Tucson By Choice!: Apology To Fred Adler: "When I Mess Up, I 'Fess Up"

Apology To Fred Adler: "When I Mess Up, I 'Fess Up"

I made the appointment and blew it.  When Fred called to say he was going to be a few minutes late, I hadn't left the house yet. 

"Fred," I said, "I'm behind the 8-Ball; I live west of the Tucson Mountains, and it's going to take 45 minutes to get there.  Is that okay?"

Fred said "Sure", but he really meant "Are you kidding me?" 

I'm sorry, Fred.  Here's something to remember me by:



I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson, Arizona mortgage lender.

Think of me as chagrined.

Mike - I am so happy to have finally established the habit of putting EVERYTHING in Outlook - especially appointments WITH reminders. I've had to fess up to a few myself in the past.

OMG, that song is so appropriate... I'm sitting here trying to read blogs without my glasses because I haven't found them yet.  Off to Asheville this morning for results, so hope to be back on track later today!  Talk to you soon.
