John Y’s Musings From the Middle: Losin’ It

I rarely ever lose my cool. And even when I do, it usually goes unnoticed.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate someone who can “lose it” easily—and really put it to impressive uses.

Here is one of my all time favorite “losing it” scenes from one of my all-time favorite movies about the mindset of criminals.

And the consequences of provoking their sometimes hair trigger temper. Unforgettably played by Dustin Hoffman.

Oh, and let me forewarn you, I once had a college counselor 30 years ago suggest to me that I had a “low frustration tolerance threshold.” He may have been trying to tell me that one day I could be capable of doing this too.

Just giving fair warning.
