How do you not like ME?! - Bonus 2nd post in one day

Wait I just remembered something. So the other day at work someone told me they met someone who DOESN'T LIKE ME. I was stunned! And amused, by the way, but this person who DOESN'T LIKE ME didn't know that the person who told me actually is a friend of mine. And of course he wasn't giving that up til he got the whole scoop. Apparently she DOESN'T LIKE ME because of a) the "quality" of my previous desk, and b) the fact that I have left the company and returned twice in the last few years. All really good reasons. Back in the day I had a heavy lender desk, and so consequently a lot of my business involved subprime loans - foreclosure and bankruptcy bustouts, no-doc stated income products, stuff like that. I guess because I closed that stuff I must be completely responsible for it, right? I mean, by the time a loan gets to me, the borrowers have been completely convinced by their loan officers that it is the best deal for them. Let me explain in simple terms what the role of an escrow officer is in Oregon: A NEUTRAL THIRD PARTY. So long as I am following all instructions and am convinced that the borrower sitting in front of me is the actual guy who owns the house, I am pretty much at the end of my responsibility. Now granted, if the loan officer is sitting at the table WITH the borrower and he is holding, say, a buck knife or a semi automatic weapon at the borrower's head while the borrower reconsiders, yeah, I have a responsibility to sense that perhaps the borrower is being coerced into signing. But remember that whole concept of free will? Yeah, um, these people have been fully disclosed way before I ever entered the picture, and to date I have seen no weapons in my signings.

So, girl who DOESN'T LIKE ME (and this time it had nothing to do with my two year old sweaters), just because I closed very good numbers monthly, bonussed enough to be able to finance over a year in another country without having to work, and came back (twice) based upon not only my abilities as an escrow officer but my sparkling wit and warm personality, do not be a hater. You can admit that you're jealous. I have met you exactly twice. You have no room to tell people you don't like me. Odds are good the people you are telling DO like me and will probably report that back to me, since they know I will be amused. And, you know, shocked, because, shit, how do you not like ME? Blows me away. And just makes me want to work harder to make you NOT LIKE ME MORE.

How in the world does a high school era ranting blog entry about somebody hearing gossip about somebody else who they barely know having a childish hate on them for minor petty reasons have me laughing on the floor before 7am? Thanks Joyce!

I especially like the last paragraph. Clearly, that person whom we do not name who does not like you is really shitty at their job and really jealous. She probably hates you for all your nice expensive purses too.

I know I do.

Well to be perfectly honest with you Joyce, I can understand this girls hate for you.
When I first met you I thought you were the full package friend, with your smiles and wit, the laughter and the talks, the sunshine all the time, at least in public. That "always a good friend" crap. I saw through all that too. She has also seen that your good natured, thinking of others(well after thinking of yourself first, dah) is all just a smoke screen for the bad Joyce , the bitch at work Joyce.

So you can fool some of the people some of the time Joyce, but not all of the people all of the time.

And MW is right, the purses, please!! Oh by the way, thanks for the purse, I love it!! Think of you everytime I use it.

Your friend always,

Hm. Makes you kind of wonder if Janet is serious.

I'm confused.

Have I been fooled all this time? Is Joyce just really an undercover bitch hidden behind a nice person???

I feel so stupid. And to think, when she listens to my crap and brings me stuff, she really is just faking it!

Stupid me!!!
