|Seller's package yesterday and when I confirmed the appointment with the husband I requested that we do it outside. He was totally appalled that I would even make such a request. He insisted that I come into his home and do it. I also informed him that I would be wearing a mask and if we could socially distance during the signing that would be great. Just trying to follow some of the protocol set forth by some of the lender's and title companies I am working for as I work with a lot of immunocompromised signers and I have just made it standard practice to wear a mask, perform outdoor closings, and socially distance during this time. So after a 12 minute confirmation call having to explain and defend my actions, he agreed and said he would have some tv trays out on the front porch.|
So when I arrive, he proceeds to laugh at me for wearing a mask, his wife seems to find great pleasure in this and giggles and rolls her eyes at me. They tell me how they have just traveled to Naples and no one is wearing a mask there. I then tell him that in Miami, it is mandatory to wear a mask. He proceeds to make some racial statement about Miami and then tells me that he is a Trumpster and if I am not a Trumpster he doesn't want me in his house anyway.
The signing went even more downhill from there. Many comments were made by him about my mask and doing an outdoor closing. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
My next closing was with a gentleman suffering from multiple myeloma who had recently undergone a stem cell transplant. He was so thankful that I was willing to do an outdoor closing and wear a mask. It is for people like that, I will continue to wear my mask, do outdoor closings, socially distance, and hopefully stop the spread of this horrid virus.
For some it may be just a cold, for others it could mean the end of life. I refuse to compromise my integrity.
