From the Star Tribune in Minneapolis/St. Paul comes this juicy bit of news:
An attorney and his Lutheran pastor wife listed their home for sale with a Realtor and then ran off to London for a four month holiday.
Neighbors had noticed a light on in a bedroom and talked to the Realtor, who was in the house, and said he was getting ready for an open house the next day. The Realtor was seen leaving with another gentleman."While they were gone, they allege in a lawsuit filed last week, their real estate agent used their house and possessions for "unauthorized sexual escapades," staining their sheets, couch, carpet and other surfaces."
"A brown leather sofa, two nearby chairs and two end tables appeared to have been recently stained or soiled. A stairway rug was similarly soiled, as were the sheets in the master bedroom. Used towels were strewn around the bathroom. An open bottle of lotion was in the kitchen."The pastor's negligee was also soiled. ( Ewwww! Not sure which image is worse in my head - a member of the clergy in a negligee or a strange guy in her negligee.)
The real estate office spent $7,482 to cover the damages.
Now the couple can't stay in the home.
"Since returning home in June, the family has tried to sleep in the house but found they couldn't stomach it. Instead, they've stayed with friends and relatives and are closing on a new house next week."I'll bet they bought the new house from a different Realtor.
