Tennisfiend is a member of our local tennis league, so I answer occasional phone calls from other members needing to re-schedule matches. This guy, “Dave,” called three times about tonight’s match. He sounded rather manic to me. After TF came home from the match, he confirmed my suspicions–Dave was a lunatic. When E made a call, Dave yelled obscenities and would not calm down. He continued cursing for the rest of the match.
Russians find profanity particularly offensive. I was brought up in a rather earthy household, and I dropped my vernacular very quickly. I think in all the years we’ve been married, I’ve only hear him say “shit” once. He was big time offended by Dave and even wrote up the incident. TF has played some obnoxious characters in the past, but he said this guy was over the top.
