Got a call from PainintherearLending. Can you do an appraisal in BigCitySuburb by tomorrow late? Er, No, we're full up for this week, booking for next Monday. Why, are they closing on Friday or something? No, but all the other appraisers have plenty of time and are not busy. Well, call them instead. Merry Christmas. I guess we're an exception instead of the norm. Oh, well, the bills get paid on time, and other appraisers setting by the phone is not my problem. Things are also looking up for next year. Got "please sign up" requests from two major new clients this week, so actually may expand the business. So, for those who are slow, it's not everyone, and it will improve. Hang in there.
