Sometimes newspaper readers simply cannot contain themselves and decide to take their frustrations out on lowly reporters and editors. Julia Dendinger, an assistant editor at the Valencia County News Bulletin, received just such a voicemail from one of her loyal readers.
It's always nice to get feedback on your work:
" … You're a dirty, dirty person and I don't care what you write, you're still dirty."#partylikeajournalist #endingtheyearonahighnote #atleastheusedthevoicemail

My guess is that this caller didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas due to a nasty attitude and lack of friends. Never fear though. The “dirty” reporters at your local newspaper will gladly take your calls and still tirelessly deliver your newspaper because they know you need something to keep you company and to fuel the rage that you have become addicted to.
