Some people just can't help themselves. They just have to go just a little bit farther than the rest of us. Take this letter to a utility company, for example:
Hartford, February 12, 1891
Some day you will move me almost to the verge of irritation by your chuckle-headed Goddamned fashion of shutting your Goddamned gas off without giving any notice to your Goddamned parishioners. Several times you have come within an ace of smothering half of this household in their beds and blowing up the other half by this idiotic, not to say criminal, custom of yours. And it has happened again to-day. Haven’t you a telephone?
