One of my Propeties is at the top of a high hill. Leasing consultant was driving a golf cart (no one else in
it) and as she took a corner, wind caught the cart at just the correct moment and tipped it over. Her foot ended up caught under it. She was out several weeks with a foot injury.

I had three body builder type guys on the golf cart and one of them jumped off the back fell on the ground and made me think my driving made him fall out. Scared me. They laughed and leased a three bedroom.

My other story is a manager at a different location was driving a golf cart and when she parked it, she didn’t secure it. It rolled into her personal car and damaged it. She wanted the company to pay to fix her car.

Popped a prospect off the back of mine once. Went over a speed bump up a hill, she was too busy taking selfies to hang on I guess ???? her friend laughed at her and I had to try so hard not to. She was ok!

I came REALLY close once with three prospects. Weight was not “evenly distributed”... took a turn and had it on two wheels... all of a sudden we’re screaming in unison “LEAN LEFT, LEAN LEFT”!! I felt so bad and the whole time I’m thinking... how in the world do I go back to the office and explain why/how I tipped a cart

Back in the day...25 years ago we turned this property around from drugs dealers to police and fire as residents. The police cars were prolific during the day as they would stop by for lunch, restrooms etc.
One day I look out and see 2 golf carts fly by at excessive speeds. I grab my keys and radio thinking fire... I got outside to find the streets blocked off by police cruisers, maintenance taking turns racing the golf carts with winners racing next contestant and the police monitoring best speed with the radar gun.

Driving the golf car with prospect next to me and has her kid in the middle between us, as I am coming to a stop to park, kid decided to stomp his foot down on gas petal and we hit a car in front of us (parked). Minimal damages thankfully but safe to say they didn’t lease or return my follow up calls

I’ve had several take them for joyrides while we were showing units. One time a tech left the keys in and some kids drove it into a ditch.

We had a housekeeper leave the key in after several warnings not to and a kid took it for a joy ride. The kid hit several parked cars and then flew out after hitting a tree. Parents started yelling at me when I politely informed her that we could call the police as her kid stole the golf cart, grey area for sure as the key was left in but she backed down. Housekeeper was fired next day!

I was 27 and pregnant with my second daughter that was born on January 12, 1990. We went to judge the Christmas decorating contest on the golf cart. I was on the back seat and as we went over the speed bump I fell off and rolled like a weevil.

I overhear there story. “Those bastards waking us up with jack hammers and roofers at 7AM...”. One say to other “I can’t believe those idiots left the keys in the golf cart...” The one of three howls “... I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DROVE THE GOLF CART IN TO PHUKING POOL...”
I spit my beer out and asked “So where do y’all live...” Yeah, that’s right - it was my property... I bought them a round of drinks, told them I was one of the owners and then I left.

I was once driving across property to deliver notices and it was so cold. As I was rounding a corner, the golf cart went one way and I went the other. Cold weather and slacks do not mix well. Slid right off the seat, landed on my feet and began chasing after the runaway golf cart! Fortunately, nobody saw! Haha

Told maintenance team to never never leave their gauges, tools , or work orders and keys on the golf cart !!! Three days later one of them did all of this and I saw the golf cart parked in front of a bldg while walking property. I proceeded to take every single thing off of the cart and store it in a vacant unit!! Took the one at fault 3 days to tell me about it, needless to say it NEVER happened again

Had a prospect tell me I didn't park it right so when I got out he hit the acceleration pad and hit a residents motorcycle. He didn't even help pick the motorcycle back up. The joke was on him cause I had all his info and gave to the resident. Another time, another property the maintenance super did not believe that the battery wasn't holding a charge the cart died with prospects in it and we had to trek it back in the snow, same property 2nd golf cart breaks didn't, work again the super didn't believe me LUCKILY no one got hurt but if the wheel didn't come off we would not have stopped and crashed! I have never had so many golf cart issues than when I worked for that company! I was thrown off twice, (once in my first trimester), off the dang cart because maintenance liked going faster than they should.

Rainy Saturday, prospect sitting beside me in front, locator (agent) in back. Had to “punch it” going up a hill. Locator went flying!!! Hit her bum on the foot part, then landed smack on her bum on the street! Thankfully she was not injured, but a favorite vendor (carpet cleaning) was there and saw the whole thing!!!

Years ago, when I was still young and thin, I had two VERY large ladies on the cart. We viewed and apartment and headed back to the office. On the way the cart wouldn't go up a slight incline. I told the ladies the battery died. In reality it was their weight! We had to walk back to the office (there were inclines going the other way back as well). They were huffing and puffing by the time we got there. When they left I retrieved the golf cart and toodled on back to work

1st leasing job a couple months in...The brakes on our leasing cart were going out, sometimes to get the brakes to kick in you’d have to stomp really hard (so also sometimes the parking break would engage.) I was working by myself on a Saturday touring a prospect and it had started raining while we were in the model. On the way back it really starts pouring so we were going pretty quick back to the office. For some reason that day the gates also decided to malfunction and as we started getting closer they weren’t opening. I pushed the brakes... NOTHING. I pump the breaks frantically... NOTHING. So I jam the breaks... parking break kicks in, the golf cart just slides across the parking lot, nails the gate (which is just now showing signs of life) and the prospect flies off of the seat face first into the plexiglass windshield and ends up in a pile on the floor. Cue the “OMG are you ok?” She says yes, she’s fine but seems really annoyed. Prior to this I have to say the tour was going really well, so as we pull up to the office I ask her if she’d like to complete the application and leave a deposit for her new home. My silly young self was actually surprised she said no and ghosted me

Well, last month my son(who had DL for 1 week) had my husband’s Jeep. His 4 friends were in an 11k golf cart and they were horse playing around like bumper cars. The Jeep is lifted and caught the back rail of golf cart. The boys in back of golf cart told my son to stop while the girls driving sped up. The golf cart dislodged on side causing it to spin to the left and flip. Yep, flipped all the the way over. 4.5k in damage to golf cart, a broke hand for 1 boy and a $250 a month increase to my insurance. Luckily, that was all.

Also during turn we would move furniture using the golf carts and we were going too fast and had to slam on the brakes and the mattresses we were holding on top flew off the front of the golf cart bounced back and broke the windshield!
We dropped lots of furniture off the golf carts

Property that I managed once had a golf cart with a roof that had a dip in the middle. Usually it was parked in the garage on rainy days but sometimes it would start to ???? mid day so water would collect in the dip in the roof. Usually in that case we would walk prospects to show the vacant unit. If they were particularly irritating we may, or may not, have taken the golf cart and I may, or may not, have realized that stopping the cart quickly would cause the pooled water to be flung off the back of the roof onto the laps of the prospects that were sitting on the back seat that faced backwards

So I had a prospect on the golf cart with me. The day prior I had JUST got a new phone, it was between my legs while we were driving (as usual), we hit a pot hole and my phone bounced out of my lap and into a puddle and with NO thought whatsoever I went with the phone trying to catch it before it landed in the puddle, so I dive off the golf cart while it's still going and she's still on it, thankfully it hit a curb and stopped like right after I jumped off, I caught my phone and landed in the puddle. ???? I felt so bad, she laughed, I was like "I'm so sorry I just got this yesterday and couldn't watch my money go literally down the drain." ???? She still leased

Back in the 80's had a leasing agent showing property on a hilly area of Dunwoody (Atlanta) and the brakes failed. As she was going downhill toward a super busy street she yelled "bail out" and they all jumped into the pine trees/straw. The golf cart went all the way across on of the most heavily trafficked streets in the area and landed in the medium without hitting a single car.

One of my favorites - one of the maintenance guys was driving and was going far too quickly, causing some extra wind inside the sitting area. My leasing agent lost her wig - just blew right off. We still laugh about that!

Also one of the maintenance crashed the golf cart into the maintenance shop and we found him passed out in a chair and noticed he had his backpack filled with a big old handle of whisky.... we had to call 911, he was unresponsive. Never seen or heard from him again!

This is what I saw on day one driving into a new property I was managing. I mentioned the safety concern (what a nice to meet you moment) and as I did the radio comes alive. Seems the cart was blocking the entrance because it had tipped over. Yes, training was in line but not until first aid was provided.

First off, this is the best thread ever! ???? Second, my story is from years back. I had just issued a second 7 day to a young girl (1st apt, loud partying, cops out almost every night) and her mom had called the office earlier in the day irate and screaming. I was out on property later in the day with my leasing manager on the golf cart and was heading back into the office lot, and I see the mom coming from the front steps and she's running at me screaming. I just kept going past the office and punched the gas, but we were on the ancient cart that was on its last leg and it probably didn't go more than 10 mph tops, so it's put-put- putting and we're half screaming, half laughing while she's chasing us screaming "do you know who I am? I'm going to sick the Bandidos (biker gang) on you! " Ultimately, we escaped, but it was the most hilarious low-speed chase ever!

So I was doing a new lease up in the middle of no where with fields all around us. I had an incredible team, had not one but two pregnant ladies as part of that team. So one day we get this call from a resident that tells us that they hear someone calling out from the field right behind one of our buildings. So of course I grab my assistant and we hop on the 3 row golf cart we have. It was the kind that had the zipper rain flaps. Yes this was an eternity ago. So we’re driving kinda quick to the back of the property and I took a speed bump a lil too quick almost throwing my pregnant assistant out of it. Had it not been for those rain flaps. WHEW! Thank God, I didn’t. The funny part is we had called the police, they were on their way. So we get back there and hear a moaning type of noise. It was not a normal moaning. Anyway after police went into the field they came back to tell us a cow was giving birth in the field and that was the moaning. It was much more comical to experience than it reads.

I was driving ours across the property to check out a floorplan I wanted to transfer to and came across a section of the sidewalk that went between two pillars and was too narrow for me to get through. After almost getting stuck, I decided to jump the concrete curb/landscaping border to go around but ended up high centering it and getting stuck there instead. I had to walk all the way back to the maintenance shop to beg the guys to help me. Good times

My assistant was constantly asked to clean his office. He would always stack files so when someone was moving in you would look nuts trying to find it in his office. So one day I just had it. I went in removed everything from his office and we parked the golf cart in and shut the doors. (Office had French doors). It took a team of five to move it around so it would fit perfectly. We never laughed so hard when he came back from lunch. Also his desk was cleaned from that point on.

Had a couple come in to tour. They were EACH over 300 lbs easily. When we walked out to get on the golf cart it occurred to me this may not go so well so I offered to walk to the unit we were going to tour. It was a HOT day so they were not interested at all. We go to get on the cart and what do they do? One gets in the passenger front and the other gets on on the SAME side in the back. Both tires on the passenger side burst instantly. It was mortifying. I tried to play it off like they were really worn out old tires and needed replaced anyhow, it was bound to happen. To add insult to injury, when walking down stairs to the unit we were going to see (we had sub level units that were five stairs down) I tripped on the top stair and fell down all five stairs and skinned my knees and was bleeding. Definitely up there for one of my worst tours ever. And they didn’t lease

I had an assistant hop on the cart in front of our office and slam on the gas to release the brake. She forgot to put it in reverse and jumped the curb going airborne over the sidewalk and landing in the flowerbed. My leasing agent starts whaling and screams to come here. Before we could make it out the door, we see her look in all directions, put the cart in reverse and back it off the curb as if nothing had happened.

Four memorable moments...I took a right turn too fast and the door swung open causing me to about lose the prospect. Then, I was busy showing the prospect something to the right that I umm... almost hit a child that ran out in the street. ????
Then, I decided to shortcut through a swale and got stuck... had to be pulled out. Last event, I backed the cart (with brand new doors) out of the garage without seeing how close I was and took out the door.
I don't drive golf carts anymore...I really shouldn't be allowed to drive cars either.

Ok so long story short: we had our mailboxes broken into which lead to us finding out that someone on property was operating an identity theft operation. A guy tried moving in quickly and when he went to pick up keys he didn’t have an ID so we didn’t let him move in. We were suspicious so we kept an eye on him. The same car he drove onto property to pick up keys was the same car I saw drive thru property a day later. I hauled ass to go follow it and the guys got suspicious and fled and there I am in my golf cart poppin over curbs and hopping curb to have my brother who lives on property with me tackle this guy.

When I first started as a leasing agent, I had a golf cart that had rear-facing back seat for additional prospects, etc. I was touring 2 women who just wanted to sit in the back of the cart. They were each pretty big so I was nervous. Well, I guess they weren’t paying attention/listening when we took off because they flew off the back ???????? they were super nice though and ended up leasing. Way better than getting sued lol another time, leasing and maintenance had two separate carts and maintenance had a habit of stealing the leasing carts. One day I got fed up after they took it, and hid it making them think it was stolen lol

Day two of my new leasing gig I clipped a retaining wall and gashed my first tire. I then became very protective of my ride. A few months later my 4 coworkers and I were all working away and out of the corner of my eye I see through the window some of the minor neighborhood deviants walking up. They were about to jump on the golf cart when I quietly walked over to the door, opened it, and in my best, loudest, and most authoritative voice told them to get the heck off. They all ran in different directions. What I wasnt expecting was how I scared the living crap out of my coworkers with how loud I was and they and jumped out of thier skin.
But sometime later they succeeded in steeling my ride and ran it into a ditch somewhere off property. Broke the axel, smashed in the front end and messed her up real good. It had to be towed and rebuilt.

Many....many... moons ago. I was the leasing manager at a large, old garden community. Our golf cart had just come back from being fixed (we'd had lots of issues with it). We hadn't had the chance to take it for a drive to see if it was working when our Marketing Director and the SVP of Marketing for the company showed up for a tour and wanted to take the golf cart. I shared that we had just gotten it back and hadn't tested it yet but they still wanted to take it. Halfway up a big hill.... it died. The SVP in his very expensive clothes got out and pushed the car with myself and the Marketing Director in it (I was steering) up the hill.

When I worked on-site, there was one time I was showing a prospect right after a rain. My porter had dried off the seats but when I turned left, about 1 1/2 gallons of rain water splashed out of the right side of the canopy! Fortunately, the prospect was sitting far enough from the edge that they didn't get too wet.

Hilly property in North Carolina. Service person gets out to pick something up and doesn't apply the brakes. There were three cars at the bottom of the hill, a new Mercedes, a beat up Honda, and an older pick-up truck with the back bumper missing. Guess which car it elected to hit.

So it's a doozy.... driving back to the office with a prospect in the golf cart when i rounded the corner and started down the hill back towards the office. Just chit chatting enjoying the tour when i tried braking and no brakes.

Me: Ma'am, it looks like we aren't going to be able to brake and we are picking up speed.

Prospect: Curse word, curse word, curse word.

Me: (rolling down the hill and warp speed. thinking to myself, how in the world am i going to get this thing stopped. Ok Ma'am. Brace yourself.

Golf Cart: Reaching the bottom of the hill at top speed, she hits the curb at full force- Somehow causing it to become airborne. We fly over the grass and land face first into the scrubs outside of the office.

Me: Still holding on with white knuckles. I look over and i see my prospect has either leapt to freedom at some point while in the air or has been knocked out of said Cart.

Me: Ma'am are you ok? Let me help you up. Can I get you some water? (because apparently water is what anyone needs at a crime scene)

Prospect: No I'm fine.

Longest Walk back into the office: I'm so sorry. Let me get your license.

Prospect: Not a peep.

Me: Well, I look forward to having you move it. What a great story, right?

Follow UP: She didn't lease.

At one of my earliest properties I worked at, most of the buildings were up on top of a steep hill that you could access from two different directions. We didn't realize that our golf cart didn't connect to the charger well the night before and about half way up the hill with 3 quite a bit bigger people on the cart, it wouldn't go anymore. It just stalled because of the weight.

Two of the gentleman prospects were kind enough to push me and the other lady the remaining way up the hill, laughing about it the whole way. But, OMG, it was embarrassing. They thought it was such a funny story and I was mortified, but we glided back down the hill after seeing the 2 BR quite easily.

Somehow, they leased. LOL.
