I’m not sure if there are any additional ‘mads’ in the movie title but you get the idea. Anyway, I am officially convinced the entire world has gone completely mad. If not the entire world, than most definitely my entire neighborhood.
Picture this: You walk into a store to buy a box of gum. Unknown to you, a package of mints falls into your coat pocket. As you go to the register to pay, you suddenly notice the mints. The clerk says, “You need to pay for those mints.” What would be your reaction?
A. You are mortified and apologize profusely.
B. You act confused, mumble that you have no idea where they came from, and put them back.
C. You start screaming at the clerk that you have every right to take them.
I’m willing to bet that no one reading this would say they chose “C.” Only a crazy person would scream at the clerk because, even though it wasn’t deliberate, you were technically shoplifting.
Suppose you parked your car, blocking someone’s driveway. The homeowner comes out of the house and tells you that you cannot park there. Again – do you start screaming at the person or do you apologize and move your car?
Yes, you guessed where this is going. For two consecutive days, I was screamed at by women who blocked my driveway. I just don’t get it…
