We get all sorts of potential winners in here at the House. It’s too bad that they are too short-sighted to see their own potential. This resident, for instance: He has a decent education and is fairly organized. He is articulate. He is clean and polite. What’s the problem, then? Although I’m not a shrink, I’d say it’s a combination of low self-esteem and impulsiveness. A fairly bad combination when you’re in rehab. This guy seizes the moment, but unfortunately a lot of moments are better left unsiezed.
