Sooo, looks like I'll be skipping leg day till we get this thing done

    Funny story (now that I'm on the other side): We purchased a property last year. I've owned the same business for 11 years. There was a potential tax discrepancy from 2017 of 0.34 cents. The underwriter went ape shit and delayed all kinds of shit for everybody involved for almost a week. I told the motherfuckers that I'd send them a 5 dollar bill to shut the fuck up. Of course I was told that it doesn't work that way. So our closing date was in July but with all the financing, we didn't start our first payment until September. So they took that 0.34 cent POTENTIAL debt and computed 3 months of interest and added it to our closing costs. It was like 3 fucking dollars. But the motherfuckers 'proved' that they were doing their 'diligence' and that's why they keep their jobs. I've owned several properties and everytime I finance there are hoops, but that one definitely took the cake.

    Good luck on the house. Thatís awesome. Youíll have way more long term equity in a house than Jeep.

    And selfishly, this may mean I have a chance of beating you on a Jeep build. Lol.
