very stressful when you work to pull everthing together and there is no more extention to be had.

The fact is--dealing with a bank on ANY transaction is stressful, whether you are buying from one (REO), whether there is a third-party approval required (short sale), or just when you go through the process of applying for a mortgage--it's always going to be stressful.
When I have buyer clients who wish to make an offer on a short sale or bank-owned property, I pre-screen them for all of these very normal contingencies which DO occur--they virtually always occur, and this is what your representative should have been coaching you on. If you chose not to have representation on a short sale purchase, well, that would not have been a great decision.
There is a reason there are professionals in this business--knowledge is power...experience essential!
There appears to be more behind your question than you are revealing. What's up?
Is there more?
Previously posted question
However, whenever I am working with short sales or foreclosures I always run into this. The banks take their good -natured time, but once they accept and decide to go forward, the time frame in which to do so is usually unreasonable and then we have to ask for extensions. I'm assuming, when you say "selling realtor", you are referring to the agent for the seller. In reality, the selling agent is the agent who brought the buyer.
Not sure what you are referring to when you said, "personal internal extensions between the seller and us..." Do you mean the contract between the listing agent and the seller? Are you referring to dates and deadlines in the offer to purchase? Some clarity would be helpful.
But, no, it is not normal, nor is it excusable.
