Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I told a caller that I wouldn’t be able to meet with her next Wednesday night because that was the start of Rosh Hashanah. Her response was, “Oh. I forgot they still had that.”

 

~~After almost 30 years, you think I’d get used to being called a “bitch” simply because I protect my client interests. Actually, I almost am, as that is how I’ve come to represent some of the nicest clients I ever had when they hired “the bitch on the other side last time we closed.”  They then find out that I will dig in my heels and shield them, but I never go out of my way to make anyone else’s life harder.

 

However, it still stings a bit when a lender’s rep I’ve known for years lets me in on the names the buyers’ attorney is calling me, simply because I won’t agree to a closing date that would greatly inconvenience my client. I respect that she wants what’s best for her client, but my obligation to do the same is met with gutter talk.  How is that productive?

 

~~ I received calls yesterday from one woman who said she was “following up on [my] desire to get more information about obtaining a college degree” and another who was trying to sell me a surf and turf “freezer plan.” [I checked--I am on the “Do Not Call” registry.]  Where do these companies obtain their lists? I can’t believe a long-time vegan with a law degree would show up as a viable prospect for either company.

 

~~I have an unsolicited tip for the paralegal seeking work using the e-mail address “IBCrazy4you@xxxx.com.” Even if I had work, I’d hesitate hiring an applicant calling herself “crazy” in any context!

 

Have a good weekend! For the last time in 2011, I’ll cheer:

Let’s Go Mets!

J!-E!-T!-S!  JETS! JETS! JETS!
