I don't like temper tantrums.

Stomping, huffing, slamming around, yelling, etc. when you're frustrated about something beyond your control is a 6-year old's method of coping. If you're older than that and still doing it, you need to find a more adult way to cope with your frustration. I'm not impressed with a short fuse.

We all have our things. I have mine. Any way, I called my dad about 20 minutes into it when I was on my way to the CVS for supplies. When I get back my darling is still going at it. I told him to cut the crap and chill out. My dad did not like that and told me to, no demanded, that I do my wifely duties lol. I did of course, tho, my dh says I suck as a nurse. Clearly, if he were shooting blood all over the place, or lost the finger, he'd be at the emergency room.

I'm sure I sound heartless, but panic does something to my brain. I don't like it. It's not my way.

So, how about you?
If I was him I would have laughed.

[the personality trait I can't accept is a lack of humor - shizz happens]

The one that sends me over the edge is people who constantly put themselves down. The self-loathing low self-esteem thing is just SO frustrating!

Extrema paranoia to the point that they are going through your phone, hacking into your voice mail, e-mail, Facebook, etc. Then goes off the deep end when they find nothing and think that you are trying hide something from them. Then they scream and yell at a girl your talking to thinking that you are cheating on them with her, and not taking the time to realize that you are actually talking to your sister.

Yep, I went on one date with a guy that lost his cool when someone ran into him by accident at a football game. He turned into the Incredible Hulk...puffing, huffing and veins popping out everywhere. He looked so ridiculous that I started laughing. Needless to say, we never went out again.

It's funny. Whenever someone bumps into me I'm usually the guy who says sorry and if they're ok. Typically, they are the ones who get knocked back by the contact.
