In which Primo tries to figure out how not to be Sly

Primo: The realtor put up the listing.

Me: I know! I saw it. He has done a great job cleaning the house and the yard. It looks really nice.

Primo: He has put in a lot of work.

Me: So of course you should do as Ted advised and cut back his commission. Because you know - there is no work involved in selling a house.

Primo: Nope.

Me: Ted. Pah. I spit on him.

Primo: How should I handle this? The realtor is such a nice, hardworking guy, but his grammar is pretty bad. There are some mistakes in the listing.

Me: That are visible to the public?

Primo: Yes.

Me: What if you would say, "Hey realtor! The listing looks great! You have done such a good job with the yard and the house. I noticed there are a few typos - I have corrected them here. Would you make the corrections on the listing?"

Primo: You mean instead of saying, "Wow you must be a stupid unworthy person because your written English is not perfect?"

Me: Yeah.
