define 'difficult'

i just called a guy to set up an interview for his long term care insurance plan. He's a realtor in an upscale community and so I was surprised when he answered the phone with "Is this the Easter bunny?"

"No Mr. G, but I would like to hop over to your house, if possible, today, to finish up your application for long term care insurance. It will only take me an hour."
(IF you don't bust my chops and make it difficult, I'm thinking).

He game me directions and so I'm headed there in a few minutes.

I went to confirm the appointment with my company via email when I noticed an email regarding the same man. It read: Per the insurance company: "DO NOT CALL THE APPLICANT TO SCHEDULE--please call the agent, Elaine, instead, as the applicant can
be difficult. Elaine's cell is XXX-XXXX.

I think I'll call Elaine and let her know I'm on my way.

I found the guy sitting out on his porch waiting for me. I have no idea what that agent was talking about as the man was focused and concise with his answers. At the very end, he gave me some words of wisdom.

'Each of us are born with our individual strengths and weaknesses, and the MAIN thing in life is to discover your strengths, use them to benefit yourself and others, and and not allow your weaknesses to dominate or get you down. When you mess up, say 'so what' and just keep going. SO WHAT!!!
