Served Papers

We got served some court papers this morning.   
That server guy - he seriously has a pretty awful job.  
He just gets to give people bad news over and over again all day long.  
I wonder if he catalogs people's reactions?
I be there are categories like:
Relieved that it finally happened cause we knew it was coming
Total shock and dismay (me this morning)
I can't believe this is happening
This is a mistake
Total Anger
Quiet Reluctance

That's all I can think of but I bet there are lots more.  
He could probably write a whole book with stories of his experiences.
And make a million dollars. 

By the way, who rings the doorbell two times at 8:30 in the morning?  
My kids answered the door.  They should know better!
Don't answer the door to strangers.  But there they were - "come on in Mr. Stranger Man who is going to kill mommy's morning!"  

I may appear rather calm.  I think I finally am. 
I've been told by the responsible parties (definitely not me) that it shouldn't have happened and is a mistake.  (denial category?)
It has nothing to do with anything we've done - we were just being informed.  
Thank you Mr. Server/Informant man for seriously putting a downer on my day.

Mare, my hubby would tell you that one time when he served some papers the lady actually hugged him! It's not always bad but sometimes it can be a dangerous job, too. He doesn't do that job much anymore, though.
