Still getting swamped with calls...

Had someone whose husband works for BCBS and who's self-employed. Their budget could handle a 2-bedroom, maybe a small 3-bed. They're expecting later this summer.

"And how many animals?"

"None."

I tell her about different options I have coming open that fit the information she's given me, and tell her to fill out an application for preapproval.

I go wander off to my desk to find something, and pop onto FB for a few minutes. I see I had a FB message from the same individual; she had contacted me last year looking for a place. I click through to her wall to see what kind of self-employment she does. (She keeps a stall at the local hair salon, it seems.)

Her FB page is swamped with photos of her current litter of French bulldog puppies. Her FB page is swamped with memes about "don't call my Frenchies pugs" and "101 Dalmatians gave me an unrealistic idea as to how many dogs I can keep" and stuff like that.

Auughhhhhh.

Thank you, FB.

Thank you, prospects... --96.46.xxx.xx

Those little Frenchies are not friendly. Saw one at the vet and it got pissed off because I was looking at it. No and no. --173.61.xxx.xx

Great job pre-screening! FB is an awesome tool I have used to find multiple "interesting" facts that will never make it on an application. --173.20.xxx.xxx

In Los Angeles it used to be a total of 3 animals. But since there are so many animals in shelters, the city raised the limits. Now someone can have 4 to 5 animals depending on the type, cats, dogs or both.

My applicants can't even clean their shoes before they walk into my rental, how do I expect them to clean up after their pets? --47.156.xx.xx

Robert J,

Do you have to allow animals and if so do you have to allow that many? --73.120.xx.xxx

Nice catch! My favorite was the lady with no pets, whose FB page showed a cat and a parrot that was allowed to fly around the house - and an ad for her pet-sitting service: "Your home or mine." --71.175.xxx.xx
