When Susan was in her twenties the normal frustrations of life would inspire some pretty immature behavior; she might throw her keys from one side of a restaurant dining room to the other, flip her chair over at work, engage in shoving matches with her sister or chase after cars that cut her off. The last one resulted in a few hairy confrontations including having a man come after her with a two by four and another threaten to take her middle finger from one place and put it in another. Susan has grown into a mature wife and mother who can hardly believe she used to act that way, but she knows that she did because she was there.

She figures that you're all thinking, but didn't she just stick her middle finger up at a guy yesterday? And you're correct, but that's not her normal behavior or wouldn't you have read about it by now?

Susan still loves to yell, scream and throw things but not at strangers, she saves that behavior for her family because she's just civilized that way. She combats the frustrating minutiae of her life by banging furiously at a keyboard cranking out TWISTED Susan posts day after day after day. Her modest fan base is right there with her letting her know she's not alone.

Day fifteen for anyone who's counting.
Susan is.

I knew I loved you for reasons beyond my knowing. I too am a recovering key thrower, insult hurler, grumpy growler who now knows that calling someone an asshole only makes things worse (MOST of the time, unless of course someone is being mean to an elderly person) Thanks for the great post.

I used to be a yeller, too. Now I can't be bothered to care all that much.

Day 15! Far better than I could do. Good on you.

I've been a bitcher and a door slammer.

Husband just lost his job and now I want to drive to headquarters, kidnap his boss, dress him in a red dress and take some pictures of him with some 'boys', then post it on their website.........

Is that so wrong???

beechie44: not that I'm any kind of expert but I think that sounds just dandy.

Today I took one of his company shirts with the logo on it and poured my Diet Coke on it and then spread it on the Garage floor...........the satisfaction I get everytime I pull in and leave tire marks on it makes me smile!

I'm probably going to hell!!
