I am a licensed notary. A man comes in one day and asks if I can notarized a document for him. I review the document and see that he and another person have already signed it. I there for cannot notarized it.

Me: I’m sorry sir, but unfortunately I cannot notarized something that has already been signed.

Customer: why not? I need this done today.

Me: the purpose of a notary is to witness someone sign.

Customer: can I sign it again in front of you?

Me: normally that would be fine but there is another person’s signature here as well. Who is this?

Customer: that’s my wife’s signature.

Me: is your wife with you?

Customer: no.

Me: sir, I cannot notarized the signature of someone who isn’t here.

Customer: this is ridiculous! I need this notarized today and I don’t have time for this!

Me: sir, I cannot and I will not notarize this document. By doing so I would not only be lying, but also putting myself at risk. I could lose my job or even be suid.

The customer just stood there holding the document in my face demanding I notarized it. I finally had to get my manager because he was making me so mad.
