He labored at a job for 21 years after which he was fired. For 2 months after he was fired he sat in the dead of night in his room and chanted out loud to himself, “I need to die. I need to die.” Till, lastly, one darkish evening he had the strategy of his demise pointed at his temple, however since he’s a loser and a failure and afraid, he was unable to finish his personal life. And now he’s caught.
For many of these years he labored in a hostile work setting. His coworkers bullied him and judged him and demeaned him and diminished him. However they did it in a means that wasn’t actionable. They simply stated it was a matter of perspective. At instances he typically felt just like the Charlize Theron character within the film North Nation, besides he didn’t have an ailing Frances McDormand to talk up for him. And he is aware of that hundreds of thousands of individuals have suffered horrors a lot worse than what he has, however that doesn’t make his mistreatment okay.
Not too long ago the kid of one among his former coworkers spit venom and vitriol at him as a result of she was offended that he was complaining about how he had been mistreated. His coworkers typically attributed ideas and motivations to him that weren’t in him, however as soon as they determined he was a horrible, horrible, awful, no good particular person that’s how they handled him. They felt justified in hurting him repeatedly and irrevocably. Nobody ever defended him. Nobody ever protected him. Nobody ever helped him. Nobody ever believed him. Nobody ever believed in him.
However he’s a person. He’s not allowed to complain. He isn’t allowed to be damage. He isn’t allowed to be traumatized. He isn’t allowed to say #MeToo. He’s simply not allowed.
He has been faraway from the world. He’s alone and ready to die. He largely thinks of one thing Invoice Murray stated within the film Meatballs, “It simply doesn’t matter. It simply doesn’t matter. It simply doesn’t matter.”
