Swamp People Sighting

swamp people juniorToday (4/2/14) was all about Swamp People. It was also long, exhausting, fairly lucrative, nerve wrecking, and even sort of fun. Wow, sounds dramatic, doesn’t it?

Swamp People Sighting- I headed way down the bayou to Thibodeaux, LA to notarize a seller’s package. Basically, some rich people were selling their home in St Francisville. I brought the selling documents to their office to sign. They got a bunch of money. I made enough to cover gas. But the great part was that I saw Junior Edwards from Swamp People at a gas station along the way. We nodded at each other in the store, and that was about it. My boy wishes I would have taken his picture, but nah, seeing him was cool enough.

Long- It was a really long day. I realize that I’m just a traveling notary, and not exactly doing anything physical, but driving all day and focusing on hundreds of pages hurts my little brain sometimes. I think I started around 7:00 this morning, and I didn’t really finish until around 10:30 tonight. That’s a long day, right?

Exhausting- Yeah, my brain is tired. The Taco Bell I got earlier has been putting me to work in the bathroom all night too. TMI? I’m just tired.

Fairly Lucrative- I made some money. I think I had a total of 8 jobs today. I traveled to Prairieville, Thibodeaux, Port Allen, and all over Baton Rouge. I burned a bunch of gas, but the family gets some money for the efforts. I notarized some loan refinances, cash sales, auto transfers, servitudes, contracts, and power of attorneys. Cha ching, sort of.

Nerve Wrecking- I dealt with a commercial customer today. They used to be a frequent regular, but they stopped calling me maybe four months ago. Something happened, but I have no idea what it was. Today’s meeting was awkward for sure. I notarized a bunch of servitudes for them, and only a few words were spoken. Weird.

Fun- Yes, despite my late night complaining, I had a lot of fun along the way. I almost always do. For the first time in my adult life, I can truly say that I love what I do. That’s a great thing.

Thank you for reading about my notary journeys. If you need a mobile notary in the Baton Rouge area that will come to you, feel free to give me a call any time at 225-907-5280.
