Oh man. Don't you love those? 2 emails back and forth, a third with the "oops, sorry everyone" and then 47 "please don't reply all" emails.
Nothing quite like when it happens at my company with over 100K employees worldwide. I had to delete like 2000+ emails one time. It was epic.My favorite is the people that reply "Unsubscribe" that are using the same logic Michael Scott did when he declared bankruptcy.
as of 2:00 they've started stripping attachments from any emails that come from outside our system. Makes it pretty damn hard for me to do my job.Thanks!
Yeah, we were notified of that as well and it prompted a hospital-wide "DON'T CLICK ON SKETCHY THINGS, YOU IDIOTS" email. We send out test emails all the time now, to try to trick people into clicking links. I got one a few weeks ago and forwarded it to the help desk - they confirmed for me that it was a test and that I'd passed the test. Yay me?
Apparently people get phished at least once a week. It's crazy. There's a giant yellow and red banner on any email from outside the network.
Mixture of the mid to late 60s gold with the 80s early 90s scary bear patch on the shoulder.
The actual closing typically only takes a couple of hours but I would block out the day just in case of unforeseen issues such as lawyers running late, paperwork that might have to get reprinted, etc. for example we got delayed about 2 hours because they spelt my wife’s first name wrong on all the paperwork and had to reprint it.How long does a closing typically take? Should I be blocking out the whole day or a few hours?
I didn’t realize that everyone had to go to the registry right before Covid hit. When we closed in 2011 we did it right at our attorneys office.Yeah it's super weird now too. In MA you used to all gather at the registry of deeds and do it there, in person, and file right away. You'd walk out with the keys (or a fat check). It took a couple of hours unless something like what happened to Salem happens.
Now in MA it's virtual and takes forever. The actual signing happens with your lawyer alone and takes maybe an hour, but depending on how busy the day is at the courthouse and how busy your mortgage company is, it may take forever. Schedule it as early in the morning as possible.
Example - our closing was scheduled for 9:30 AM. We didn't get the word that it had been filed and accepted by the registry until almost 3.
Congrats my friend. Great feeling.It took fucking 4 hours for the wire transfer to be completed but we’re homeowners. It’s a great feeling.
Yeah we’re going to do our bathrooms both over, rip up carpets and lay wood floors down upstairs, and paint before we move in.Congrats my friend. Great feeling.
I bought my house almost 3 years ago (wow) and it's come so far since then. It wasn't a fixer/upper or anything, but it was rough around the edges and a lot of the stuff was low quality builder's grade. Since then, we've re-done the kitchen, re-done the bathrooms, put in new carpeting, and re-did the lawn/landscaping. It feels like our house, and a totally upgraded house from the one we bought.
Re-doing my office is next and probably some cosmetic stuff like painting indoors over the winter, then it's a new deck next summer. The list never ends.
Yikes. Glad they caught it in time. Scary stuff.Also - I've had a buddy who's furnace just went (and almost released enough CO to kill him and his family if not for his CO detectors) and another buddy who's hot water heater blew today.
1. Make sure you CO monitors work
2. Get regular maintenance on your HVAC systems. I just submitted the request for mine today.
Our guy was licensed. He just did a zillion jobs at once so he'd work at our house for an hour then go off to another job. So a cumulative 4-5 hours of work stretched over a week. It's just a bit nerve wracking when your front steps are turned into rubble and you wonder if the guy is going to come back and finish hat he started or if I'm going to have to find a way to finish it on my own.Learn from my mistake. Only use licensed contractors. We had an amateur do shitty work and bleed all over the place and had to pay someone else just as much to re-do everything.
Awesome! Congrats.It took fucking 4 hours for the wire transfer to be completed but we’re homeowners. It’s a great feeling.
