Gulliver’s Complaint

A Desociative Microdisorder

Presentation

Gulliver's Complaint is so named after the protagonist in Jonathan Swift’s novel, who after being shipwrecked on the shores of a foreign country, meets up with some rather small and nasty citizens of Lilliput. And although the difficulties of travel today are nowhere near those which Capt. Lemuel Gulliver encountered, today's travelers do find themselves in mildly irritating situations which, under the right circumstances foisted upon the right personalities, can explode into a microdisorder of alarming proportions.

There are possibly thousands of circumstances which can lead to Gulliver's Complaint: cancelled flights, abrasive taxi drivers, noisy hotel rooms, surly rental-car agents, rude waiters.... The list goes on and on. And though the trigger agents may differ, the responses of Gulliver's Complaint are nearly always the same: increased heart rate and blood pressure accompanied by belligerence and hostility.

Management

Recently some services, such as Emotional Release Stations, have been made available for the treatment of Gulliver's Complaint. Most patients report finding significant relief in these services. However, the only guaranteed treatment for Gulliver's Complaint is a complete travelectomy.
