Finally she called in the big guns. Her father, who introduced himself on the phone as "Pastor E." And he was flying up from North Carolina on Friday, which would have been useless, as I suspect the office will be closed at noon that day. It usually is just before a Jewish holiday.
But he was coming up on Thursday, then. And they would get together and settle things in a "Christian manner." Yep. All of them. Him, his daughter. My boss, who is a synagogue treasurer. The agent, who is Israeli, and might well be en route home. And the landlord. Who is surnamed "Islam."
As I said. Deeply amused.
I also think that they will, in fact, settle things in a civilized fashion, and *that* will be due to my boss, who doesn't let anything faze her.
