The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is The Adler Team ReMax Realty of Fort Lauderdale Florida. They get the award for the following.
PORT ST. LUCIE — Selling your house without an agent might give you a headache, but the marketing ploy of one real estate agent prompted a house call from five fire and rescue trucks after crushed aspirin fell from an envelope Thursday, police said.With all the recent scares about powder found at businesses and courthouses that cause their shutdown, what kind of fools mail aspirin through the mail as a sales pitch? An imbecile or Knucklehead of course and that makes you The Adler Team ReMax Realty of Fort Lauderdale Florida today's Knucklehead of the Day.
Iyke Okafor, 24, of Caligula Avenue called 911 after he opened an envelope and got white powder on his hands, reports said. Five vehicles from the St. Lucie County Fire District responded, washed down Okafor and quarantined the suspicious powder in a metal can.
Upon closer inspection, police discovered the letter was a sales pitch from The Adler Team ReMax Realty in Fort Lauderdale, whose employees admitted sending about 10 letters with aspirin and bandages to property owners selling without a real estate agent.
"Got a headache dealing with Realtors? Take two of these and call Christine in the morning," the letter read.
The metal can was taken to the St. Lucie Health Department and was scheduled to go to a lab in Miami for analysis, reports stated.
Employees apologized for the mix-up and promised to stop mailing aspirin.
