Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

The buyers’ eyes were glowering, and all their ire was directed at me. At one point I said to the bank attorney something innocuous about all the “mixed precipitation” we were having, and one of the buyers almost jumped down my throat.

“You wouldn’t have had to worry about the snow if you’d gotten off your ass to close this two weeks ago!”

“Excuse me?” I didn’t know what he was talking about, but I knew I was in for it, big-time.

“You delayed the deal because you didn’t know how to fix the sellers’ problems. I know all about it!” he said both angrily and smugly.

Flabbergasted, I made sure that I pulled up the buyers’ attorney’s furtive gaze, now pointing to the floor. I demanded to know what we could possibly be talking about, as I had no clue.

The attorney stammered and side-stepped for a bit, then semi-confessed he might have possibly confused this deal with another one, or, actually, he might have, kinda, not been completely forthcoming about his own readiness to close.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa!” his client yelled, before grabbing my hand to shake it. “I’ll deal with him later. In the meantime, we can laugh about the mistake, right? Ha, ha! Merry Christmas, my friend!"

****

If you’re celebrating Christmas, I wish you blessings and cheer!
