Thread Name: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Subject: RE: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Even though I seem to lose my temper here it's not really losing one's temper... Standing up to bullies and ignorant people isn't losing one's temper... It's standing up...

I rarely lose my temper these days... Before getting into martial arts 30 some years ago I did lose my temper but that kinda taught me that you can defend yourself, your values and your the things and people you care about without losing your temper...

Okay, as in you situation, Eb, it might have looked as if you had lost your temper but if you really had lost it you might have tried to knock this boorish woman on her ignorant ass...

Good on you for not letting her get away with spreading her ignorance...
