We have probably all encountered them. These are people who get the bit between their teeth so tightly that they swirl like a dervish spontaneously increasing their passion and speed. The crazy person gradually loses all sense of etiquette, as they wind themselves up to a frenzy.
The crazy person involves other people in situations that aren’t their business.
The crazy person’s vital weapon is the phone. They will ring and ring, but always avoid email. Perhaps it would slow them down.
Regardless of whatever it was that incited their craziness, this person is now crazy because you didn’t return their call within 2 seconds of receiving their message.
Any normal function you might perform -- such as sleeping at night, taking a shower, speaking to another human, going out to buy food -- is a lie. You weren’t doing any of those things, but insulting them by refusing to take their call.
Is there a crazy person in all of us, just waiting to get out?
If so, then the behaviour of 56-year-old Keith Walendowski, who shot his own lawnmower, seems the saner way to go... ;)
