I was going to confess in detail to having done something a little bit similar to what Timmy boy did, but it’s way too hard to explain. Basically I blew up at a bunch of adults and kids in the pool that is right outside my door because earlier that day I thought I saw one of them smashing up some pool furniture.

It was just the straw that broke the camels’ back for me on a particularly bad day. Deeply ashamed for my loss of control.
