No, sorry, I have pockets. English is by far not my first language. When I did go to Real Estate school to get my Maui Real Estate license, it was like “using English to learn yet another language”. All these legal terms, for example ‘Eminant Domain‘, they were simply not in my personal repertoire. I had to study. I had to study hard!
For one or the other reason there are things that you simply do not want to learn. Almost feels like you have some kind of ‘blocked thoughts’ on it. Know that feeling? Well, it happens. I never really understood the term of a “Pocket Listing”. But I enjoy using these tech tools such as an online Dictionary. And here are my findings:
Pocket: noun, a small bag sewn into or on clothing so as to form part of it, used for carrying small articles.
Listing: another noun, a set of items considered as being in the same category or having a particular order of priority.
As a Maui Real Estate Agent, that did not really get me any further. So I decided to check out something else that somewhat helped me ‘translating’ difficult word combinations in the past. And that works for pretty much any language. I know that for sure.
Metaphor: noun, a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.
Yeah, now we are talking. I really love that. Specially on Maui. It’s warm here every day and our shorts don’t have that many pockets. We can only use them for business cards, cell phones and maybe some keys. Be sure to find out what your Realtor has in his pockets. It’s good to be prepared.
The biggest shock is that the term Pocket Listing is actually explained on Wikipedia.org. Amazing. Now I got you all confused. Great. Just what I wanted: sit back and enjoy the following slide show. Call me if you have any further questions. Aloha from Maui!
