Lending Companies….wtf?

I went on a field chase for a lender this morning. The borrower had gotten behind in her car loan payment, so the lender had given me the address to go knocking on her door and deliver a demand letter to her.

When I got there I was met by an elderly gentlemen who told me that she must have been the previous owner of his house. After checking county records I found out that he bought the house a year ago.

WTF???? How can a lender after losing touch with a borrower for more than a year not know that he or she has moved? This is totally beyond me!!


Just When I Get Really Disappointed In People…..

Someone goes out of their way and does something nice for a complete stranger.

I was looking for the Sheriff’s Department and the Circuit Court in downtown Warrenton today. I put “78 West Lee Hwy” in my GPS…so how hard can that be???

Well the GPS kept directing me to the Ruby Tuesday no matter what direction I was coming from. I was really getting stressed out. Funny how putting Hwy instead of St could make such a big difference.

I finally got downtown which is on top of a huge hill and I drive a stick shift. Everywhere I went people were stopping inches from my back bumper and there was really no way to drive after a complete stop without rolling back a few inches. People that know me, know how anal I am about my car so this was naturally freaking me out a bit. I finally decided to just find a parking lot near the top of the hill and walk from there.

Still not knowing where I was going, I decided to ask this gentleman that was sitting at the bank across the street from me. He gave me really good directions and I told him that I would just walk.

I had walked about a block when the gentleman and his wife pulled up to me and offered to drive me over to the Sheriff’s Department. They really made my day. What a nice thing to do for a complete stranger especially in this day and age.
