My home is not a place, it is people.

In the last episode of "Trying To Sell Our Home", the appraisal had been done and we were merely waiting for the paperwork to go through. Our Real Estate agent told us that we would close today at the earliest, next Wednesday at the latest.

Paul called two days ago for an update (as I mentioned, we have to call him. He rarely calls us.). Upon calling him Paul learned that he has gone on vacation.


No doubt, tired out from not calling us to give us updates he had to go on vacation.

Now, I'm sure that there are others in the office who can answer our questions, but it seems rude to me - poor business practice - not to give your clients a courtesy call and say "by the way, I'll be out of the office but don't worry because Bob or Mary can take care of you". Is that so wrong? Is that really too much to expect? What is wrong with him?

Oh well. As far as we know everything is ok. Hopefully it's a good sign that he's on vacation. Maybe it means everything is ok. From now on we'll just call the escrow company.
