Not nosey neighbors

I'd just sat down, surrounded by all the comforts of American life (football on a big TV, beer and salty snacks) when I noticed 2 women peering through our living room window.

"Looks like the neighbors are introducing themselves", I said to Anne.

But 10 seconds later and the doorbell still had not sounded. I opened the door to find the ladies wandering around our yard.

"Is this house still for sale?", they asked.

"No", I replied.

"It's still listed", they countered.

"Huh", was all I had to offer as they closed the gate.

A French insult would have done the trick... Something like:
"Foutez-le-camp de ma nouvelle propriété ou bien j'appelle les flics !"
Bam!
