Wow. A UK partner just asked for a call to go over the closing checklist morning his time. No, I am not in the U.K. and no the deal is not closing this Friday. We are on the second round of drafts and the date has not even been set into drafts. I’ve been working to or past midnight every night. I ignored his note about wanting it his morning time and suggested 10am my time. I’m sorry but I’m not waking up at 4am to walk you through a closing checklist that is pretty self explanatory. 😒
