Tossed Salad Friday

~~The person I think invented early morning meetings is a bald, heavily bearded insomniac who only showers semi-regularly, has no kids or pets, owns just one suit and tie, and lives within five minutes of the venue.

 

~~A friend asked if the real estate market was picking up. I replied, “The market is tricky now. Sellers care too much but can't always afford to be flexible, buyers care too little, and banks try to come up with ways not to lend. That’s not a combo conducive to prosperity!”

 

~~A recent caller asked, "Can you tell me your fee?" I replied, "Sure; for what type of legal service?" Said she, "I'd appreciate answers before you ask questions!" I knew this wasn’t going anywhere, so I told her she’d need to make an appointment for a consultation before I disclosed my fee. That didn’t go over too well…

 

~~Someone I know is struggling to get a big name bank to decide on her refinance application. Did I have any advice for her? “Yes, stick with it--there is usually someone with an ounce of common sense and a bit of authority, if you talk to enough people!”

 

~~In total contradiction to what I just wrote above, there is an appalling dearth of reasonable people working for the too-big-to-fail banks. I wonder if  they seek primarily people who are inattentive and lack judgment to fill the jobs, or do they train the compassion and rationality right out of them before they let them answer the phones?
