Perhaps they'd run out of "we called but you were out" cards..?

... says ViewFromTheSolent who spotted this in The Portsmouth News:

A HOMEOWNER said he is lucky to be alive after a lorry crashed into his house this morning.

Anne Wiles, 66, and Len Wiles, 61, of Brockhurst Road, Gosport, had been sleeping when a 7.5tonne Royal Mail lorry ploughed into the house. 

It is stuck 4ft into the building, and has demolished the stairwell.

Mr Wiles said: "I woke up at about 6am and I heard a smash. I was lucky because I had been planning to go downstairs 10 minutes earlier. We opened the door and there were no stairs – instead we could see a lorry.

"The fire brigade rescued us and were brilliant. All the emergency services were absolutely brilliant, and our neighbours."

Here's the punchline...

The couple said they had only recently sold their home, but now things will be on hold.

What's estate agent-speak for "Has no front wall or interior stairs"?
