Tuesday! Tuesday! Can't Trust That Day...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

My post of yesterday was a sort of a rant about how I detested Mondays...I shoulda known better...

So far, and it's now beyond 3 PM, I haven't accomplished much in the way of constructive or productive work!

The entire day has been spent putting out fires...I just wish they were the kind of fires they're encountering in the far west...at least it woud be helpful to saving lives...my kind of 'fire extinguishment' is the typical 'title issues' and business related 'fires' that need to be addressed almost on a daily basis...

Now folks, this is not a rant...it is a mere statement of fact...we deal all day with municipalities, lenders, tax collectors, lawyers, underwriters, old borrowers, new borrowers, yet to be borrowers...oh, and yes...real estate agents and loan officers!

The order in which I listed the respective entities is roughly in descending order of aggravation...at least as far as 'fire extinguishment' is concerned...

Of course we get many pleasurable phone calls from some on the list, but by and large...we are in the 'fire fighting' business!

And worse yet, we can't use duct tape, WD-40, or wipey dypes!

I know this sounds like a long 'Twitter', but I'm tired and I'm headed home...and there's more of this excitement where that came from to be had tomorrow...hump day!!!

We're already half-way through the week!!!  Just two more days to go.  I think everyoone is taking some extra days off, so they're trying to jam everything into the first couple days of the week.. we've been really busy too.  But then again- that's a good thing!!

Gary: It depends if the Phillies win tonight!

Becky: I'll bet that's why our phones were ringing off the hook...people tying loose ends before taking off!!! :)

Thanks,   Fran

I saw the Title, and thought oh no, Fran Doesn't hate dislike Tuesdays too..... But then I read on and see that you are overwhelmed. As Becky said we are very busy too ( between you and I, I think it has something to do with Google Juice, you know what I am talking about).

I hope the Phillies win tonight- Just for you. And I am looking forward to "Wednesday, Wednesday..." Your blogs are a ray of sunshine!

You've got a point there my friend.  Duct tape and WD40 would make for a rough afternoon.  Yikes.

Fran,
Putting out fires is 60 % of what REALTORs do too....we become expert problem solvers in the process.

I hope you had a relaxing evening last night and today was better for you.
