This is like driving past your old house.
Oh man, this just feels so odd...

Realtor friend of mine tells a story about a couple that was totally into gardening and landscaping the house and yard. They spent years there, and finally decided to retire to a new condo. About six months after they sold the house, they drive by it and see the new owners tearing out a bunch of bushes and trees. The woman stops the car, gets out, and proceeds to start screaming at the owners for tearing out the bushes. The husband has to get out of the car and drag her back in--all the while reminding her it is not her house anymore.


This ain't my house anymore.

1. This happened to a woman I knew when I was cleaning houses.
Her husband died and she sold her house. The new owners took out the shag carpeting, the flowered drapes she had made, changed the heating system (she had radiators), totally changed the yard and repainted the outside.

I took her by the "old house", and she was really upset. She said...if they didn't like the house the way it was, why did they buy it?

I thought the new owners did a terrific job, but I didn't tell Katy that.
