All estate agents are brainless


Here's an excerpt from a letter we received:

“We are currently carrying out a board campaign in your area and would appreciate your assistance. A 'Let By' board will be erected at the above property from 15th June 2004 for 3 weeks.”

Now that's all well and good. I don't have any objection to that. But is it worth me pointing out to them that we live in a small cul-de-sac which gets no passing traffic — literally, none — and so this exercise is ever so slightly pointless? Or are they just trying to advertise to our immediate neighbours?

Either way, my opinion of estate agents just sank a little lower.
