The Complete and Total Loser's working day begins with the commute to work. Prone to anxiety over being late, he arrives an hour early. Prone to worry about getting to town late, he takes a train that leaves an hour earlier than he needs to. Prone to lose sleep over missing the train, he arrives at the train station early. That's where he sees this express train zoom by. It amazes him that he can be this near a means to certain death, yet he does nothing to promote it.
