Tough love, African style


Bruno Putzeys:
A friend of mine had a visitor -a youngish man in his twenties- who first got plastered and then showed every intention of driving home. So my friend tries to talk him into either staying or being driven home by his host. After the boy refuses once more the host gives him this talking to:
"Kid, if you must kill yourself, show some respect for your friends. Choose a sunny day, go and buy a sharp suit and hang yourself where everyone can see you. That way we will know that this was what you wanted and how you wanted it. But don't do it by running into a tree in the dead of night, leaving your friends to bemourn the fact that they could have prevented it."
The boy hands over his keys and gets delivered home safely. The next day he phones to apologise for his intransigence.
