Twilight Zone episode #754. An unsuspecting shopper waits in the checkout line at the grocery store. Suddenly they are blindsided by an act of pure evil as the person in front of them takes a call on their cell phone. Our story revolves around a single human being struggling with perhaps the greatest challenge in human history. Our persecuted protagonist purposefully repeats silently in their mind “I’m not going to let this bother me, I’m not going to let this bother me.” Yet the scene fades out as our shopper drifts into insanity, unable to perform the seemingly simple task of changing how they feel.
