It’s amazing how people will say “Don’t do that,” after they’ve scared the stuffing out of me and I’ve screamed. They think I don’t respect their poor nerves.
I identify with a charming and heroic BBC character, Margaret. She was portrayed by Catherine Tate in a past comedy series, and I hope Margaret is still around. I’ve seen her only on YouTube.
On behalf of high-strung individuals everywhere, I officially shout, “Oh, go (expletive) yourself!” to people who slam doors, drop heavy boxes instead of placing them gently on the floor, leave sound devices at the full-blast volume when they turn off the music (you know what happens later, don’t you?) and cause my cell phone to ring.
Give ’em hell, Margaret.
