I was talking to a friend the other day and he was telling me about the horrendous ordeal he has been going through. Someone known to my friend, seeking revenge for a perceived slight, was making up stories about him. They made my friend out to be this terrible person who did terrible things.
Well, it wasn’t true! My friend would never think of doing these things so horrible that I cannot even mention in this column. Yet, his reputation has been called into question and his job is in jeopardy because of the smear campaign this vindictive person has orchestrated through outrageous postings on social media. It’s been a nightmare for him. These have been some of the worst days of his life.
