Did I give you the wrong idea?

I want to make a few clarifications regarding my "Anger Management" post.

No, I have never keyed a car, nor have I ever let the air out of some one's tire. I've never hit a car with a rock. (Snowballs and eggs, yes-rocks-NEVER!)

Have I WANTED to key a car? Hell yeah. It would have shocked the crap out of those parking spot stealing teens if I had f-ed with their car. But I didn't. I didn't even pour my chocolate milkshake all over the hood of their car like I wanted to. Why? Because despite my anger-I am civilized and have a fear of the law. The fun of getting revenge on those girls wouldn't be worth a lawsuit, or one of my neighbors witnessing my act of vandalism.

As Franklin P. Jones once said..."Nothing makes it easier to resist temptation than a proper bringing-up, a sound set of values, and witnesses."

Amen to that.

(Oh and by the way...if you're wondering who Franklin P. Jones is...well, no one is really sure, but he has a lot of famous quotes...I guess he was just a clever, witty person-just like us!)

LOL! Of course I didn't think for one second you were running around keying cars! We just wish we could go around getting our revenge. Our bark is worse than our bite!

MommyTime said...

I like that you felt the need to clarify, as if we were all imagining you as some terror in a tennis skirt. :) Having frustrations and acting on them are two different things...we "get" you.

Okay, wait. Someone actually thought you threw rocks? I mean, pebbles, perhaps, but rocks? You're an angry mom, not a nut job! That cracks me up if someone thought that.

And for the record, one day, when I can be sure NO ONE is looking, I will key the car of the jerkizoid who left me 3 inches to place myself back into my vehicle. =)

Oh, and this:

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scored."

Scored, in this particular phrase, means any sort of irritation, disturbance or general perturbed-ness. =)

Shelby said...

I don't proofread my own comments.

ScorNed. It should say scorNed. Oh man what a day...

I knew:) I have the imaginary smackdown tantrum fantasies too but usually just smile & wave & give them the finger inside my head.

linda said...

I knew you wouldn't do that!

The Mrs. said...

Damn. I thought you were out being my favorite anger superhero keying cars all over town. Now I'll have to do it. Add it to my to do list! LOL!

Gette said...

That is an awesome quote!!

I applaud you for your civilized nature. You are better than me though b/c I think I would have done SOMETHING. The chocolate shake thing would not have been too bad, they could have gone to the carwash when they saw it.

Being a responsible, mature adult is so not fun sometimes.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

You should NEVER pour a chocolate milkshake on anyone's car!
Total waste of a perfectly good shake.
So, did someone really take you seriously?

I never once thought you actually do that. We all fantasize about getting revenge. Perfectly normal. My biggest fantasy is to be driving down the road in a a Mad Maxx style car and release my fury on all the effed up cell phone talking assholes! It would also be equipped with a megaphone whereby I could scream obscenities at them while simultaneously shooting up their car. The bullets wouldn't harm them per se but it should would cause a load of steaming shit to appear in their pants. Muhwhahaa!

Well that's a let down I thought I could live vicarioulsy through you!!

You mean I am not going to stop by your blog one day and find that you pulled a Kathy Bates (Fried Green Tomatoes) "Face it, girls, I'm older and I have more insurance."

Well it's the thoughts that count really isn't it! ;)

Karen MEG said...

Aw, here I was thinking you were the one with the guts to do all the stuff we others will only dream about ;)

Irene said...

That is hilarious that someone would think you would actually do something like that, and then admit it in public! Hilarious!!!

Sometimes the fantasy just has to be enough, right?
