When little Johnny came out of his room to find his parents gone, he started to weep and cry. When their parents shortly came back, little Johnny was furious in tears and started screaming and wailing at them with all his might. Soon after 10 minutes he was so tired from all the screaming that he felt dizzy and collapsed onto the floor. Little Johnny just had an outrage fatigue.
