God Lord, Poet! You were a loan officer? And here all this time I thought you were a good fellow.

I mean, I don't believe I'd have told that!

But there's an exception to every rule, so maybe you were a GOOD loan officer.

Hermit: Notice that I am no longer a loan officer. I couldn't stand the negativity. Part of my job in looking at an application was to figure every reason why it wouldn't work. I got out of lending because I wanted to focus on how to make things work.

I did have a guy one time tell me (about 5 years after the fact) that I did him the biggest favor that anyone had ever done for him. I denied his loan application because his credit was too good. He was overextended. I counseled him to pay down some debts and come back and talk to me later. He said it was the best advice he'd ever received.

WHT: I visit your site frequently but occasionally I miss a day. If there had been a place to list four faults in the meme, being overly honest with people might have been one of them. But I do very much appreciate your regular visits to my blog. Do you ever miss a day???

Texas Red said...

Dad, I love you, but you can't count. It said 4 of each thing and you listed 5 of each thing. :)
I sure am glad you didn't name me Constantinople or sounds like a dog's name. A little, white, frufru dog.

Panhandle Poet said...

Thank you for that astute observation Texas Red. Until you mentioned it I didn't realize. I agree that Snickerdoodle does sound like a good name for a little white dustmop type dog.
