Think Linda made all the points that needed making. And, I, like Linda and you, would have completed it as quickly, far away and touchless as possible...and left her with a nice pen, too.

I did do one where the lady had 'something', but she greeted me wearing a mask and rubber gloves...hubby was a doctor & offered me a nice pair of rubber gloves like they were wearing (I accepted)...they still both got nice pens, too.

If you don't value your time and experience, nobody else will.

Sounds like this signing needs to get cancelled, or at least wear a mask.

I had a signing yesterday that put me in a bind. When I got out of my car, one of the borrowers came out of her house holding her hand to her mouth. She said she just came home from her doctor a few hours before the appointment. The doctor told her that she had contracted mono and was

I know you can't catch mono without an exchange of saliva, but I had no idea at that point if she was going to cough throughout the signing and possibly passing the virus to me. Even if she coughed into her hands, saliva can spray a couple of feet, across the small table where I was sitting. I was also freaking myself out thinking that if she did cough and handled her pen and documents throughout, I would catch it. When she saw my apprehension, she tried to assure me that it should be okay if we sat outside.

I am not a germaphobe, as evident to the fact that I've resigned myself to the possibility of catching colds and flu from my kids every school year. However, the question is, should I have asked the borrower to call her loan officer to reschedule because of the risk to my health, and not being able to work for several weeks if I got sick? Or should I have continued like I did, and completed the signing as quickly as possible? Sitting outside on a hot and humid 86 degree day, and constantly smacking mosquitoes and scratching myself rounded out the torturous experience. :-(

Has anyone come across a situation like this?

Thanks!



Poor lady - and poor you!!

Sitting outside doesn't cut the risk - coughing and sneezing, as you said, can spread it too. ANY exposure to her secretions puts you at risk.

That said, I'd probably have gone on and got it done anyway because I'm foolish like that - I'm already there. If this had to be canceled because of her diagnosis, they may have lost their rate, their loan and everything since it's so long-lasting.

Guess this is a good example as to WHY we should carry those masks - I might have made her wear one - or would have suggested it and told them I'd come back later in the day when they have all precautions under control. I might even have gone and bought some for her...lol

Hope you're okay. I, personally, have never run into anything like this.
