My bad karma from testing people by phone

Ever since I have been bothering hundreds and thousands of Notaries by testing them by phone, I have had bad karmic consequences. All I want is quality control, and all I get is flack. I called more than 1000 Notaries to ask basic notary questions and document questions to see if they knew what they were doing. I got mostly complaining and wrong answers.

The results were that bad things kept happening to me.

The building maintenance guys came knocking on our door and insisted that the smoke detector was inspected. So, they decided to change it and now I am stuck with a much more attractive and shiny new smoke detector. What a bummer.

Next was that the building maintenance guys started knocking on our door again They claimed that our carpet was torn in the hall and that is was manditory that it was replaced. The next thing you know they put in this beautiful new carpet in our hall which doesn’t match the ugly beige carpet that has turned almost black from not being steam cleaned in a while. More bad luck.

Then, I went to New Mexico to receive the healing work of very benevolent shaman spirits who care for me. But, they did a little too much and now I wake up in the morning feeling ready to work for the first time in 33 years. No more sleeping late! I used to sleep until 1pm and could not fall asleep at night. That problem is over.

Next, a maintenance guy with a cocky attitude put new and beautiful caulk in my bathroom.

Then, another maintenance guy finally bolted my toilet down. It had been rocking for years.

And finally, maintenance finally fixed my squeeking door and greased the hinges.

Of all the bad luck. I guess that me fixing all of my Notaries (or kicking many of them off who are beyond help) is causing me to have the bad luck of other people fixing my broken things. But, what’s next? I can’t take this any more!

  1. Those Shamen Spirits can be expensive endevour,

    Consider: Good things happen to people when they make other people feel good.

    So: Perhaps calling a few dozen notaries and thanking them for their loyalty might initiate the “goes around, comes around” effict.

    And: You might ask them for their suggestions and opinions, how they feel they might get greater benifit from membership.

    Lastly: Goals and objectives, laudable as they may be; can fail, even backlash; depending on the implementation.

  2. Why do you feel the need to test your notaries, as you do? There seems to be mo rhyme, reason or mwthod to your questions. You operate a natary dirwctiry service. I had been signing up with your company since I became a NSA in 2010, until this past fall of 2017, when your assistanr told me that my rwbewal fee would 1k$, because you \felt\ I was not qualified to hold the #1 position in my area! Do you deserve bad karma? My vote is \YES\. YOU OPERATE YOUR BUSINESS WORSE THAN A RUSSIAN ROULETTE. Are you even a Notary, sir?

  4. I am a new notary in the state of AZ and was called and questioned before I could even say “hello.” I paid to have my listing advertised with your company. I was hoping to at least get a “hello” and/or “thank you for joining 123 notary.” Instead I was rudely questioned and when I attempted to tell you about myself you said “that’s not what I asked you”. I paid my money to you. Did I pay to be disrespected? Running a business is about relationships. Lasting relationships. Networking. Would it hurt to call and introduce yourself and say “hello my name is”, or “thank you?” I understand the perspective of quality control but being kind doesn’t hurt….

  5. Can’t help but feel the negative comments are from those that did not pass the simple test. JMO

  6. Agree Cathy! Answer the questions, and quit whining about it. Unless, of course, you can’t!
