Hot Dog Heaven
Well, this morning I took my Notary Public test. I was very nervous. It was supposed to be an essay test & I never have very much to say. Heh. As I recalled from taking tests when I was in school a century eon many years ago, I was succinct almost to a fault. I had professors express amazement at my ability to answer the question in so few words. It worked well for me.
Today I sat down to take my three page essay test and finished about 12 minutes later. Now I realize that maybe I'm just fabulous – but I suspect that in this case it means I didn't know enough to answer the questions fully. We'll see. I'll find out in about 2 weeks. If I don't pass I can take the test again next month.
Once I pass the test I'm going to mail in the study guide they gave me. On every page I found about 5 – 10 typos. There were 19 pages – so that's almost 200 typos!! I think they had a hard copy of the document & scanned it in & used OCR software to turn it into a document they could edit (poorly) in a word processing program. It was very distracting and I plan to blame the typos if I don't pass the test. And then I'm going to offer to fix it for them. For a small fee.
In other news, I passed this on the road today.
Hot Dog Heaven. I'm skeptical. What do you think?
