29 of 210 : Barry (Not His Real Name)

He was a loner who joked frequently about suicide. I got worried during one depressive episode and told a college dean, and the resulting bruhaha embarrassed and angered him greatly. Later I heard he was on SSRIs and much happier, so perhaps it wasn’t a total gaffe on my part.

These things are so complicated. Did he know it was you who spilled the beans to the dean?

Unfortunately, yes. For the next two years, he studiously avoided me, or when he couldn't, he scowled at me with great feeling. We had been casual friends, but he never spoke to me again.
