It’s 2am, I just finished the previous blog entry, my neck hurts, I’m tired but not remotely sleepy… so I might as well go ahead and do another entry and discuss why I’m so worked up about my attorney’s lack of communication lately. 😒 I’ll just schedule it to post in the afternoon when I’ll hopefully still be sleeping. (I’ve thought on this, and I’ve decided that I’m going to make today only a partial work day.)
It was probably a month ago that I let him know that it might be impossible to get one of the tax refunds, due to the IRS requiring documents that I didn’t have. But shortly after that I let him know that the issue had been resolved, and that the money for both refunds had been deposited in the estate account, so everything was square. Nothing else needed to be paid out or deposited, so I just wanted to know what the next step is.
So I had called once, then I actually stopped by and left a note explaining that the accounts were settled as they should be, along with a printout of the last two required deposits, then I called and left another message on the general office voice mail, and then a week or so later I left yet another voice mail on his direct line. So things had been taken care of about a month ago, yet every message that I’ve left since then has gone unanswered… so I’m left here waiting for guidance on what comes next.
Like I said in the last message I left him… if there’s something else that I need to do, or anything else “official” that he needs to do in order for me to close the account, just please let me know. I just want to be in the loop, even if the answer is “I still have to file several TPS reports and it could take up to six months.” just let me F’ing know. 😑 And alternatively, if everything is good and I can split and close the account tomorrow – then great… just let me F’ing know. 😠 I honestly can’t think of a single good reason why they would be ducking me like this, but I’m still hoping that there’s just been some sort of miscommunication and it’s not intentional.
And I know that I probably haven’t been the easiest client to work with, since I’ve had a few questions and hiccups here and there throughout the process… but I also know that I’m not the dumbest asshole that he’s had to work with either. Meh… it won’t be today, but sometime this week I’m going to be going there to find out what the problem is. 😠 I’m gonna try not to get loud, but someone in that office better be able to answer some damn questions and get this friggin’ train ride moving again. It’s so close to being over, and this time it’s not me that’s leaning on the brake. 😒
