One of my acquaintances is in a hospital.
He was in a terrible car accident.
Both of his arms are broken.
So are both of his legs.
He has several broken ribs and various lacerations all over his body.
It`s fair to say he managed to escape death by an inch.
If I wasn`t exercising my tolerance these days I would be utterly disgusted.
His terrible accident was his way of escaping responsibility for trashing his wife within an inch of her death in front of their two kids.
I would say this one is more fitted for disgust than tolerance.
