As a notary signing agent, we are also master-planners. We take phone calls, set appointments, pick-up and deliver documents, catch FEDEX and UPS trucks, navigate traffic situations while printing docs, while waiting for that fax from escrow, while trying to choke down a quick bite.....
Then, the escrow officer calls and the docs are being redrawn with a change and are "coming soon", ......or some IDIOT in an f-350 decides to roll his truck and spill its contents across six lanes of freeway, ....or your borrower calls (if he is a courteous one) to say "I'm running late" and asks "I can use my credit card as my ID right?", ....then the school nurse calls to say your kid isn't feeling well and you just happen to be 180 miles away ......and another signing company calls and asks "Can you be there in 20 minutes, and print docs, and I'm faxing over your escrow stuff right now, that's ok right?..and by the way we only pay $45 is that OK?....and we need you to date everything yesterdays date...you don't have a problem with that do you?"
Do you folks out there believe this post is a complaint?
Heck NO! I LOVE THIS JOB!!! I thrive on this stuff. I can't get enough of it and hope it never ever goes away! I was made for this....Am I sick or what? :-)
