Thread Name: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Subject: RE: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Getting angry can be done selectively and deliberately as a mode of communication aimed at passive aggressive types. It can serve to make them crawl out of their holes. It is not, in this sense, the same as losing one's temper.

In the sense of just going out of rational socially-acceptable control, it has only happened a couple of times to me--once when someone waved a knife in my face and ended up on the floor, and once when an arrogant supervisor tried to lay undeserved guilt on my poor long-suffering butt for his own confusions. He also ended up on the floor. But that was many a year ago, by a different sort of sea altogether. :D
