Of Mice and Men

10:25 - Client complains that his computer "freezes" and he can't use it.
10:26 - Mouse isn't moving. Everything works, however.
10:28 - After trying the mouse on my laptop (it didn't work), I tell the client he needs a new one.
10:30 - Client digs up an old mouse he was about to throw away recently. Plugged it in, it's good to go.
10:31 - Client hands me a $20 bill and praises me like I cured cancer.

If the day had ended right there, it would have been a good day. But then I come home and read this. How can a guy - respected by his peers, who had nothing but great things to say about him last night for his tribute show (especially about what a good family man he was) - do that? What the hell happened? No one may ever know. This vexes me, to say the least.

“You always rooted for him, because he was a good guy and he overcame the odds,” said Dave Meltzer, editor of the Wrestling Observer, a weekly news letter. “It’s like if you watched ‘Rocky,’ and in the end it comes out that Rocky killed his wife and his son.”
