Why are some people who look so sane so completely bonkers?

For anyone who doesn't know me, I'm a bit of a politics nut. I'm not one of those poncy people who like hob nobbing with the great and the good but one of the people who knocks on people's doors to find out what they want in their area.

I go out every week delivering questionnaires that ask people how they's like to improve their schools, garbage collection, road and police men etc. We are starting to get a decent response rate too, which is nice. I went out today with a couple of people and, as you do, I got talking to them.

They genuinely seemed like nice, normal people, until they 'went off on one' and proved to be they'd completely 'gone off the deep end.' In all ernestness, they told me that the world was run by the "Jewish Illuminati" and were rampant communists and feminists. To be honest I did my best impersonation of a fish. My mouth opened and closed, but nothing came out.

It was all I could do to keep calm and get through to the end of the day without giving them an earful. How on Earth can someone get into their 20s or 30s and believe such unreconstructed horse manure?

The worrying thing was I was sent out to deliver with them, so I don't know what she thinks of me if I'm being sent out with them.
