An umpire gets punched in the face by an upset mother, a worker gets a drink thrown in her face over a 25-cent overcharge on cheese fries, a customer rips a cash register off the counter after an order was made incorrectly, and a man gets so angry on the road while driving that he ends up dead. It sometimes feels like it has gotten too dangerous to leave the house because people’s fuses are so short. What has happened to America? Why do people feel that they can do anything to anyone these days, that rules just don’t apply to them, and/or if they don’t like something, they have the right to intimidate, verbally abuse or even physically assault you? Dr. Phil speaks with people who have experienced firsthand when someone blows their fuse.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Has your life been affected by current social issues?
