I close Thursday, furniture delivery Friday (plus plumber coming for estimate), big moving day on Saturday. I should be a Worcester resident by Sunday.

And I’m moved! Mostly. Living in the new house, at least. Few more trips back and forth for little things/sorting/mail.

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.

Yeah, but people are really stupid so ...

We just had a 50+ "reply all" email chain on Monday. It was glorious watching all the predictable responses coming in.

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.

My favorite is the people that reply "Unsubscribe" that are using the same logic Michael Scott did when he declared bankruptcy.

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.

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.

TIL: Dental Blue Freedom coverage from BCBS doesn't include wisdom tooth removal.

A nice, fat $2.3k bill for the better half's in-network wisdom tooth removal. The sooner insurance companies are guillotined, the better

I feel really dirty saying this, but I like Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal's retro's a lot more than the B's.

I listed my condo Wednesday early afternoon, had 3 offers at or over asking by 2 PM on Thursday and accepted one a few hours later. Phew. I was really worried it would linger around the holidays.

How long does a closing typically take? Should I be blocking out the whole day or a few hours?
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.

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.

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.

Well, in that case your info is more recent than mine, as I bought my condo in 2004.
