The Last Straw

It's the pin pricks. Computer glitches or the camera's dead battery. The Monday morning flat tire, trash bag that splits apart half way to the bin or the baby that cries in the restaurant booth behind you. It's not the big things that get you: the job loss, bankruptcy, even divorce . . . you can move on from that. It's the little things . . . drops of blood on a clean kitchen floor.
