Leaping Ahead, Apparently

After having been around the block thousands of times, I almost always know when someone’s trying to BS me.  Though items and customary procedures were being shared out of order, the other attorney kept saying “all’s confirmed with the closing” as he listed the date, time, and place.

Against my better instincts, and because of my clients’ affection for their purchasers, I wedged in their closing amongst others that were genuinely confirmed. I made the calls, sent the letters, had the docs prepared.

Of course, you know there was no actual closing scheduled with the powers-that-be. When the other attorney lets me know this, he tries to claim I jumped the gun.

Since I rarely jump, and I detest guns, I felt the urge to send him back one of his recent e-mails to me, edited:

Hi,

Finally (I guess you mean eventually), it’s confirmed (did you mean possibility?)! Closing will (did you mean might?) take place on (did you mean around?) July ***, 2013 at **** (did you mean or anyplace else with a table and chairs?).
