It's apparently convenient & fun to kick the LO, Bruss, various banks, AVM's, AMC's, etc. After all, Appraisers "don't get no respect" from those sources. But appraisers even ream always "optimistic" appraisers (skippies), dumb appraisers (flunkies?), inexperienced appraisers, etc. I swear, even skippies have their set of standards. Shouldn't there be skippy light? How about smart skippy (covers tracks well)? Dumb skippy (the opposite of smart skippy)? Dumb skippy could also be called an orange jump suit wannabe. Helpful homeowners were my favorite pet peeve. It never failed, as the homeowner insisted on holding the dumb end of the tape, chatting away, I would fail to take my normal set of notes. Heck, the perimeter sketch usually didn't close Now, I'm not saying "let's tone it down". Heck no! I'm just wondering who the favorite villain would be? I wish I knew how to set up a pole, but, I'd probably just forget a favorite category.
