Dear Anonymous,

Thank you for the insightful comment you left on my last post. Unfortunately, I had to delete it, because, dammit, I don't like bad language on my blog. I'm sorry you feel so strongly that "nannys are the scum of the universe" (actually, the correct spelling would be nannies) and that we don't know how to raise children. I disagree, but of course I am a bit biased.

Anyway, I would have contacted you privately, but of course you didn't leave any personal information. But I would like to say thank you for the comment, I appreciate your opinion, but please don't come here again.

Love,
Nanny

What? I hate trolls. Why don't they go and do something productive instead of being trollish. Ugghh.

The Nanny said...

Trolls--that's a brilliant name for them. I sooooo wanted to go all out at "Anonymous" but then, as my mother would say, I would be sinking to their level. (Wow. That may be the first time in my life I haven't sunk to their level. I'm quite proud of myself, actually.)

Sigh. People are nuts. And some of them are the scum of the universe, but you're definitely not. Hugs!

Minivan mom said...

Wha?!? I obviously missed it, but 1. how could nannies be the scum of the universe? I think anyone willing to dotingly watch children who are not their own are saints! and 2. snarky anonymous posters suck.

Monica H said...

I don't know what "Anonymous" said, but I don't understand why people feel entitled to write mean and hurtful comments. I understand this person may have had a bad experience with a nanny, and they are entitled to their opinion. However some comments need to be kept quiet especially when it can potentially offend someone else. You are so not the scum of the universe Nanny! I hate people like that.

Oh, please please please, do I have your permission to stoop to their level?

The Nanny said...

Stoop to their level, Monica H! And have fun!!!

Thanks for all the support, guys. Y'all are too sweet :-)

Man I missed it! I always love those bad comments. It is sad that people really are that bored they have to leave rude comments on peoples blogs. It cracks me up! Go find something else to do!

Sara said...

Plus I would have to agree with minivan mom. How could ANYONE that offers to take care of someone else's kids be scum? Plus who in their right mind would let "scum" take care of their kids. Oh well...

You rock!

So sorry that you had to deal with that. If you ever track the person down and need help...I'm always at the ready with my beating stick. ;)

Sidera, I love you, but you're a freak. I mean that in the best way possible. AND my GOD what I wouldn't give to be able to manage softball. Tell you what--I took a new morning job for next semester (since I won't be in class in the mornings anymore). SO the softball team needs to pool their (rather large) allowances and match my current weekly salary, and I'll quit my nannying job, and come manage softball full-time! Woot! Whaddya think??? Tru, Zanzi, D? Y'all listening?
