Don't Forget the Tartar Sauce!

Title Insurance with First American Title

My escrow team knows me all too well. We had an awesome month end and they closed well over 100 transactions this month from our Kent Branch. If you know escrow, and you know what two LPOs, two assistants, and one part time receptionist/assistant can do in a month, it's mind boggling!

It was totally a bucking bronco amazingly amazing crazy ride busy kind of month end this August 2012 and we celebrated by treating ourselves to a couple of takeout lunches this week.

I'm the first one to admit, I'm kind of the absent minded professor type, and the great leftovers from these delightful lunches were offered up to me, the token bachelor male of the office!

But I spaced and totally forgot to take them home yesterday. So when I got to the office today they posted the obvious big sticky note on my monitor, TARTER SAUCE :O) And still, absorbed in thought about the projects I'm working on, I didn't see it. Duh!

Yet, they held out as long as they could (bless them) until they just couldn't contain themselves any longer this afternoon and broke out into a loud hilarious group laughter and roasted me on the spot!

I totally got it! Don't Forget the Tartar Sauce!

I work with such an amazing, talented, dedicated group of wonderful women in this branch who under constant fire remain composed, sweet, caring, thoughtful, funny, and real! If you've ever been around this industry any time at all you know what I'm talking about and you know what that means, "I'm totally blessed!"

Oh, and again, I will not forget the Tartar Sauce, the shrimp, clam and chicken strips, the black-bean salad, steak fries, or the salsa on this Friday night going into the holiday weekend.

Have a wonderful, fun, Labor Day weekend everyone! Rest, enjoy, work or play, have a great time!

Well my friend.  Nice that your crew kicked butt for the month. Second that you got to have all the amazing leftovers and Third.....  I had no idea you were walking in to that this morning, after we left the coffee shop.  Enjoy your weekend and time with the daughter and family.

A lot in this post, but first -- what a great Aug. 2012!  Compared to last year I'm sure it's a nice turn-around.  And how fun about the tartar sauce.  I wondered what this post was about, now I get it!  :-)
