For Pete's Sake!: Redux
Well, I've finally had my first troll. I didn't expect for it to hurt my feelings at all, but I do have to say it hurts my feelings a little bit. On this post someone decided to call me selfish because I want to get out of jury duty.
Well, of course I want to get out of jury duty. It's boring, unlike my job which I think is fun. Also, even though I try not to blog about work, as a rule, we've recently had lay-offs and so we're a little extra swamped because we've had to take on extra work (which I've done gladly and willingly), plus it's the end of the funding year so all kinds of final reports are due. This is the first weekend I haven't worked this month, and I've worked 10 hour days almost every day since the end of August. In addition to having a nasty head cold, which has tried to slow me down even though I can't afford to be slowed down at this point.
I haven't sent in a letter asking to be let off jury duty like I said I might. I think that if I'm called I'll gladly serve. It's my duty as a citizen. That's why I vote, too.
I don't know why I'm defending myself against someone who didn't even leave their name, email, or URL. They obviously don't care.
But hey, now that I've had a troll, I feel like I've really made it in the blogging world. Thanks for that, Anonymous.
