In our hunt for a house we have a lot of viewings. Sometimes the real estate agent has a key. Sometimes the owner or tenant are in the house and open the door for us.
What is interesting in the latter case is that always, always, the television is on. Sometimes muted, sometimes blaring.
And we always have the viewings during daytime, mind you.
It’s probably a custom they copied from the restaurants. Or could it be the other way around?
