I have a pretty random question to ask. Why is it that auctioneers talk so fast and is it a requirement with the job?
I am only asking because I have not seen a single auctioneer yet that cannot at least talk semi fast and I would think that for someone that does not talk fast or project their voice well would have a major problem trying to obtain an auctioneers license.
I guess there are a lot of behind the scenes stuff that goes on at an auction house and that this may be more important than the actual auction itself. However, it seems like auctioneers are relegated to being targeted towards certain people that have certain qualities and does not seem like anyone could do it or even just get their license.
