The man is obviously not a "gentleman".

Please reserve your use of the word for those of us who are.

I saw this story on our local news last week.. guess how they started off the story? "An Ohio man reacts to something that's been affecting all of us lately". I had no idea what they were about to talk about, but I didn't think this analog shutoff was affecting all of us lately.
