I Wanna Be Sedated

I have so much on my plate right now that Refrigerator Perry couldn't finish everything on it.

I am incredibly busy, but the vast majority of it is non-productive.  Sellers' lenders deny their requests for short sales, buyers get turned down for mortgages, rising rates deter refinancers.  Landlords with half-empty shopping centers refuse to negotiate with long term tenants at rent renewal time at market rates, wanting to stick to the 5% per year raises they've gotten for the past half-decade, bringing the renewal asking price $2-3 per square foot over what nearby center owners are promising. 

"Modification" centers are ripping people off, but the attorneys running them/working with them are boasting about how they've found a way to "make the recession work."  Good for them, but as long as my son and I have an apple left to eat (plus carrots for my dogs) I won't make money off the heartbreak of others.  But I don't make any money listening to the tales of woe possible clients tell me about the ways (and amounts) they've been ripped off either.

I wasn't busy for a long time, and I know I griped.  Now I'm busy and I'm still griping, because there's nothing to show for the scurrying and the negotiating and the hand-holding and the maneuvering at the end of every day.  No money, no progress, not even any satisfaction in a job well done.

Can you tell I need a vacation?

Have a great weekend.  As always, let's go Mets!
