@Jolene_ALa I met him once super briefly in the 90s. Very kind and nice even when clearly rushed.
Ever just had one of those days?
I actually woke up in a good mood… I know… try not to be shocked. It lasted about a 1/2 hour.
When I got to work, as my system started up, there was a notice of an email on my Gmail account which pretty much assures it relates to my writing. It was, and while I won’t go in to all the details, I was being falsely accused of ripping off content from a site for one my paying jobs.
I was floored, angry and just generally pissed off. I acknowledge similarities in the work, but due to the style of work, that is inevitable that it would seem similar to SOMEONE, but that’s just life.
I jumped on the phone with a friend of mine who is in the law field, she looked at the accusation and laughed. She assured me there was nothing to worry about, and it appears she is correct. It is, however, still frustrating to see your name dragged around in such a way when you are 100% innocent. It’s one of those things that is almost impossible to prove sadly.
Oh well, my boss is satisfied I’m innocent, and that is really all that matters at the end of the day to me.
