Ever Get So Mad You Had To Slap Your Mother-In-Law?

We've yakked quite a few times about anger. What makes you angry, how you handle it, and so on. I just figured this topic needs a bit more lip service...ala Tall. As many of you know, I never get angry. I do however, occasionally even the score.

I think maybe road rage is my favorite. If the automobile makers ever replace the horn with a laser...the population will be cut in half the first week. I tend to drive under the assumption that the world is filled with buttmunch drivers so when I encounter one I'm not surprised. FYI...I LOVE tailgaters! We'll get to that in a bit.

I also LOVE rude people on the telephone. You know, cell phones are a wonderful thing. They keep track of the numbers you dial. Comes in pretty handy when you get treated rudely. Combine this with road rage...you've got some entertainment.

Scenario: You call a friend and accidently misdail. The person at the other end insults you and slams down the phone. Heh Heh...SAVE that number.

Ever sit and wait for a parking spot just to have some jerk whip in and swoop you? Heh heh, jot down that plate number. You would be amazed at how many Police Departments will release the person's name and address from the plate if you have a creative explanation. Many times, just asking will get it. SAVE that number.

Remeber call number one, the rude wrong number guy? Call him every day and say, "You're an asshole." and hang up. Nothing picks up your spirits like calling someone who deserves it an asshole. I highly recommend it. Be sure to *67 first to block caller I.D. Remember guy 2? Call him as well with the same story.

After a couple weeks both are ready to kill you on sight. Call guy one...this time call him names but don't hang up. Keep insulting him...things like..."If you weren't such a punk I'd kick your ass." That comment should get some encouragement from him. Tell him that if he was in front of you right now you'd wipe the street with his punk ass. He'll encourage you again. Give him guy # 2's address and tell him to come on over.

Call guy # 2 and engage the same conversation...but let him know you're on your way to "straighten his ass out".

Drive over to his address and watch the fun. Why be angry? Things have a way of working themselves out.

Remember the tailgaters? ALWAYS remember...the brake is your friend. Use it often...and push really hard. Brake lights become your friend after that. FYI...if you use this method you may want to keep a notepad handy for all the new words you're going to learn. Also, it may help to just go ahead and dial 9 - 1 on your cell phone. You can hit the final 1 as he's pulling you out of the car.

Don't forget to leave your turn signal on as you are braking constantly.

There is nothing more beautiful than the flickering lights on the back of a car........... for miles and miles.

Hows your back feeling? I hope you have someone waiting on you hand and foot, with lots and lots of pain meds.

Oh my goodness, remind me to remain a predestrian because I don't want to be man number one or man number two. Oh my that is going to have me laughing all day.

Does the term REPRESSED anger mean anything to you?

I think this post was as revealing as the "100 things about us" that some of the rest of us wrote. Very interesting....we get a glimpse...

Forget the brake pedal, just turn your lights on and off. They are behind you and won't know the difference. Makes for some great rear view entertainment!!

personal favorite in Chicago is all the people who zoom up on the right at red lights. I love a good challenge and really have to fight not cutting them off. Poorest excuses I used to get were wife in labor (or sick etc) so I would have dispatch call the house, embaress them then write the ticket. Lots of women just starting to menstruate and worried about wrecking car seats (also a variation on the poor bladder control) and my favorite was always just keeping up with traffic and they just passed everyone on the street. I would tell people if you have an excuse I never heard I will cut you a break not many creative minds out there

And I thought I was the only one with such a devious mind.

I would like some of that lip service, and then you can push really hard!
But, really that brake thing, my husband totally used to do when we were first married. I nearly had a cow every time he did it. Now that I broke him of it, I kind of miss it!

I got a similar email a few months ago, about saving numbers and taking your aggression out on someone who truly deserves it. haha
