A bad case of writer's block
For a couple days now I have been overwhelmed by on goings in my life. If I posted they would have been long rants about people that should remain nameless. Consumed by work, I have not been able to think of anything else. So I decided to post about what has been sooo consuming.
Plain and simple, my client is stupid. Maybe more than stupid. I do home loans and sometimes you go through a rough patch in the market. The people buying houses right now should kiss the earth and thank the lord they have a place to live, let alone own.
This guy has had to be the dumbest person I have ever tried to get own a home. He wanted the home badly, but no matter how hard I tried to get him to turn in his paperwork, it seemed to be to hard. He would return my calls every other day and there seemed to be one surprise after another. Then the jaw dropper, I was getting him into a government loan and found out that he hadn't filed taxes in YEARS!!! He had 1 day to get it done. I was surprised that it penetrated his brain that the deadline was Tuesday. He did say that after he realized I was going to kill him he learned a big lesson. I had to ask...."what was that?"
"Don't screw with the IRS or you could land in jail" ..Wow..being the manager of a bank I thought he would have known that!
