I'm going to take Legal Action...complained the Caller

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

  The phone rang with an irate caller "You MUST remove my wife's name from your Facebook page immediately or I am going to take legal action !"  shouted Facebookthe caller....
  "What IS your wife's name ? " I asked politely....
   "Mildred Guberschmidt (not her real name)..and right on the top of your business page it says she LIKES you and she doesn't even KNOW you."  

 "Well....let me look..." as I clicked to our business page...."Sorry Mr. Guberschmidt....I don't see that on the page I am looking at..."  "YOU must have put it there..." his voice pitching higher and speech faster...

    "No...I don't know your wife and I didn't put it there...I can't even see her name on the page..." "It's RIGHT there and if you don't remove it right now...I am going to call a lawyer."    

     "I can't remove something I didn't put there...and can't see. Sir," I tried explaining.  
   "Then call Facebook and tell them to remove it immediately ! Our house is paid for and we aren't moving !"remove facebook

    No amount of explaining ....or telling him that his wife's account could have been hacked was any consolation as he continued with his legal threats. 

       I told him I had to leave for an appointmeent with someone who DOES like us....and there was nothing I could do to solve his problem.

      Sadly, there may be a lawyer out there somewhere who will volunteer to take on the case of the invisible name....sigh....We'll let you know when we get the summons and complaint !

       If you would LIKE to LIKE our facebook page...please click here   and welll....if you don't ....you don't have to call and tell us about it.

    This has been a cheerful social media post from your always cheerful southeastern Wisconsin Associate Brokers with Keller Williams Realty, 

Sally K.  & David L. Hanson honored to be of service...except for "erasing" things we didn't post.

Coming to think of it, I bet I have already liked your site.

But I'm so upset I think I'll still take legal action.

Some people just don't get it, I doubt that anything would come from you getting sued by this idiot, haha.  If anything, Facebook would have to get involved.

OMG, I literally laughed out loud, Sally! Only you, Sis! And, Jay Markanich's comment...you two are hilarious!

And, I'm curious who is going to take his money to solve this - you KNOW there's someone who will!

BTW, liked your page long ago and don't see Mrs. Guberschmidt anywhere there! LOL

Sally, Too much with all the stuff going on out there.  How can you remove someone who isn't thee?  Doesn't'make sense.

This reminds me of the time we sent out just listed cards and someone got mad. He called in the evening and told our answering machine all about it - with some pretty "salty" language. He demanded that he be taken off our mailing list.

Trouble is - he didn't tell us his name.

I've been noting just how many people seem "angry" these days, Sally K. & David L. Hanson.  I think they just go looking for something to justify what they're feeling.  Thus your phone call.

Don't think I'd lose sleep over it ...

HAHAHAHHA, this reminds me of an ancient post Jay Thompson wrote about some goof AGENT calling to threaten him about 'manipulating The Google' when he kept placing so high in search results.
