Thanks to everyone who commented on the  Having a Bad Day photos.  It provided a much needed chuckle in a stressful week.  I think it is good to maintain a sense of humor in any business (especially ours). One of my clients ask after a particular hard transaction how I kept my cool.  I thought fo...
