This is a story how a Back Bay agent for one of the largest (if not the largest) national chains was unable to unlock the door for a Boston apartment rental.
So, the story I heard, which I have no reason to believe it’s not true, one needs to punch in a few numbers on a keypad. The Back Bay agent called the owner and asked for the code. The owner was frustrated with the agent because he already gave him the code earlier in the day and told him, “It’s the year Columbus discovered America.”
A few minutes later, the Back Bay agent called back the owner to say, ” I’m sorry to bother you, the door won’t open even though I keep pressing 1776.”
