After reading Karen Paulson’s letter to the paper about how my letter to the paper was not necessary, I was a little bit confused.
I was under the impression that the opinion section of the newspaper was exactly the place to air my opinion.
I am thankful to live in a country where I have the freedom to express my thoughts and a forum in which to do so.
And, as a matter of fact, someone from both the tax assessor’s office and the Department of Motor Vehicles contacted my husband and me.
I really appreciated these supervisors getting back to me in a timely fashion to straighten out what had been a frustrating mess.
That may not have happened if I had not written a letter to the editor.
As I stated in my previous letter, I know people who work with the public deal with bad manners and disrespectful customers every day.
However, I take pains to be as polite as possible and treat others as I wish to be treated.
In other words, I try not to let my presence make things more difficult for anyone.
After my experiences in Lancaster, I was upset, and it made me feel better to write a letter to the paper. It was not my intention to “breed resentment.”
So, if I erred in writing the letter, I apologize.
I thought that was the whole point of a letter to the editor.
