Quote of the Day

Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.

Francis Quarles


In other words, stop urinating on my leg, because it’s gonna be real bad for you when I snap.

  1. Good one, vM! Like an over-stretched elastic, it’ll only go so far before it finally snaps. Woe onto those who stand in the way…

    I hate arguments. Usually, people who just want attention vs. a discussion.

    My tendencies of temper has always been a “slow burn.” I hate arguments vs. discussions to possibly just ‘Agree to disagree”; and let it go.

    “Snaps”?? This happened years and years ago when I was in the nightclub business. I trained this really nice young man to be a waiter and moved him up to bartender. He was nice looking, quiet spoken and personable. His name was Bill.

    Seemed he had met up with a succubus. She was draining him dry emotionally, financially and his energy.

    It was 2:30 a.m. and I was walking out to my car to go home. I don’t remember how the conversation started; however, she said the wrong thing: “I am just with him to get all of his $$.” I only slapped her yet she flew over the hood of a car and fell to the ground.

    I now believe there really is such a thing the Chinese referred to a “Chi”.

    Good quote and very true. The quiet ones are the ones to watch.

    I have a low bullshit tolerance level, will address it quickly, and then I’m immediately over it, and sleep good too. That slow burn has never worked for me. Occasionally there are things I cannot correct immediately, I lay and wait, then Katie bar the door and all hell breaks loose.

    Upacess88, that was funny.

    That is true. Today the shrinks have named such a person a, “Passive Violent.”

    I’m not slow to anger when liberal trolls spew their hate.
