Happy, um, Thursday, GN!

I hope I have fewer idjits to deal with today.

“Look, dumbass…nobody wants to go inside your condo, but if you’d like us to correctly diagnose your damned leak, it’s sorta helpful if we can see your damned leak.”

Sheesh.

BBL.

Good morning, Fatwa, dv8, and Sven!

I see that Wisconsin has been liberated by their state Supreme Court. Hopefully more states will follow suit.

Sad when the courts have to step in.

Hi, dv8, Sven and Paddy! Sad when the courts have to step in. True…but that may be better than armed citizens having to step in. Idjit Homeowner Update: When I spoke with Ms. Doofus yesterday (who lives on the second floor of a three-story HOA), she asked if she could send photos of her “leak” and perhaps avoid a visit from some filthy, degenerate, plague-carrying roofer. I figured pics wouldn’t help but said we could try that option; she said she’d text me some pics today. Which she did…of the stucco wall outside her unit, which, as stucco walls will… Read more »

After the mortgage broker corrected their messed up refi paperwork, we are one step closer to putting this to bed. This is our third refi and I think the most poorly done one yet. If I knew it was going to be this much of a headache, I think I might have skipped it now regardless of the $ savings and future uncertainty.

jeebus -- has competency gone the way of the dodo?

Maybe. Mrs Sven says each time we’ve done this, there’s been problems. In this last instance, they gave us an estimate of costs that included another year’s worth of homeowner’s insurance that they wanted paid upfront as the policy was due next month. They sent us an estimate that was correct, then when we sat down with the notary, it was 2X what it should have been.

Anyhow, the money has been wired -- the bank was surprisingly friendly and helpful.

Drive-by: You’re a good man and employee, Fatwa. Cheers, sir. I generally try to treat folks the way I like to be treated. (Except for people I have an, ahem, unpleasant history with, in which case I tend to treat them the way they deserve.) 👿 jeebus — has competency gone the way of the dodo? Jim’s doing a refi as well. His buddy who’s handling it decided the bank they were dealing with was performing unacceptably so he switched Jim to a different bank and locked him in at 0.25% less than the non-performer. 😉 But Jim’s a little… Read more »

She said there was; coming in through a window because there’s water running down the outside of the building.

You mean you didn’t extend the roof down the sides of the building? To ground level?

Tell her to close the window, then the water won’t get in.
