Oh, brother

So I just got this very angry, rude email from a woman whose mother is on my site and she’s screaming at me about false information and inaccuracies when, as far as I can tell, there are none. It’s like she didn’t even bother to actually read the casefile, where I say exactly what she is claiming I didn’t say. What’s even stranger is that this woman has communicated with me before, asking me to add info to her mom’s file, which I did. I last heard from her four and a half years ago, which is when I last updated the file. I don’t know what her problem is now.

    Oh well, chalk it up to that woman having a bad day, a few too many “adult” sodas or a bad med day.

    You are safe to b_tch to since you are “faceless”.

    Welcome to the world of health care. I get daily doses of people screaming at me for 1) things I can’t control or 2) I have no idea what they want, and They aren’t making sense.

    You sure it was her? Could be someone looking to stir up trouble. Or maybe she is unstable or something. Sounds like she was taking out frustration on you.

    sounds like total frustration to me, I can only imagine if I had a missing loved one, and with each day that passed with no news. Try not to take it to personal, sounds like she needed to let off steam and I would guess you were just handy! You do a wonderful job and provide a great service to keep the missing out front.

    Maybe you shouldn’t give her the atention she wants by posting about it on the blog? If she really is the same woman who’s mother is on your site then she probably reads the blog too and if she is just a troll then you are giving her just what she wants.
    Even if she is for real she has no right to act like that. Having a sad life or something bad happen to you doesn’t allow you to treat others bad or disrespect them.

      I have communicated with this woman before so I don’t think she’s a troll. I also don’t think she reads my blog. As far as I can tell, if you assume all the people who read my blog also read Charley, only about 15% of Charley viewers regularly read my blog. Still, a risk to keep in mind.

    I know this is off topic; and you do not profile missing people from foreign countries, but the Toronto Star has a nicely written article on the 25 year disappearance of Nicole Morin
