The other day I had a kidney stone attack and ended up laying in a hospital bed all drugged up. I had gone in early so I thought I was going to be operated on the same day and be fine right away. Well my wife came to the hospital and did some emails for me on my phone. She went home at 4 with my phone because she doesn’t like going into a parking structure in the dark.
So the rest of the night I drifted in and out of a drug induced stupor for the kidney stone pain until 3 am.
Then I came to my senses when the pain killer wore off. I realized that I had a closing at 10:30 in the morning. I wanted to get my clients some contact numbers in my office. Just in case there was a problem and needed to talk to somebody. They were both lawyers and the home owners weren’t moving out. So the walk thru before the closing really wasn’t an issue because a walk thru is really to inspect for damage.
I got nervous and wrote myself a note in the dark and laid it on my chest. I didn’t want to forget to get the information to my buyers. So after I got my next dose of pain relief I drifted off to sleep. I woke up again at 5 am. Now this is where my stupidity comes in.
I called my wife. Yes I CALLED MY WIFE AT 5 AM to have her get the numbers off my cell phone that was at home and email them to clients. I was nervous that I was going to drift off to sleep again and sleep through the closing.
My wife is a person that always comes through for me. She has never let me down. So when I called at 5 am I just asked her what she was doing. She said “nothing” like it was 11 o’clock in the morning. To give you a little more background. She never sleeps well when I’m not at home so she had just fallen asleep about an hour earlier. She patiently asked me if I was sure I needed to get the email off right now. She got up got the cell phone from downstairs and sent my buyer clients contact numbers of my brokers and other agents at 5 am.
She got up and did it because I thought it needed to be done right away. I was nervous that I would forget or that it might not get to my client in time.
Needless to say she has already brought this up several times to me already. So I don’t think she is going to forget that closing anytime soon. I just want my wife to realize how lucky I am to be married to her and thank her for putting up with me. And to say sorry.
