I am beginning to wonder if I have AGS . It seems to attack middle-aged (ugh) men. Seemingly average, but worldly and intelligent (debatable) individuals are suddenly struck down in their prime. They awaken one day to have zero charisma and worse, little if any relevance. Victims of AGS are scorned and shunned which appears to be their own self-fulfilling prophecy. Nice guys finish last... Yes, its true. You ARE boring!! The namesake of this syndrome has often been mistaken as having less personality than the agents who protect him.
Are you also a victim of Al Gore Syndrome?
You may ask why I feel that I was stricken with such a horrible and life-altering affliction. I have had numerous positive, professional relationships with the clients I have served in the past. I get to know them, provide my services (sometimes hundreds of closings) to their escrow office, mortgage brokerage, real estate or law offices. Then, suddenly and without warning, they close their doors forever...sometimes heading back to workat the local McDonalds. They forget they know me or to pass my card along to their new employer(s). They find new people to go to lunch with...imagine! Perhaps in the cosmic theme of things, I upset the balance by being consistent and flawless and expanding my offerings while being a professional who gets things done right the first time.
Why then, was I stricken? Nice guys do finish last...that's why! I will now go back to work, alone and await their phone-calls that may never come. All the while I will remember the glory days and try to hide my private shame.
I continue to look upon things in an upbeat and positive way!!
The sky is NOT falling. The Fed continues to keep a lid on interest rates and inventory is starting to move again. Even gasoline prices are dropping again...not a bad thing for a Mobile Notary/Signing Agent (NSA) who once put 180,000 miles on his vehicle in just two years. Besides, it could always be worse. I could have DQDITHD. That would be terrible as AGS is at least curable and something that an NSA can come back from. DQDITHD on the other hand, is forever!
Yes, Dan-Quayle-Deer-In-The-Headlights-Disease (DQDITHD) is something that NOBODY has ever come back from...
