No good deed goes unpunished



I made the front page of the local paper today. Its really no biggie - I've been (mis)quoted before. Besides, no one really reads the local paper anyway. I was actually trying to do a coworker a favor. When the reporter called the other day, I took the call for her, as said coworker was trying to avoid a potential conflict with this issue. I didn't think it was a big deal at all.

But, apparently this has turned into a heated political issue. And I just took a call from a news channel who wanted me to do an on-camera interview. Thankfully, we have a policy that only the admin department can authorize those types of interviews. And I'm having a terribly ugly hair day.

Which paper? I don't take the paper - but I want to read it online!

The articles are pretty boring, but here's a couple of links:

1. It cracks me up that the mayor's name is Howard Johnson.
2. I hope you didn't get in trouble! How were you misquoted?

I've been misquoted too many times to count. Sadly it have never been in anything as exciting as the trib.

I can't imagine you with a bad hair day! have a good weekend.
