Notary shuts down biz because he cares more about lives than money

Filed under: General Stories — Tags: , , — admin @ 6:22 am

A Notary on Twitter claims that he shut down his notary business due to the Covid-19 virus. He claims that he did this because he cares more about saving lives than about making money.

But, if everyone stopped going to work to save lives, the supermarkets would be closed. The hospitals would all shut down. And all over services would not be available. What if someone would die because they could not reach a notary in time. Would you still be saving lives?

And you need to still make a living even if there is a disease going around. You can’t just stop living unless you are definitely infected — and in that case stay home for 14 days or so.

This notary was virtue signalling himself and patting himself on the back in a self-righteous way. But, he criticized me for being an immoral person for suggesting that he stay open. Later on he revealed that he hardly does any notary work anyway.

The moral of this story is that stopping functioning will not make this disease go away. Staying away from places where people are densely populated with poor ventilation might help. And social distancing might help too.



  1. Pfft! Must be nice to Not need money!

  2. Initially I didn’t want to go to others homes not feeling sure if they were taking all this seriously. After a week or so and after hearing that Notaries were essential I decided to limit the number of appointments I’d accept each day and limit the distance I’d travel. When I confirm the appointment I ask about their health, and recent travel as suggested by NNA. I let them know I will be wearing a mask and would appreciate them wearing one as well. I purchased pens to leave with client. I wear a mask and I make sure to sanitize before leaving car and returning to car. I don’t touch anyone’s doorknobs asking them to open door for me. I have had a few people who don’t feel the need to wear a mask and I do feel uncomfortable but I hurry and get it done. I thank God that I’ve not come into contact with anyone who exhibits any illness. If this happens I will NOT enter the home or complete the appointment. And yes I have increased my usual fee.
