I is For...

This month I'm participating in the A-Z Challenge. (For more information, click here.) My theme is Anger MISmanagement. I'll be posting almost every day in April, skipping only Sundays. Let's see how I do!
 

Today's letter is I.
 
(Would I be cheating if I said that I stands for “I am the one who's so bleeping angry this month?” Yeah, I guess I would be...)
 
So, since yesterday I called some undetermined someone or something a hellspawn, why don't we just say that I is for INSULT?
 
That's fairly straightforward, innit? Something gets you upset, and you insult it. I guess it's kinda related to my D entry from a few days ago!

Thanks for your time.

  5. This is what makes us such great sarcastics. The ability to insult people and somehow making them like it.

  6. Here's something similar to that: I have a sign on my kitchen wall -- I've had it for forty years -- that says "TACT -- The ability to tell someone to GO TO HELL and make them feel happy as they go on their way." (That's an exact quote, btw.)

  7. Some thing gets you upset and then you insult it? Don't you mean some one gets you upset and you insult them? :)

  8. Actually, I have also been known to insult and/or swear at inanimate objects. :)

    2. Let's hope not. I'd hate to see how they'd retaliate.

    1. Ah, yes. "Irate" is another I word I thought of using.

      Years ago, at my last Crappy Day Job, we were told not to refer to any customers as "angry" when we left memos on their accounts. It wasn't strictly prohibited, it was just frowned upon by the supervisors. They preferred we use the term "irate." I, of course, used "angry." When questioned about it, I told them to look up "irate" in the dictionary, and just be glad I wasn't using "pissed off."

      I guess that's why I have a mental block about "irate."

  10. I'll have to remember that the next time someone tells me I'm being insulting. I am not, I'm being descriptive.

  11. My sis-in-law likes to say, "I don't judge, I assess." I thought that went nicely with yours. ;)

  12. I love the insult. It can be an art form if used properly. One of my faves, even though I like the guy, was against Jack Kerouac. Truman Capote said of Jack's writing, "That's not writing, that's typing." Ha!

    Happy A to Z-ing. See ya 'round the web. All Things Kevyn.

    1. I've always loved that quote, and I'm a fan of Kerouac's, too.
