Murder in a building a week before the signing

Filed under: Drama & Tragedy,Popular on Facebook (very) — admin @ 8:58 am

A Notary was called to do a signing in a building that had experienced a murder. The Notary declined the job and claimed that the signing company was putting her in danger by sending her to the scene of the murder. Whose responsibility is it anyway?

Personally, I feel that since the murder already happened that the danger is over. I walked through fields in the South where horrible battles had taken place 150 years ago. Once again, the danger is over, although there might be a few lost souls who hang out there because the angels never rounded them up after they died. I’m not sure how that works.

So, should the signing company safeguard the Notary from going to a “dangerous place?” There is no official definition of a dangerous place unless the department of state recommends you don’t go to a particular country like Mexico or Afghanistan. Murders happen everywhere. I live in a good area and we had two murders within blocks in the last twelve years.

I think that an area where there are felons hanging out or regular problems could be informally defined as “dangerous.” But, one isolated event happening a week prior doesn’t phase me.

This reminds me of some woods near my house where a girl was raped 40 years ago. The residents became very cautious after the rape. I think their timing was wrong. They should have been careful BEFORE the rape. Women need to be careful in general, especially in isolated areas. This type of caution is like putting your seat belt on after the accident. The seat belt will do you more good if you put it on right before the accident — or better yet, always take precautions.

But, I don’t see anything dangerous about accepting this Notary job. In general in life, my friend Vasu always says that in the end — it is about trusting your instincts. And if you don’t have instincts, then hire someone who does!

Notaries need to be aware of the destruction of our planet & lives

Filed under: Drama & Tragedy — admin @ 8:09 am

In America, we seem to have it good. And we are oblivious to the problems that surround us. Native Americans are a lot more cynical and in touch with the negative aspects of American life. To many of them, America is a concentration camp where the land is sytematically raped over and over again and that has conducted many genocides and was a model for Adolf Hitler. The cruelty against the Lakota was a model that Hitler used for how to treat “inferior” races. White people are unaware of these realities as our history books skim over the horrors that our government did to Native Americans. Additionally, we whites are not the ones being pulled over all the time. And if Native Americans wrote the history books, they would most likely deny the plethitudes of raids on wagon trains that were part of the stimuli for governmental cruelty against Native Americans. Both sides evade the truth, but we can learn from both sides too.

Additionally, if you think that America is the land of freedom and that we should fight in other countries so that they can have freedom like we do, consider this. Native American dances have been outlawed until recently in America. How can America be free when you don’t have the freedom to dance? What a farce!

The dumbing down of American Notaries
The big corporations want to dumb down American to keep us subservient to them. They don’t want uprisings or anyone to challenge their supreme rule. These corporations and banks control the puppets we call government and control us in many ways as well. They do it partly by giving us medical care that keeps us sick, a school system that teaches us blind subserviance, media that controls how we interpret political events, and food that makes us lethargic so we don’t fight back or think.

1. Destruction of rivers, ground water, ecosystems, and land.
In our country’s effort to expand and make lots of quick money, there was a lot of destruction that took place. 60,000,000 buffalos were extinguished and the species went practically extinct. This was so some people could make quick profits on selling hides, and others claim it was a plot to make it impossible for Lakota people to survive on their own without being dependent on the government.

Oil companies routinely drill for oil all over the place. This includes in ocean water which leads to spills which are impossible to completely decontaminate. This includes pipelines which routinely leak which contaminates ground water and rivers which are tributaries to the Mississippi river. In fact, on Dec 15th there was a huge lead in North Dakota from a pipeline built in 1980 which leaked 180,000 gallons of oil into a stream. Pipelines in Alaska were put above the ground so that wildlife could still run around and not be confined. But, the extra expense of putting it above the ground was due to environmental activists. The oil companies are too unconscious, stupid and greedy to care about the long-term environmental damage they are doing. It is up to Notaries to let them know that we like planet earth and want to keep it clean.

People rely on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers for their drinking water. If even one tributary becomes polluted, the entire line of the river system becomes uneafe for human consumption. Oil companies would love to just trash all of our water supplies on a whim without a care in the world. It is up to Notaries to write to their congressladies and let them know that we ain’t gonna take it no more!

2. The medical industry is designed to keep us permanently sick & dependant.
Most of the medical drugs people take have side effects that can make you sick. Are you trying to stay sick or get better? The medical industry profits when you are sick, so it is in their interests to keep you sick. Take a closer look at whatever medications you are taking and make sure they are not making you stay sick. Also, see if there is a more natural way like acupuncture to stay healthy. But, there’s more. Chinese herbs can also make you sick. Herbs can be contaminated and have side effects too. Although Chinese medicine’s intent it to keep you healthy, it can make you sick too. Acupuncture seems to be a healthy way to stay healthy as it involves needles, not herbs grown in filthy Chinese soil.

3. The food industry is designed to keep you unassertive
The big corporations want to dumb down American to keep us subservient on them. They don’t want uprisings or anyone to challenge their supreme rule. These corporations and banks control the puppets we call government and control us in many ways. They do it partly by giving us medical care that keeps us sick, media that controls how we interpret political events, and food that makes us lethargic so we don’t fight back.

Soy is one of the biggest myths as well. Studies found that Asians were living longer because of soy products. But, soy products are horrible for males as they slow our metablism down and contibute to obesity. You can read more about soy online.

Wheat is yet another one of the most destructive foods known to mankind. In the 1950’s before wheat had been ruined through genetic modification, it used to have at least some nutrition. But, these days it is a source of empty calories which leads to obesity.

High Fructose Corn Syrup. Say no to this non-food. You are harming your body and increasing your chance of diabetes drinking this. Drink only real fruit juice no matter how expensive it is. The fake stuff might be 30% cheaper, but it isn’t juice and it isn’t food. You get 15% juice for $2.80 or 100% juice for $4.00. Which is more affordable for your body? Remember, berries, apples, grapes, etc. are God’s medicine for your body. He created them for your arterial health. He didn’t create corn syrup for you to drink because he loves you. But, the big corporations are too stupid to get it through their heads that they should not be killing their customers.

Milk is good, but slows you down if you have too much. It has estrogen too which is not good for guys. We need the nutrition from milk, but the processing doesn’t do is much good. We should probably have a neighborhood cow named Bessy who could give us some warm fresh milk with no additives. Yogurt, cheese and other milk products have the same properties. Some nutritionists claim you shouldn’t have any milk if you want to lose weight. I am not an expert at this topic, but you can read about it online.

4. The media and school system
Our media reports what is going on in the world showing what they want to show us. Any source of information is inherently biased, and the media here is no exception. They can lead you to believe that Saudi Arabia is our friend and killed terrorists in Yemen while another source of media can prove that mostly hospitals, schools and children were the ones killed in Yemen. The media controls how you think, and you need to think outside the box and get a wider source of input to avoid being a zombie in the hands of the big corporations. Additionally, our school system doesn’t teach enough critical thinking. It doesn’t teach us how to see through the bullshit. We learn to unthinking and subserviant drones of big corperations. No entrepreneurial skills are taught which is why most people who own small stores in America are Pakistani, Arab, or Korean, but not American! However, the Notary industry is the other way around as we are mainly American born folks. The media is feeding you brainwashing just as the grocery store is feeding you food that enhances your state of lethargy, and your school system taught you to be a drone. It’s time to learn to think, people! And BTW, this lethargy is what holds you back from passing the 123notary certification test which is pure and unadulterated education without all of the brainwashing!

5. Now we know what is bad, but what is good?
Berries including pomogranites clean your arteries and were given to us by God. Hunter and gatherer societies were healthy because they ate more berries. But once mankind started farming, they ate more wheat and barley which slowed us down. Nuts (raw and unsalted please) are a great source of protein, vitamins, healthy fats, and minerals. Dark chocolate is yet another food with polyphenols that helps boost metabolism, has the highest concentration of antioxidants, improves you mood, and has been proven to help you be a better Notary (source unknown.) Vegetables and fruits in general are good as they have vitamins, minerals, fiber and other good energies that scientists haven’t been able to understand yet (but, I claim to.) If you eat lots of berries, you will have the strength to protest oil pipelines and save the planet. You’ll also have the strength to make more money, so you can afford more berries (which aren’t cheap by the way.)

Some tribes in Peru survived on a diet of Yams, Beans and Corn. Imagine living your whole life eating only three items. But, these are three healthy items and they are easy to farm as well. Root Vegetables are healthy and low in calories. But, don’t eat fries. Have a baked potato with the skin on. The skin has so much nutrition. I had a baked potato the other day and felt like a million bucks afterwards. Daikon, carrors, turnips, beets are all good root veggies.

What about alcohol?
Some people say that alcohol dulls the brain and is bad for you. In my experience beer does horrible things to your brain and makes you a dummie. If you combine our educational system with beer, you will end up with a completely useless excuse for a human being. Hard alcohol seems to do more damage to your body and arteries. But, red wine in small amounts is drunk by intellectuals and high class people in France, Spain and Italy as a cultural habit and they are smart (not necessarily hard working with all of the siestas, etc.) Red wine has resveratrol, antioxidants, helps you live longer, is good for your heart, and cleans your arteries so you don’t die of a heart attack when a borrower yells at you because they don’t like their APR>

6. Conclusion
The point of this article is a grass roots attempt to get humans here in America to understand that the oil companies are run by people who are NOT human. They don’t live on planet earth. And after they finish their systematic destruction of our planet, they will run back to their planet with all of the money they made off us. We humans do live here and need to protect our three most valuable assets namely: 1. Mother Earth 2. Human dignity, and 3. The blog at 123notary. The solution is to make it unprofitable to engage in the unclean harvesting of fossil fuels and for it to be economically viable to use solar energy. This can only happen if we write to our congressmen and demand:

a. Oil pipelines should be abolished. They leak regularly and the oil companies will not take long-term responsibility for the damage the pipelines do. Not only should new pipelines be banned worldwide, but existing pipelines should be dismantled as they are dangerous as our last 180,000 gallon North Dakota spillage incident proved. Additionally, those involved in government to allow such abominations should be fined and jailed along with those who participated in building these genocidal contraptions!

b. Off-shore drilling should be abolished. Those involved should be fined and jailed as we cannot bring the cleanliness of our oceans back to their original state. World destruction is a crime and should be treated as such.

c. Fracking creates huge contamination of ground water and contributes to the rates of cancer in areas nearby where fracking took place. Yes, fracking lowers the price of energy, but the cost is cancer and human misery. There much be a better way. Frackers should be sent to prison and fined. Or should receive a karmic punishment of being forced to live permanently in an area which they ravaged. Get it through your head that fracking is a fricking bad idea!

d. Solar, wind and other sustainable clean energy sources should be used to their fullest potential. As alternative energy production becomes more mainstream, there will be more competition to create the infrastructure necessary for its production, hence creating a lower price for this type of energy. Having more government incentives to stimulate solar paired with penalties for unclean harvesting of fossil fuels will create a worldwide change. America has lots of windy areas, and the American Southwest is one of the sunniest areas in the world. There is plenty of energy at our fingertips and there is no reason to destroy the earth.

e. Medical Drugs are often horrible for your body. By taking these drugs you create a culture of dependency much like the culture our government estalished in Indian Reservations where unemployment is as high as 95% and people are permanently dependent on the government. Americans have the same type of dependency, but on the drug industry. Don’t take medical drugs is there is a nateopathic safe way to stay healthy. Don’t feed the monster that wants to keep you sick and subjugate our species!

f. Food.Eat healthy food and make a policy to avoid soy, high fructose corn syrup, fries, wheat, and other unhealhty foods. Instead, try nuts, berries, fruits, vegetables, oats, responsibly farmed salmon, etc.

g. Teach your kids how to think outside the box. Teach them how to see situations from multiple points of view. Otherwise a Nazi style holocaust could happen right in front of your eyes and you will be duped into thinking that the Nazis are the good guys. And then ten years after the fact you will say, “I can’t believe I was so blind, how could this happen in America!” According to the Lakota people, genocide has been happening in America since the very beginning and is still happening in 2016. Wake up and smell the coffee — but, don’t put soymilk in the coffee, try non-GMO almond milk instead!

h. Buy a high position on 123notary.com. Don’t let the media brainwash you. Let me instead! Spend all of your money on 123notary! We’re a good agency because we don’t kill children in Yemen, we don’t destroy the earth drilling for oil, and we give good health tips! We’re good for you just like eating berries and turnips! Pass our certification exam, get lots of reviews on your listing, and let me help you write a great notes section at no cost!

And remember — the big and powerful people created the concept of God to control you. But, you should believe in God anyway, because without God consciousness, the devil will come in to replace him — and demonic consciousness leads to oil pipelines, narcotics, killing off buffalos and other bad things. It’s complicated!

Racial issues at a signing

Filed under: Drama & Tragedy — admin @ 9:36 pm

Shelly went to a Notary signing. The minute she arrived, she could feel extreme tension. The husband was listed as an entity on the loan application, but the wife was the one taking command. Shelly was (and still is) white, and the couple was black. I’ve done hundreds of signings in black homes and without issue — however, those signings were done before people had a reaction to Donald Trump’s political presence.

Racism was at an all-time low from around 1997 to mid 2015. And then it started up again. There were more protests, riots, clash between minorities and police, the Black Lives Matter movement, etc. But, during the last few months of 2016 it turned violent. I witnessed people being beaten in the street over race — strangers beating strangers with no provocation. Can we blame Donald Trump for this insanity? After all, he has done nothing to anyone (yet) and was only speaking his mind in his own non-sugar coated way.

The husband and wife started going through the Loan Estimate. They went through every fact and figure with a fine toothed comb because they had prejudged that something must be wrong and that everybody was out to get them including the Notary, Lender, Donald Trump, Title, Escrow, and Sam down at the butcher shop (I made the last part up.) They were basically trying to confirm their baseless suspicions by finding something wrong with the paperwork.

When the Notary tried to smooth things over, the couple called the Loan Officer and commented about how terrible the Notary was. The Loan Officer failed to return the Notary’s calls but called the party that hired them for the loan (whomever that was.) The Notary’s reputation had been slandered, tarnished, and she didn’t want to lose her client. Shelly’s reputation was on the line here for a crime she didn’t commit. Was racism to blame?

Shelly comments that if people are negative about the process from the getgo, they will create problems that weren’t there in the first place. Too true Shelly. I agree completely. But, the main thing is to stay out of the loan. The loan is not your business. It is not up to the Notary to determine if there is something wrong with the loan. You just make sure they sign where they are supposed to and notarize the signatures.

Shelly has signed hundreds of loans for people of all communities in her area and treats people equally. It looks like she was not treated equally in return this time.

The moral of the story is, if you walk into a tense situation as a Notary — just do your job and don’t make comments. Be neutral. It’s not your problem. If someone fires you for reasons beyond your control, just state your side of the story and it is their loss if they lose you because you are a good Notary who did nothing wrong and has a 99.9% accuracy rate (or so you claim.)

I’d rather stop being a Notary than carry a gun

Black vs. White Notaries = benign, but the comments were hateful

I live in a multi-racial neighborhood. We have Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, and even a few Christians (when we allow them to come in). We have black, white, yellow, brown, red, and even a few green people who fly in from time to time when their spaceship breaks down.

People on TV can joke about race. Eddie Griffin does so unashamably, so does Eddie Murphy, and a few other Eddies. How come they can exercise their freedom of speech without a hateful backlash? Have you ever thought about the double standard I am talking about here? I joke about everything. I value my freedom of speech too. But, the commentary to my Black Notaries vs. White Notaries was just hateful considering my blog entry was gentle and not demeaning to anyone. We (my comedy writer & I) joked about the same things black comedians joke about. Do I have to get a race change and be a Michael Jackson in reverse to have cultural permission to do the same thing?

The reality of the race situation is that law enforcement and young black males are having a prolonged and unofficial civil war. This is more than unpleasant. It is dangerous for all of us all even though most of us are bystanders. I have read that many higher level rabble rousers are arranging for more violent riots. Violence and hateful commentary on my blog doesn’t solve anything — it just creates more tension and more problems. Perhaps these hostile comments I received reflect the very attitude why we are having a serious problem with race in America. America practices racism, accuses everybody in sight of being racist, yet we lack the ability to have an open and honest discussion about race, culture, or just tell a few jokes.

Some Americans get almost violent when you bring up particular topics. This attitude is a direct threat to our freedom of expression which our forefathers risked or gave their lives for. If you react so violently to harmless jokes, perhaps that is a reflection of your own inability to accept America’s racial situation for what it is. We are forced to live in it daily, but culturally prevented from saying anything open about it. Should you send ABC or the New York Times hate mail every time they publish a piece on race?

It is amazing that a blog article so harmless got such a hateful response. I think that some of you need to take a closer look at yourselves. On the brighter side, that post was one of our most popular comedy posts ever, and people referred it to their friends since they were so shocked. The bottom line is that I can joke about whatever I like, and you can be polite about it — can you dig it?

Artificially inflated rates at a signing

My rate shouldn’t be this high!
I had a loan signing once for a lady where I looked at the documents and the interest rates printed seemed unusually high. Before I had her sign the papers, I asked her what the loan officer had told her, and she couldn’t remember what the interest rate was that she had been told. She rummaged around in her purse and found a slip of paper where she had written it down and it was definitely different from what was printed on the documents. I tried calling the lender and couldn’t reach them. I left a message but we never heard back from them so we cancelled the appointment and decided to reschedule. I took the docs with me as I left. Magically the next day, new documents showed up with the correct interest rates despite the fact that no phone call ever came through from the loan officer. We made an appointment and signed the next day. I was so glad for her that we had caught that mistake and got it corrected!

Falsely accused of murder
I had a jail signing where a woman was in jail and her fiancee was fighting on her behalf to get her out. Someone had gotten murdered and she was incarcerated, but she was actually innocent and happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The fiancee needed a power of attorney, and he was so well dressed that the guards thought he was a lawyer and he came in with me to see her to get the signing done. When they saw each other, they spoke and he just held and pressed her hand. She was so depressed and upset and sad. The jail had over medicated and sedated her for her depression which made the whole situation ever more upsetting. I felt really bad for them.

The vindaloo signing
I had a funny signing with a Caucasian woman and an East Indian man in my town. When I got there, the husband was quite grumpy because the title company had messed up the settlement statement. When I told him that my former husband was an East Indian man though, he suddenly lit up and got very excited! We went into the kitchen and he gave me a bunch of seasoning packets and told me where to buy the best lamb rack, and we talked about cooking. We ended up rescheduling the signing with the corrected documents and we ended up talking more about cooking then too and he sent me home with more food! It was a fun meeting!

An impersonator at a signing
I had a refinance once where I’m glad I listened to my intuition! There was a situation where the wife was bilingual, and the husband spoke only Spanish. She was the primary on the loan, and when I looked at the ids, hers looked definitely like her. Her husband’s id didn’t really look like the man sitting in front of me. He had a bandanna on that partially hid his head, and the picture looked similar, but I couldn’t really say that the id was really the same man in front of me. I was skeptical but I took the photograph at face value as the wife assured me that this was really him. I started to proceed with the signing. At some point though, the man in front of me suddenly said, “ There’s a problem. This doesn’t match.” referring to the documents. At that point I realized that this wasn’t her husband since he clearly understood and spoke English. It was a friend. Not her husband. So I immediately stopped the signing, told them we were done, and walked out the door. I was so thankful that I was able to stop it, and that I had it recorded in my journal. I called the agency immediately and let them know what had happened.

Signing for a mother and daughter

Signing for a mother and daughter
The state was paying the daughter to provide elder care nursing to the mother.
The daughter had comingled their bank accounts.
The daughter asked the lender to make the terms of the loan allow her to live in the house for another year after her mother died.

The mother lost one foot due to diabetes and couldn’t walk because she didn’t exercise. The walker was in the back of the daughters closet.

An unfortunate Notary was called to notarize a loan for this mother and daughter “team.” The Notary gradually found out about the situation.

The lender didn’t return any calls to the mother, but only returned calls to the daughter. The mother considered cancelling the loan. The Notary advised her to strongly consider it and use the RTC form.

Most Notaries never see a situation so crazy as this. But, be prepared as they do happen.

Two guys with the same name; One cashed the other guy’s check!

Imagine your worst nightmare. Someone else with your same name. But, it’s not identity fraud if the person really is you, or at least shares your name. We had a Notary in Alabama and another Notary in Indiana who had this exact situation. I am not sure if their middle initial or middle name is the same, but the first and last were. They were both on the same database for several signing companies. The problem was that the guy in Alabama did a bunch of jobs for several signing companies, and then the guy in Indiana got paid for those jobs — and deposited the checks.

I actually personally know both of these people and remember a conversation I had with one of them three years ago. He thought his bill was too high and kept saying, Jeremy…. Jeremy…. Jeremy…. Jeremy… with this amazing tonality. He got removed from his high position because it was too much trouble to bill him. Now he has a free listing at the bottom of the list. He might not get that many jobs down there, but if he can get paid for the other guy’s jobs in Alabama, I guess it all works out just fine — for the mean time!

In any case, let this be a lesson to be learned. If you have children, and you have one of those standard type names like Jack Smith, or David Rutherford, consider a name change. Either change your last name, or name your children something that nobody else would name their kids such as Bullwinkle, Shakazulu, or Pleiades! Think in the future, and pick a name that is out of this world, or at least out of this constellation!

I’d rather stop being a Notary than carry a gun

Notaries have very conflicting attitudes about carrying guns. Some are violently against it, while others just see guns as a fact of life. For people growing up in Haiti or Israel, there are people with machine guns everywhere. It is just a fact of life. But for Americans, guns are not so common unless you are a gangster, or drive a pick up truck in a red state. So, how can Notaries defend themselves?

(1) Some Notaries let their husband know where they will be and to call the police if they don’t hear back from them by a particular time.

(2) Other Notaries carry pepper spray. Pepper spray is nice because you don’t do any real harm to the victim. It is not expensive, and not difficult to use. Additionally, you can use it on dogs. In my experience, dogs are more of a realistic threat to Notaries (and mailmen) than humans

(3) Some Notaries always place themselves between the signer and the door so they can run if the going gets rough. You would be surprised how much anger the APR can cause!

(4) At 123notary, we recommend getting advanced training in Okinawan Japanese style Notary-jitsu. Notary-jitsu teaches you how to defend yourselves from the tactics of violent borrowers. You learn to protect yourself from knife attacks, beatings, and small dogs that say “yap.” Yes, this all-inclusive training could save not only your life, but your dignity.

(5) Having a gun. Guns are dangerous. If you use a gun, you will end up in court, and possibly in jail. I am not convinced that having a gun is a good idea, however, in dangerous areas, you might not have a choice. Even in “safe” areas, you could encounter trouble at any time. There are many psycho people out there. They don’t come out all at once — only when you are not expecting it. For some reason, our local taco place has the nicest employees, but the freakiest customers. I have had to call the police once, and on another occassion a woman was beaten so that the thief could steal her mobile phone and then casually walk away — not run, but walk away.

A gun could save your life in an emergency, but pulling a gun could also get you shot. If you can’t pull your gun in time, the gun won’t save you either. Or if someone has you at gunpoint, it is too late to draw. It is up to you to figure out what to do.

(6) Bringing a large flashlight
I used to have a huge flashlight with me when I was doing pizza delivery back in the day. Military flashlights are the only method for being able to read the numbers on someone’s house. They can also be used as a weapon. I used such a weapon to kill once. Don’t get your hopes up, the victim was a rat, not a human. The rat had invaded my bedroom and jumped into bed with me and then ran away. I cornered it and herioically bludgeoned it with a bash to its head. It was all over in a second. He/she felt no pain.

(7) If you were Crocodile Dundee you would bring a huge knife to the signing table. If the signer offered you an apple and was cutting it with a knife, you could say, “That’s not a knife — THIS is a knife!”

It is up to you what types of weapons you use. In my opinion, all women should know some type of self defence. If someone has you from behind, you should know how to stamp on their food and elbow them. You never know when trouble will come, but you should be ready.

The husband was on the run the wife explained

Filed under: Drama & Tragedy — Tags: , — admin @ 1:17 am

One notary was assigned two loan modifications from two companies for the same town. The Notary communicated by phone with the signer(s). The wife explained that they couldn’t sign the loan because the husband was on the run. She had no idea where he was. Personally, I think life would be a lot eaiser if men came equipped with a GPS chip embedded in their forearm, but it doesn’t work that way — at least not in 2015. Perhaps with Obamacare we’ll all be chipped in a few years and have the government know where we are and what we’re doing.

In any case, the Mortgage companies didn’t accept no for an answer and demanded that the Notary do the signing. But, how can you do a signing if nobody is there to sign?

Signer on the run….
Signer on the run…
Can’t complete the signing

Have you ever been tempted not to go into a borrower’s house?

We are all under pressure to make a living and please our clients. But, sometimes you have to use common sense as well. Notaries are called to do signings regularly. You don’t know the condition of the house or neighborhood until you get there.

If George Carlin were a Notary, he would say that going to notary jobs in decrepid homes makes you feel good twice. When you accept the notary job you say, “I’m making money.” When you open the front door and run for your life you get to feel good a second time and say, “I’m saving my life!”

By the way, how’d you like to be a leftover? If they were taking people out to be shot I wouldn’t mind. I might even volunteer! Sorry, my childhood memories of Carlin’s tape stuck in my brain I guess.

Anyway, we have a story about a notary who knew Carmen. This took place years ago. She went into a house that was so filthy, she contracted a serious bacterial infection and had to be quarantined in the hospital. It was like having Ebola. It was called Legionaire’s disease and it was life threatening.

Other times, the house has rats, or other unclean animals running around. Sometimes it is the humans who give you the creeps. Carmen did a job years ago for some guy with long toe nails. Every time he walked around you would hear the click click click of his toenails.
