Can I Borrow a Pointy Boot?

Trying to buy a home is going to be the death of me. I’m sure of it.

But then, keeling over before I’ve had a chance to reap the rewards of our hard won victory would be tremendously rotten luck.

I think the biggest problem for me is the simple lack of control over things now that we have lobbed the ball into the bank‘s court. Yes, it is possible that I may be inclined to exhibit a few Type A tendencies on occasion, (okay maybe a fair few) but the people at Citi Bank are suffering from something far more serious. They have a severe case of…Thumb Up The Rear.

I’m told it’s a fairly common ailment for people who work in this particular field and that the only cure is a swift kick in the ass. Fortunately for them, I am a medical professional and am willing to offer my services. Anything to help the cause.

Ha! This post made me giggle because I can relate. We were in the process of buying a home last fall/winter {which in the end we didn't do as we decided to stay in the Army for a bit longer} but lord was it exhausting!

It's good that you're a medical professional. You can walk them through the steps for removal of "thumb up butt-itis"....good luck! Banks are assholes.
