In the office at 7:15PM following up on a request for setting up loan servicing bi-weekly auto payments for someone who closed on their home purchase at 4PM today.

Let me immediately correct that. I'm used to the bi-monthly payment request, this home buyer actually wants his payments auto debited from his checking account weekly. We reviewed, it's what he wants, he's paid weekly. So at the closing table table he handed me a voided check and ask that I set up his automatic payments to come out of his checking account weekly.

Perhaps I should have told him to call customer service. I'm paid when a loan funds, the loan funded at 4PM. What the hell was I thinking, offering to do that?
