Daughter is being bullied by a stupid old man from a business association in Exeter. He has made her cry. I would like to beat and kick and pummel him until he begs for mercy. How dare he? (How unprofessional is he?)
What makes a man think it's okay to yell down the phone at a young woman for half an hour?
I was in a bad mood before; now I am positively murderous. You don't mess with a mother and her cubs - especially not a mother with hormonal disquiet.
