I'm very calm! I rarely just go off, but I can. I really don't have a temper. I've always believed that anger is a feeling that can be controlled (usually) easier than most feelings. Of course being angry is ok and I'm not the kind of person that thinks everything should be kindness and smiles even when the douche bag on the road crosses into your lane or cuts you off. Lol.
I prefer picking my battles though. Still everybody has those specific things that set them off! I have things that really annoy me and make me frustrated enough to say "why would anybody leave a freakin' drink on the bathroom sink?!" (Like today) but very little things like that would have me seeing red. Those types of things upset me because they make me feel disrespected and unappreciated. When the kids or fam does things like that knowing that I work so damn hard to keep the house clean, it's upsetting a bit.
However, there are some things that will cause me to confront someone. Usually I keep pretty calm, but when someone has done something really nasty to me I'll say something. For the most part though, I'm calm.
