When I say they make me want to strangle them I don’t mean it as I really want to strangle them. They are infuriating me, irritating me beyond belief but I don’t mean it as I am going to lay a hand on them.
Instead I will lay a mighty bellowing upon them, as in I may yell and scream. Feh to the nonsense and to having to clarify that I am not talking about violence. That is not one of the good things modernity has brought forward.
