“Dennis T. Crankshaft Played a Dangerous Game” by Richard F. Yates

He was known as a hot head, but in truth, Melville disliked being a “nice guy,” and would have preferred biting folks’ faces to saying, “Have a good evening!” But when you work selling cell phone plans, your commission check wasn’t going to be very good if you’ve eaten half your customer base. Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time before Melville’s urges overrode his desire to make the payment on his new sports car… Especially when he let Dennis influence his behavior. Dennis was a born instigator…

Dennis saw through Melville’s paper thin mask of civilty, and in his desire to stir up trouble, he’d worked Melville into a small-scale frenzy over a less than polite potential customer. What Dennis hadn’t foreseen was that Melville’s bloodlust was triggered not by the customer’s modest slight, but by Melville’s telepathic understanding that Dennis was trying to manipulate him into deadly action.

Enough was enough. Dennis never made it to his car when his shift was over. Forensics experts referred to Dennis’s remains as “confetti” in the official report, and neither Melville, nor his red sports car, where seen in Henpeck ever again.
