Sometimes I'm just crabby. No PMS. No crappy day. No stupid work stress. Just crabby.

Like now. I'm crabby. And annoyed at people.

I went out for awhile, but the place we went to was pretty dead so we decided to leave. In the parking lot, I thought we decided to just go home. My girlfriend went to another bar and texted me that she was there after I got home. I am tired. I didn't want to go there. And yet, I'm annoyed that she didn't tell me she was going.

I haven't heard from T in a month. I saw him out Wednesday and went over to say hi when I left. I was annoyed that he didn't come to me first. He said he didn't see me. Not possible. I was annoyed. Now I'm annoyed that I'm home early and he isn't somehow sensing that sex would be nice tonight. And the truth is, I've lost interest in sex with him! But I don't want him to lose interest in me!

I hate being annoyed at stupid irrational things. I'm going to go to bed now and probably be annoyed that it's too freakin' hot in my bedroom. In March.

And if ONE of you guys even thinks about insinuating that I'm hormonal, I might hunt you down and string you up by your toes.

Hey shy;

I remember when I was working as a tour manager and I was on a motorcoach taking clients to Main for a weekend of vacation. Well? we left the bus depot about 8:30 am and we were just going over one of the bridges In New York City and we saw the smoke coming out of Tower 1 of the world trade Center.. Then our cell phones went dead and we just made it into Conn. and all govt. buildings were closed and I didnt know why.. As the tour manager I had to find out what was going on.. We couldnt even find rest rooms that were open or any public places to see what was happening.

We made to Maine and the hotel and we finally found out what happened.. My company told me to remain on tour and I was pissed off about that but I didnt know what else to do.. I just made sure where my family was and that was all I could do.. My sis works in the city so she was the first one I called.. along with people I knew that worked in Manhattan..

It was a very harrowing experience to say the least.. I had visited the twin towers many times with groups and schools and to see two huge massive buildings come down from their roots is just so unbelievable. I think Bin Laden didnt think the buildings would come down because of the infrastructure.. and anyone could have been on those planes and in those buildings that day..

I also know people who died there.. Firefighters I knew and people who worked there.

It is now a memorial and they have built something there.. I just havent seen it yet..

I am a very patient person. I can remember three times in my adult life that I've lost my temper. The first was 9/11 (if you look back on this board far enough, you'll see my reaction to that). The second was the day my dad died and the doctor came in and lectured us on alcohol and basically said my dad deserved it. I lost it on that doctor. Then a few months later I found out my 15 year old niece was smoking. The whole neighborhood heard my reaction to that!

So I guess you can say it takes a lot to get me mad, but when I'm mad, I'm REALLY mad!

Divorce is just so awful. Especially when the two people absolutely hate one another. I'm glad you didn't smash him or you'd be posting from inside a prison cell or, not posting at all. That would be no fun :)

I've always had a temper. My mother told me a story once when I was 2 or three, she said I insisted on vacuuming. She allowed me to try and then stepped into another room. She heard some loud banging in the hall and it was me trying to bash the vacuum into the wall because it was too heavy for me to maneuver. To this day, if I get really angry, it's all I can do NOT to break something. I haven't broken anything in a really long time, but my pillows have taken some severe beatings. Maybe it all boils down to impatience. You must be a patient person. You'd almost have to be to be a teacher!

I'm just not really one to destroy things- even an ugly coffee mug. I have no violent tendencies and I don't tend to yell. I'm not a hoarder or anything, but I even have trouble throwing stuff out if it's damaged but still usable.
Maybe that's why I get cranky! I need an outlet for my crankiness!

Don't break anything that's of value to you! Ha-ha! Take your ugliest coffee mug, wrap it up in a pillow case, go outside, and have a go at it with the biggest hammer you own :)

Sometimes shopping can be therapeutic, but only when I catch a good sale. I hate buyers remorse. Though, I have to stay away if it's too crowded and I'm in a mood...otherwise people will annoy me.

I actually spent over an hour on the treadmill before I went out. I should have been relaxed! Your niece sounds like me every single morning. If I'm at my mom's, she's all "Good morning!!" when I get up. I grunt at her until I've had breakfast. She should know better by now!!

I want to go shopping today. Those damn Old Navy ads get me every time. I'm afraid it'll frustrate me even more, though. I'm still fluctuating through the same five pounds instead of going downward! I'm not sure that shopping is the best cure for crankiness. I don't think I could break things either, though. I tend to mourn for broken things.

I reported it.

My oldest niece stayed with me a couple of weeks ago. She woke up in the foulest of moods. I was sipping my coffee and of course said: "Good morning!" She just glared over at me and said: "I don't know why, but I feel like verbally assaulting someone..." LOL. My response? "I have those days!!!" At which point, I took my leave ;)

If one of those moods strikes me on the right day, I actually feel more like breaking something rather than just screaming...I wonder if that's healthy? Probably not...Although, I do know that over in Japan, they have hotel rooms you can pay to go in and trash...that's kind of the same thing. However, I wouldn't want to have to pay to have a meltdown. I guess that's one of those times where taking a nice long hike would be in order or, go take it out on the weeds which are already growing in the garden.
