Communicable Dis-Ease

I recently read a study proving you can catch stress from others. I could have told you that for free! Many years ago, I sublet space in a law firm that employed an attorney named Helene.* She was squat and perpetually angry. She’d waddle up and down the hallway between her office and the secretarial area squawking her catchphrases, ““Ladies! Ladies! Ladies! Who’s responsible for this?” and “We’re all going to be screwed because [her target d’jour] made a terrible mistake.”

I could feel my shoulders rise as she caterwauled and clomped along. I happily got out of there as soon as I could. She was as contagious as the common cold, and twice as unpleasant.

*That’s her real name. I don’t give a crap about protecting her.
