Why I Am Ashamed to Be a Realtor

Really, there are many reasons to be ashamed to be a Realtor right now. Most Realtors are undereducated and not particularly good at their jobs. In fact, in a survey of public trust, Realtors ranked right down there with used-car salespeople. And that's why I don't really work as a Realtor anymore. (Well, that and the fact that after my one big sale, I wasn't making any money.)

But here's yet another reason to be ashamed of Realtors. This was the headline of an email from the Pacific West Association of Realtors that showed up in my inbox recently:

"Your invited to participate in the Swinging for Education Golf Tournament"

I especially like the fact that the glaring grammatical error comes in a pitch for a fundraiser for education. Nice!
