Our mind's full of this crap already! And when we break down, and it explodes, then what? Correct, you cannot predict someone's reactions. He'll either try to calmly negotiate, reflect on it, or... stab you to death depending on what exactly triggered them to be unable to both forgive AND forget.
We all learn from our mistakes, and are able to go up one step at a time. But if you were this man with the make-up and cheer want to chase a truck, then I'd say, he's always one step ahead of time, even for Batman.
