You’re right, there are several open houses you could be at right now and you chose mine. I apologize. Let me show you guys the basement.

Sure, I got the mortgage through a cousin of mine and lied a little about my income, like maybe that I had some, but still, who doesn’t lie a little about their income or that they didn’t “graduate” from college so much as get “kicked out for selling mushrooms.” But I mean, come on! Why don’t you want my house?

It’s a good house. The five months I lived here were very special. Those other houses are cheap. Look at them. Right out the window there. Pathetic.

You want quality? I’ve got quality. Mine’s better than all the others. Look at all those people driving by my “For Sale” sign. Don’t just drive by. Stop. Get out of your car, walk into my living room and smell the new carpet. Come on people!

For God’s sakes, will someone just BUY MY FREAKING HOUSE!

Do you feel bad about speaking up for yourself? So do a lot of folks, it’s no big deal. Why are you always demanding everyone’s attention be focused on you? Why can’t you just take care of things and keep this household running, huh? Look, your mom got married too early. And papa was a rolling stone —she knew that going in. Her eyes were wide open. She was a party girl, fun, flirty and he was a stressed-out cat with a family history of alcoholism. Sure, they liked to have a good time, who doesn’t? Oh, not you — there you were, like a bump on a log in your high-chair. You’re all grown up now, but you can come on Monday. Bring your parents if they’re still around — they sound fun.
