We were sitting in the mortgage broker's office and when it came time to reveal our salaries, she remarked, "How is it that you have so much in savings when you have such little revenue?" As we explained our situation, I couldn't help thinking how backhanded the compliment was.
Then later when talk of padding the revenues came up, we expressed our discomfort with her suggestions. To which she replied, "I know, we are Quebecers and we have that upstanding catholic upbringing. But you know, if I had a couple of Jews in front of me, they would be doing WHATEVER needed to be done to get this deal. Because you know you guys have found an awesome deal."
There it was again, slanderous praise.
I can't speak for Jews (yet) but am looking forward to my conversion - maybe I'll have some more perspective then.
I would have smacked the taste out of that womans mouth, but that's just me.
That's just so classy.
Oh that's just disgusting. And "upstanding catholic upbringing"? bwahahahahahahahah
Hey, Torn and Spouse! Keep to the high road... and find yourself an agent with some integrity. she's pissed because she's losing her commission. don't be fooled. she's not doing this because it's an awesome deal for you.
That sucks. What a twat.
Oh she's just a model of cuddleiness, eh? What a bitch.
i'd write a letter to her boss, to her boss' boss and to the tippy top boss explaining just why i was leaving. then i'd go back there wearing a yamulka, holding a fistfull of cash and just smirk at her, a la julia roberts as pretty woman shopping in beverly hills: "big mistake. huge."
The first comment wouldn't have bugged me so much. The second, however would have resulted in my planting that ignorant piece of shit in no uncertain terms.
Wow, I'd walk out on that one, and complain LOUDLY about the racist bitch!
Where would she get such a crazy idea?
Wow. usually that kind of ugliness is hidden away; not right out there in the open.
Had a tax guy like this once, the whole wink, wink, nudge, nudge bit of "creative interpretation" of my finances.
But never with the racist comments.
Be glad she's not getting any of your commission, and move on.
(but I'm still sorry you didn't get the place.)
It all comes down to WWJD doesn't it? What would Jews do.
I had to read that story over twice...thought I was reading incorrectly. I'm with everyone else, I would have smacked her Quebecois mouth and said "Ferme donc ta câlisse de grande yeule sale mon ostie de tabarnack!"
Lemuel is right!?
Sounds like she went to the Mel Gibson School of Mortgage Brokers. What a douchebag!
I woulda said...."and I spose if we were str8....we'd be a waiting for you to pull out your murphy bed ya got rolled away in that wall"
Where did you find these agents. Because I want them next time I try and buy a house! (j/k) Sorry about all the drama.
I can't believe she said that out loud.
Doesn't she have an "inside voice" like the rest of us?
Yuck! She stands as just more evidence that Canada does not sit as far away from the U.S. on diversity issues as many would like to think.
The anti-Semitism aside, I am sorry about the property. Perhaps, though, the cosmos has something else in mind for you and spouse?
P.S. My Word Verification if efvcyvem. That seems a bit extreme to me. I am just sayin' cause I am almost guaranteed to make a mistake.
Sorry about you not getting the place.
But damn, meeting that classy mortgage broker was worth the effort, eh?
Are all Quebecers THAT good at backhanded compliments? Is this lass the exception or the rule?
The racism must be from the FRENCH side of Quebecois!
some people have no tact
I can't believe she said that!! Some people are just clueless.
And can you just imagine the wonderful things she would say behind your back, given the chance?
What she said was wrong in so very many ways!Deeply, deeply wrong.
I wondering exactly what she would do if she had a couple of Jews in front of her. I shudder to think.
Wow. Just, wow.
Wow. Are all mortgage brokers in Canada pigs? Aren't they supposed to be looking out for the bank?
Maybe it's a trick. A sly, sly trick.
I don't think C and I ever lied about any disclosure of that sort, and so our Karma is intact, and so is yours. Don't worry about it. There is always another piece of property around the corner and the next one will be easily obtainable (that's the final rule of real estate!)
Nice. Jesus would be so proud of her.
I say pad the damn income, unless you don't think you can make it work financially. You gotta play the game, I don't think it's bad karma, who exactly are you hurting? You have the money to make the payments, so I doubt the bank will care.
But then again, I'm not Catholic.
Wow...Paging Mel Gibson, paging Mel Gibson!
I'd totally go with her suggestion. If it can work for a jew it can work for yew!
thank her for me, i'm the JEW who told you to lie!
