It used to really bother me if I found someone who didn't like me. But, after over 30 years in public life, I'm used to it now.
This week I'm taking shots on social media from a local man who took issue with one of my posts. It was when the Mac the Moose story started. I posted side-by-side photos of Norway's beautiful, shiny, silver moose and our Mac the Moose. The caption I wrote was, "Ya...no. We can't compete with that - on any level from any angle. They win. Let's move on."
Well, the local man didn't like that and he thinks I'm on the Mac the Moose bandwagon now. He's on Facebook writing, "Wow...the local news source that said we couldn't compete on any level, they win, move on...now cheering for the support for our city's icon. How cute."
I might call that man's comments facetious if this were a serious issue. But, that's the point. This is not a serious issue. It's about a moose made out of rebar and fibreglass. So, let's just have fun and keep it friendly, shall we?
