"Could we just get back to Swiss Miss Sissy, please?"
First of all, it's usually gratifying to get feedback- we get so few comments- but instead of being pleased to know that someone was anxious to read the next chapter of the story, I was mortified that they felt the need to disparage Rosie's contributions to the blog at the same time. And then when I called them out on it, they got super defensive and pretended they were, "just asking a question," which I found to be incredibly insincere. Rosie has nothing to do with "Swiss Miss Sissy," so there would be no reason to ask a question like that on one of Rosie's posts unless it was to express disinterest in their writing. You'd have to be a moron not to see how rude that was.
Look, I realize not everything that's posted on this blog is going to be everyone's cup of tea- clearly, not everyone has loved "Swiss Miss Sissy"- and I know I've been pretty bad at sticking to uploading chapters on a timely basis- but we all do this stuff for free with hardly anyone even bothering to leave positive comments. Disrespectful, entitled trolls we don't need.
Anyway, I declared that I'd be refraining from posting the next chapter for yet another week because of this guy's attitude and intimated that it could be longer if they kept it up,which they did, so here we are. It's probably unfair of me to withhold the story from everyone just to try to teach one jerk a lesson, but I was just pretty miffed at the time. I wish I could have taken it as well as Rosie, who didn't seem perturbed by the hater at all.
I should add that I'm just speaking for myself here and not anyone else. I'm probably giving one anonymous coward way more attention than they deserve. When Bambi gave me the freedom to post this story as I saw fit, I'm pretty sure that my using it as part of a petty power trip was not what either of us had in mind.
Incidentally, Bambi, if you're reading this, if you could send me an email when you get the chance, that would be great.
Okay, enough blah, blah, blah from me. You guys have waited long enough, so here is the next chapter of SMS...
