I filed the paperwork to be a Notary Public so I can notarize documents for my customers. I have no plans to do this for the general public, even at $6 per shot. It’s getting harder to find a Notary these days and it’s silly to pay six bucks to have this archaic witnessing done, but some things require it so here I am. Most of the places that have notaries are either direct or indirect competitors to my core business anyway.
I got my commission certificate via email today, so I am duly authorized, but I cannot (under penalty of law) perform my duties until I do one more thing: I have to get my notary commission certificate notarized.
And no, I can’t do it myself. I have to find a notary and pay six goddamn dollars.
