The Anger Management Game

     I got a free lesson in anger management. In fact, I'll share it with you, in the form of a game. Someone in that long list of web producers over there on the left in the On Deck Circle sent me the friendly piece of advice below, no charge. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to associate the lesson with the person. Use the Here's my guess dotcomments link below to make your guess. The first person to get it right receives notoriety in one of the hottest up and coming web magazines out there. I'm good buddies with the publisher. Got your thinking caps on? Here's one way to deal with anger:

     "Hi. I am here for my son's medical records."

     We can't release them.

     "Here is the power of attorney, the relevant statutes, and here is a letter ruling from the attorney general for the state of ..." [it's in the southwest. there's the first big hint]

     But we have to call the main office.

     "Okay, when you are finished with that call, call the president of your company whose private number I have right here and who I spoke to 30 minutes ago. He is waiting for your call."

     It will take time...

     "Thats okay, I can help or do it myself. But make no mistake I will not be leaving this office without the records. Oh, and here is a ream of paper for the copy."

     Totally new mindset for these folks, but by god, they produced. The HMO has reorganized, two therapists were shown the door, his case manager is motivated, my wife [hint number two] is happy and I feel much better. Anger management seems to be the diagnosis of the day in therapy circles for some reason. Probably repression of their own issues. After all, going postal on your therapist in not recommended for getting your own therapy ticket punched.

:::::

     Well, there you have it. Think you know who sent me that great advice? Actions speak louder than words. Go ahead, tell me who you think is my new favorite amateur psychologist:

     Here's my guess.  Your comments appreciated.
