A Look Back – Last Friday’s Incident

Last week I had a bad episode at Walmart. I lost my temper and yelled at and cursed out one of the managers because she gave me an attitude.

Even though she gave me an attitude, I should never have reacted the way I did. I cannot try and justify my reaction. I had a right to be angry and upset with the situation and with how she reacted toward me.

The problem wasn’t the feeling of anger that I felt, rather it was the way I reacted as a result of the feelings. I let the emotions take hold of me and control my reactions.

Now, on the plus side, while I yelled and screamed a lot, I did not hurt myself. I resisted the urge to hit myself. This is a big thing for me.

The other positive that came out of it is that I was over it within in a few minutes, that is over the whole incident. I did not carry on about it. Even when my wife was still pissed with me I didn’t stress over it. I said ‘oh well’ because I knew by morning things would have calmed down.
