Jack graduated from high school and got a job working in a video store. After
working for about 6 months Jack began to hear voices that told him he was no
good. He also began to believe that his boss was planting small video cameras in
the returned tapes to catch him making mistakes. Jack became increasingly
agitated at work, particularly during busy times, and began “talking strangely” to
customers. For example one customer asked for a tape to be reserved and Jack
indicated that that tape may not be available because it had “surveillance photos
of him that were being reviewed by the CIA”. After about a year Jack quit his job
one night, yelling at his boss that he couldn’t take the constant abuse of being
watched by all the TV screens in the store and even in his own home.
