I made this (joke) up yesterday.
“I have a friend who has a very short fuse, and he gets irritated very easily and quickly.
He suffers from premature exasperation”
This truly happened at Resurrection House today.
A guest, unhappy that I would not give her special privileges, called me an “asshole”.
I told the other volunteers: “this is true, but I don’t want to hear it from her”.
