Severe Anxiety from Revenue Services (SARS) is a common affliction affecting millions of South Africans in all major city centres every year. Historically, symptoms begin to present themselves in the winter season from 1 July and continue to increase in severity towards a statistical peak for the epidemic on 22 November every year. Both males and females are equally susceptible, though males are better at ignoring the presentation of symptoms while females can manage even multiple symptoms with ease. Susceptibility increases from age twenty throughout the working years and decreases to insignificant levels as patients approach the end of their natural lives. NB: The incorrect management of SARS can leave victims suffering critical financial and sense of humour losses.
Infected patients presenting two or more of the below symptoms are said to be infected by the SARS:
Increased anxiety, desperation, confusion and/or fear. Fear can become terror.
Spasms and/or fainting when presented with numerical calculations (particularly financial).
Unprovoked and unwarranted explosions of outrage toward government institutions.
Wild, crazy eyes.
An abnormal level of affection for paper documents. In some cases presents as hoarding.
Increased blood pressure, unless standing within long queues of similarly infected individuals.
Speech becomes unintelligible, littered with bizarre acronyms (typically “IRP5”, “IT3b”). In some cases frothing mouth.
