It really screwed up my whole month, financially. It's like you can't win either way!

Thank you. I'm not taking any new clients and working towards closing in the next year or two, so I'm hoping this is the last time I have to deal with stuff like this!!
The sad thing is this family will never even know how lucky they were to find you. I don't know anyone who would be willing to hold two slots for anyone. You went above and beyond for them.
