When you would like to run there and shout your protest: that’s not fair! Security? Bullshit!
And this make lot of close people cry. And sleep very badly, or not to sleep at all. And be so angry that just putting up the volume of the stereo in your car and shout the words of a raging song will calm you down. You, outside.
