They couldn't stop me. Define "get away."

If I "show my temper" in public, I almost always "get away" with it---because no cop comes up to me and tells me to "calm down." I feel pretty embarrassed, though. Usually, what I'm upset about is no major thing at all. Like if I just miss a train, and the next train is 20 minutes away, and it's midnight, I get upset because I have to get up at 6:15 the next morning.

When I was 17, though, I was drumming very loudly on a subway seat----when this cop came up to me and told me to get off the train. He escorted me into a room---where he asked me a couple of questions. Then he told me to "calm down," and sent me on my way.

Depends on who I am around at the moment. I have had a few people give me encouragement to get mad to resolve certain problems and others that focus on scolding me for getting mad when I had every reason imaginable to support my actions.

Lil dipshits are judgmental, manipulative ass holes

They act like they have never done anything wrong before in their lives and " the meaning of life is 'helping people'. "

f**k mister redelings

When someone has the nerve to comment on my appearance (including emotion), intelligence or demeanor, that is annoying and anger is justified

When someone let's their dog off leash, that is illegal and , anger is justified

When someone drives impatiently or recklessly, that is dangerous and, anger is justified

When someone refers to herself as "people" and me as "you", it implies that I can not a person. And she represents people. Condescending. Anger is justified

There is nothing to "get away" with

When someone laughs at me or asks personal questions, that is disrespectful and rude and anger is justified

When someone bangs impatiently on the bathroom door, that is arrogant and anger is justified

When someone has the nerve to say "what" or "huh" like it's the etiquette equivalent of "excuse me", that is calloused and anger is justified


When someone tries to sell me drugs, if they persist, then anger is justified.

Aggressive panhandling

When someone tells me that I said something I did not say, they need a hearing aid, and anger is justified


Does that make sense?
