Tale of a Texas Notary
Texas is known as a state for independent thinkers andpeople who do things differently.
In one particular case, a Texas notary got to a signing only to be invited into the living room to find that there was no place to sit. “Ya’ll sit down,” the client warmly invited the notary. The room was filled with junk and papers, but there were no chairs or tables, yet this was where the client insisted the notary take the acknowledgment and perform her other duties.
One of the stray newspapers was 20 years old; a match in that room would have caused the end of the signing and more. Old milk bottles and the crates they had come in lined one wall. There was also a collection of whiskey bottles, some empty and some not. Scrap metal, old Chevrolet parts, and an old Kelvinator refrigerator were other memorable items. A saw and a hammer and nails lay on the floor, but there was no project being worked on. As it was, the notary had to sit on a stool and put all the papers on her lap, putting one document after another underneath the pile as they were signed. Despite the clutter, the notary persevered and did her job.
The fee our Texas notary could charge for this? An acknowledgment in Texas is $6.
