|You have a closing for Mr. and Mrs. Clem Clarence Kadiddlehopper, and you realize that Mrs. Clara Cecilia Kadiddlehopper has gone out of town with Mrs. Margaret Mae Magillicutty and has given power of attorney to Margaret's son Matthew Maximillion Magillicutty.|
On the day of the closing you meet with Clem and Matthew while Mrs. Kadiddlehopper and Mrs. Magillicutty have gone off to visit their dear friend Hattie Hatfield who's daughter Heloise McCoy has recently had a baby and it's a pretty big deal being a Hatfield-McCoy baby and all.
So now that you've got the story straight on all this Kadiddlehopper, Magillicutty, Hatfield, McCoy business . . . and before you ask . . . I do not know the name of the baby . . . but I have heard talk it might very well be named something like Saint Royal HatCoy if it is a boy (yes these modern parents have decided to combine their last names and make up their own new last name erasing all Hatfield-McCoy bad history) and Precious Jewels Ikea Orange Cornflower HatCoy if it is a girl.
So you are finally at the closing table and Mr. Kadiddlehopper signs his name, and Matthew Magillicutty signs as Clara Kadiddlehopper by Matthew Magillicutty her attorney in fact. The big question now is how do you fill in your acknowledgements?
P.S. I seriously had a young couple take their two last names and combine them and make up their own last name. It was on their driver's license but not on any of their loan documents or title documents. Needless to say . . . title went bonkers when I called in from the table . . . and the closing was promptly adjourned until things could be sorted out.
