Who Let the Kooks Out?

Yesterday was a stressful day—I was very busy catching up on work that was left unresolved while I was prepping and then observing Passover.

 

So perhaps you can imagine how little patience I had for these two (completely unrelated) conversations:

 

1.  “The fence is in the wrong spot, the fence is in the wrong spot, the fence is in the wrong spot!” screamed the buyers’ attorney. I responded, “Do you think I’m hard of hearing just because my clients can’t read a survey?”

 

2.  Caller: “I already signed a contract. Can I just save money and hire you to show up at the closing?” Me: “I’m not really open to that…If you were confident in your abilities to negotiate a contract, why do you think you need a lawyer at the closing?” Caller: “Huh? I didn’t negotiate the contract.  I didn’t even read the contract!”

Today my mother would have turned 80. To all who toil to eradicate the life-altering and health-eroding disease of diabetes, thank you for your efforts.  And hurry up, please: no one else should die at the way, way, way too-early age of 56…
