Daily Prompt Mad as a Hatter Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry?
I don’t anger easily. If I get pushed to that point, that is the end of the relationship with whomever it is who pushed me. Why? Because killing people is frowned upon in our day and age, so I can only kill them subjectively by not knowing them anymore. What makes me angry? (Irritation and frustration are NOT anger, by the way.) Dishonesty is on the top of that list combined with abuse and injustice. If those appear together and are directed at me or someone I care for, watch out. As for telling anyone about a moment when I was driven into a rage? I don’t think so. These are not moments I want to relive or share. Meanwhile, a poem and film that might be enjoyable to older folks, and has the lines I’ve used as the title for this post.
