Anger Management: None Here. By Geniusofdespair
Yesterday, I went to use the bike in our health club to unwind (a high technology bike I can hardly manage it has so many 'enter' buttons). The TV is very hard to work as the last person in the room presses all the buttons and nothing works right. After dealing with the TV and the bike, I tried to set the temperature in the room to cool it from 84 degrees but it has all kinds of extra buttons (6 or 7 of them) so I couldn't just set a cool temperature. There are timers and what have you. It was hot. I was cranky. I had to reset the bike every time I got up to fix the TV and thermostat (that wouldn't kick in). What else could I do...I ripped the damn thermostat off of the wall and left.
It felt good...too good.
My lesser (angry) half saw the thermostat and went ballistic. Really, who could get mad at a spouse for brutalizing a thermostat? Well, we are still not talking.
The thermostat is a symptom of so much more: It represents everything that is wrong in our society even Donal Trump running for president. I plead the 5th.
