My personal favorite....
Signing service/closing agent sends a 150 page refi at 5:45pm for a 6pm closing that's 20 minutes away. Two copies needed to be printed.
After departing, the lender/signing service sends the 'other half' of what turned out to be a CEMA closing, "before the scheduled appointment" (5:59pm for that 6pm appointment) .
As a favor to the borrower (and with a substantial fee increase to the lender/service), we ended up finishing the signing at a diner until almost midnight, to avoid disturbing both of our spouses and children
Also, some banks print the PDF's as images, not text. Not to be overly tech-geek, but that takes a 35 page/minute printer and reduces its performance by orders of magnitude to just a few pages per minute.
