    Fred, kill yourself! I mean that literally. My boyfriend almost lost his life today because of human nature. Falling asleep behind the wheel because he works third shift. Try knowing the actual story before blurting out something stupid. Try keeping your dumb assumptions to yourself as an accomplishment to start your day. Build from that!

      So you want me to kill myself because your boyfriend drove in an unsafe condition? Please elaborate.

      Honestly, you were out of line. Fred’s pretty disrespectful, but I’m not sure how you’re any better …
