Tossed Salad Friday

~~Someone who wanted to write for my magazine didn’t like that I asked her for revisions to a proposed story before I gave her an assignment. How do I know that she didn’t like it? She hit “reply” instead of “forward” and sent me an e-mail that she meant for a friend, outlining my response and calling me a “touch cookie.”

  I actually think that's a hysterical typo, rather than the insult she intended!

~~ I told my client that she should allot 2+ hours to a closing that should take no more than 30 minutes. She wondered if I knew something about the deal that she didn’t. “No, but even though things don’t always end up badly, they frequently take wrong turns from start to finish.” Leaving the closing, which lasted from noon until almost 3:00 pm, she asked, “Shall I call you Nostradamus from now on?”  Sure. Who wouldn’t want to be known for an uncanny ability to sense doom around every closing table?


~~ Speaking of calling people names, a few people wanted to know how my large client could be so cool in the presence of the pea-brained attorney I wrote about the other day. “I would have called her every name in the book!” exclaimed one colleague. All I know is, he’s a terrific man who made the smart choice to bolt from the closing holding both a huge bank check and his head high. I hope I follow his example next time I am faced with such a prejudiced person (and I wouldn’t mind getting a check with all those zeroes, either).


~~Have you called your congressional representatives to say, “I want to pay the same tax rate that Mitt pays” yet?


~~I left a room and returned to hear a real estate agent saying, “And that’s when I realized that I had his cat in my car.” I regret failing to ask her to repeat the first part of the story!


The Rangers are on their All-Star break, and I’m wondering if Newt will send the Knicks to the moon since they’re playing so bad… So please, occupy somewhere, have a great weekend, and {cough, moan, grimace}

Funny typos
A friend texted me that she was running late and needed to cancel. I replied "OK" and she responded with: "I am sorry I have been so busty lately." I was laughing too hard to reply!

Re: Funny typos
That's not something you usually hear in the context of an apology!

Have a great weekend.
