PostSubject: Anger Management   Sun Jan 09, 2011 6:16 am

ANGER MANAGEMENT as taught by Susie.


When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take
it out on someone, don't take
it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know.

I was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I'd forgotten
to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered, saying 'Hello.'

I politely said, 'This is Chris. Could I please speak with Robyn
Carter?'

Suddenly a manic voice yelled out in my ear 'Get the right f***ing
number!' and the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone
could be so rude. When I tracked down Robyn's correct number to call her, I
found that I
had accidentally transposed the last two digits.

After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again.

When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled 'You're an
asshole!' and hung up. I wrote his number down with the word
'asshole' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when
I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him < BR>up and
yell, 'You're an asshole!' It always cheered me up.

When Caller ID was introduced, I thought my therapeutic 'asshole'
calling would have to stop... So, I called his number and said, 'Hi, this is
John Smith from the telephone company. I'm calling to see if you're familiar
with our Caller ID Program?'

He yelled 'NO!' and slammed down the phone. I quickly called him back and
said, 'That's because you're an asshole!' and hung up.

One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot.
Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently
waited
for. I hit the horn and yelled that I'd been waiting for that spot, but the
idiot ignored me.
I noticed a 'For Sale' sign in his back window, so I wrote down his number.

A couple of days later, right after calling the first asshole (I had his number
on speed dial,) I
thought that I'd better call the BMW asshole too.

I said, 'Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?'

He said, 'Yes, it is.'

I asked, 'Can you tell me where I can see it?'

He said, 'Yes, I live at 34 Oak tree Blvd, in Fairfax . It's a yellow rambler,
and the car's parked right out in front.'

I asked, 'What's your name?'



He said, 'My name is
Don Hansen,'

I asked, 'When's a good time to catch you, Don?'

He said, 'I'm home every evening after five.'

I said, 'Listen, Don, can I tell you something?'

He said, 'Yes?'

I said, 'Don, you're an asshole!'

Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I
had a problem, I had two assholes to call.

Then I came up with an idea. I called asshole #1. He said, 'Hello.'

I said, 'You're an asshole!' (But I didn't hang up.)

He asked, 'Are you still there? '

I said, 'Yeah,'

He screamed, 'Stop calling me,'

I said, 'Make me,'

He asked, 'Who are you?'

I said, 'My name is Don Hansen.'






He said, 'Yeah? Where
do you live?'

I said, 'Asshole, I live at 34 Oak tree Blvd, in Fairfax, you’ll see a yellow
rambler and I have
a black Beamer parked in front.'

He said, 'I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your
prayers.'

I said, 'Yeah, like I'm really scared, asshole,' and hung up.

Then I called Asshole #2.

He said, 'Hello?'

I said, 'Hello, asshole'

He yelled, 'If I ever find out who you are...'

I said, 'You'll what?'

He exclaimed, 'I'll kick your ass,'



I answered, 'Well,
asshole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now.'

Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at 34 Oak

tree Blvd, in Fairfax , and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay
lover.

Then I called Channel 9 News about the gang war going down in Oak tree Blvd.
in Fairfax .

I quickly got into my car and headed over to Fairfax . I got there just in time
to watch two assholes beating the crap out of each other in front of six cop
cars, an overhead news helicopter and surrounded by a news crew.

NOW I feel much better.

Anger management really does work

Dear Abe,
I always appreciate your sense of humor. It is a real kindness to send a laugh to folks who may need one. We all need to laugh more and take our own selves a little with some grains of salt.
I am not a great joke teller. People who can see the funny side of every day things are wonderful to know.

You see those people who walk around with the Fearless Fossdick cloud of gloom floating over their heads and the serious expression on their down turned face and wonder if they need a jolt of electric happiness placed just so. Often, I would be glad to apply the jolt.

I hope your snow is white and lovely and you do not have to shovel it all alone.

You are a good and decent friend. I value you.

Love,
Betty

Betty,
you have started my day off with a good feeling. It will set the tone for what follows.
I like good humor. I do not always appreciate some of the metaphores used, and am often reluctant to pass a story along. Sometimes expressions used are key to the telling and should not be altered.

Thanks again.
