Sad Sack

“Mark down another one.”

“Defeat.”

“This time, it was perpetual self-sabotage. A man goes through life with a certain degree of paranoia, and he’s bound to screw himself up. It’s difficult to relax, sometimes. It’s difficult to accept a situation, particularly if it’s a good one.”

“But, to do it every time; isn’t that a special sort of fucked up?”

“It’s more common than you’d imagine. Two or three times in a row, and suddenly they think ‘it will always be that way.’ Once they start believing that, they’ll start ensuring that it is always that way. The real surprise is how many chances a man gets.”

“It’s some bullshit; the whole thing is. Why should you make yourself miserable? Aren’t there enough things out there to do that for you?”

“You’re telling me.”

“Anyway, we should probably get these fucking hostages tied up and get the money.”
