Head Banger

A guy I worked with seemed like the most normal, average, every day kind of guy. EXCEPT when something did not go as planned. Then we would find him in the bathroom banging his head on the tiled wall (HARD) and muttering derogatory things about himelf such as idiot, moron, dummy. No one knew quite what to do about this, or how to approach him on it, until I took it upon myself at the Holiday Party...

Spouses were invited, so after I had imbibed in what was probably too many holiday spirits, I approached the head-bangers wife. I asked her "Does Tom bang his head on the wall at home, too, when something doesn't go his way?". I guess he didn't, because she looked shocked and horrifed, excused herself, grabbed him and headed out the door.

I don't know what his wife said or did, but the banging stopped.

That's actually kinda.....sad.

But anyway, SamWho?, don't you feel a wee bit guilty about the scene that must have gone down in their house after they left? Way to go spreading that holiday cheer.
