OK, yesterday I received an email in my work account from a guy I knew in high school. We were very close friends then, and lost touch a while back. At least 10 years ago? But he googled me! Kind of cool, but also kind of scary. In any event, he was in town for the day and we had lunch today, and caught up. We were standing on opposite street corners on our cell phones trying to figure out where each other was, and finally I saw him before he saw me, and exclaimed 'you have a gut!'. I'm so not nice to my friends. Obviously he's used to it.
And then I thought I had a place to stay for a couple days, and the lady writes back and asks me to tack on 3 extra days, which was not at ALL clear in the ad. When I say I had only wanted the 5 days she stated in the ad, she said basically have a nice life. ACK! I hate it when people are 1) not clear in their communication 2) do not take the time to try and be clear and work things out and 3) drop you like a hot stone if you are confused. Whatever.
Speaking of which, I was driving along a road last night to get to my friend's, and a woman was jogging on the road when there was a perfectly good sidewalk right there. She got pissed because I apparently got too close to her. HELLO! There's a friggin sidewalk right there ready to be used. Running in the street does not entitle you to a 5 foot wide bubble of safety around you.
And finally, there were FOUR offers on the place I put an offer on this weekend. Sigh. My realtor harangued the other one until he hinted that I have a good offer, but they are likely still to come back and ask for 'best and final' which mine won't change very much. I offered almost my best and final, dammit. But supposedly there will be some resolution today because the realtor is being harassed by everyone. Obviously this is a good property.
So that's it from the cereal box here.
