We’ve all been there. You think you’re out on a date with a lovely woman, then shortly after things become intimate, you’re scammed out of a large percentage of your savings by what turns out to be a cunning sex worker. Or, you find out the guy whose been training you to become a professional wrestler was just an aggressive gay man, who fooled you into joining him for ‘wrestling practice’ in his grandmother’s basement. These of course are just everyday examples of things that happen to many of us, but things like this can often incite feelings of intense rage.
Like most of us, I’ve gone through dark periods when I’ve had murder on my mind, but in reality, I don’t think it’s something I’d ever be capable of. Rage is a funny thing – when acted upon, it can often have deadly consequences. For example, you might experience uncontrollable anger after you’re refused service at your favorite fast food restaurant because you’ve been falsely accused of lewd behavior in their bathroom. Some might use this anger as an excuse to pick up a hitchhiker, bring him out to the woods, and cave his skull in with a large rock. Although hitchhikers are easy targets for murder, this should never be your response.
It’s important for all of us to know how to channel our dark emotions, however, it seems like some of us are left with no choice. If you must commit murder, don’t make the amateur mistake of taking out a life insurance policy on the intended victim. It might seem like a ‘two birds with one stone’ type of situation, but it will only lead to suspicion.
In closing, I’d like to say that murder is never the answer. So, next time you’re criticized by your mom’s boyfriend for refusing to drive him to his son’s funeral unless he buys you lunch and provides you with a full tank of gas, don’t act upon your deadly murderous instincts. Learn from everyday situations like this, and remember that some people are unreasonable and lack common sense.
