Just over a week ago, I related an anecdote about the producer’s assistant indirectly checking that the intern was doing her job correctly.
A lot of people took exception to the assistant’s methods. Final Girl’s comment was typical:
What a passive agressive moron. I hate people.
I have to admit, this surprised me. At the time, everybody in the office laughed at this assistant’s joke, including the intern.
This leads me to wonder, did I fail to convey the levity of the situation? Or are my readers correct, and the guy is actually a douche?
These are questions every writer must struggle with.
