A "Mespecial" is usually an egotistical maniac and can be either male or female. Highly opinionated,"Mespecial" people are so sold on themselves they attempt to dominate where ever they are. Usually loud for effect, "Mespecials" are so aggressive, others get little opportunity to speak in a conversation. Can almost magically drive the subject back to how important or learned they are, or where they have been, or who they "know". With no knowledge of their obvious malady, a "Mespecial" likes to think he is more learned, well travelled, wealthier or more successful than those he encounters.

A "Beaurocratics Anonymous Mentality" plagues usually dedicated, but susceptible former government employees, sometimes ruining marriages, and yes, even lives!
These folks who, after dismissal of any sort by a government or government contract industry, struggle daily, either alone or with others, to resurrect their former mental status to normal.
As the stalifying beaurocracy that it is, government brainwashes its employees to spend the most time and the most money on any project assigned to them with overwhelming preliminary hogwash such as diagrams, blue prints, and specifications in order to complete the most simple, or preliminary tasks. They can also incur much overhead in "down time" due to repetition after poor success in one area or another.
Any simple government regulated chore can be deterred by pages of grandiloquent specifications and regulations, or of just plain old BS.
When dedicated employees return to the real world, they have great difficulties adjusting in order to complete ordinary tasks easily, inexpensively and finally, successfully.
They frequently convene in small groups of two or more at Malls, churches and other social settings to converse and exchange methods of removing this mindset in hopes of pursuing an ordinary life, uninhibited by these beaurocratic brainwashing constraints.
