Even the mention of his name starts me fuming!


Storyline: Mark tells Clara that he can't stop being angry at Ted because Ted was mean to him the other day.  Clara tries to persuade Mark to let go of his anger.
Clara: What happened just now, Mark?  You werne't very kind when you were talking with Ted.  What do you have against him?
Mark: I just don't like him at all.
Clara: Why?  Is there something in particular?
Mark: Well, he has such a mean streak in him!  I went to his office to ask him for some help, and he simply turned up his nose at me!  I was so angry that I wanted to slap him!  He wasn't like that before he got the job.   Now he's such a snob!
Clara: You want my advice?  Let it go.
Mark: Of course, logically I know you're right, but somehow I just can't bring myself to forget it.  Even the mention of his name starts me fuming.
