House update
No house yet. Totally unsurprisingly they couldn't get the work I found on Wednesday done to close on Friday. No one called me today either. Tomorrow I guess I'll call my lawyer again or something. It wouldn't be so frustrating except he's had months to do this shit. First he waited until I signed the P&S and put money down. OK, fine, I can kind of accept that he didn't want to commit to doing work until he had a signed agreement to take the house if he did. But then he dragged his feet, got over two weeks extension to do it, *had people in to do it*, and *still missed shit*. He had a complete list. How hard is "all lights, switches, and outlets must be in working order"? When the lights don't go on "Oh, the bulb must be burned out" isn't OK - working order means you replace the bulb. All debris means *all debris* - not everything except the shit that's hard to dump, like a battery.

I'd guess it'll happen sometime this week since it is close and he wants the rest of the money.

Oh hey! I know someone within 3,000 miles who has a Siamese! Now, if I ever actually have more than half a day off at a time ever again, I might be able to field-test that "people who are allergic to cats don't have problems with Siamese" thing. Sounds like a total myth to me, but I'm willing to risk a few hours of sneezing and itchy eyes to find out sometime...

I'm not sure if I am less allergic to her or not. I suspect that no matter what fuzzy creature I own, burying my face in its fur will be the doom of me. :-)

You are welcome to visit anytime!!

It is a very cute cat. :-)

I've got a couple of things for you - I picked up the latest edition of The X-Planes, that big book, and I'm giving you the last edition I had. I also have another DVD of 'The Batman' burned. I think something else too... I'm frazzled.

Talk to your lawyer, see if you can get money deducted from the closing cost for every deadline he misses.

He's costing you time and money by not meeting what he's signed on to do, the favor should be returned to cost him money. Maybe that way he'll learn to be a bit more responsibile.

I agree with 7threality! You need to start demanding something for you. It's like I told you the other night on the "phone" (And please don't bite my head off for this again) but this deal is between YOU and SELLER nobody eles. Everyone else is the middle man, and his middle men are the ones fucking up. It was his choice to hire them ...

It's like with your job, if you fuck up something the owner needs, he will yell at your boss, who will then come to you. It's not up to him to get rid of you - it's up to your boss ....

You need to put your foot down on this! It's gone on WAY too long. I really hope to god this house is worth it to you. Not just the price being right, but the location the size ... everything. I would hate to see you move in and have it feel like "Some place" and not a "Home".
