More sage advice from J. P. Donleavy's The Unexpurgated Code: A Complete Manual of Survival and Manners:
"Never throw a thoroughly wasted tantrum. When this kind of energy is expended you want an audience. Although explosive outbursts are generally the prerogative of the boss of a privately owned corporation they should be tried now and again by underlings who enjoy toying with being fired. There is nothing more satisfyingly fulfilling than hearing and seeing devastation wrought from your violence. Especially at another's expense and inconvenience. But fury when intense can quickly become a peril. Be careful striking hard or explosive objects or others which may ricochet back. And always make sure the walls are paper thin before attempting to perforate them with your fists."
The book is chock full of nuggets like those, the kind that help a true gentleman bulldoze his way over the delicate origami paper cranes and freshly sodded lawns of a politically correct world.
