Angry

I've found myself to be quite angry over the last week or so, yet I have no idea why.
I've been extremely annoyed by the slightest small thing, and have been quite sarcastic to anyone to offers any help (my apologies to The Demon). Again, I'm not sure why.
I kinda feel like smashing a window, kicking over a plant pot, just doing something destructive to alleviate my anger.

I thought getting out on my mountain bike last night would help me to burn off some of this rage, but my bike broke down after about 30 minutes and this just poured more fuel onto the anger fire, but when I got home and found out the price of a new part, I was angrier still!

Then I get behind the wheel of a car.
Lets not go there.

What the fuck is going on?!

Male menopause?
Mid-life crisis?
Nervous breakdown?

Be warned, Jaggy.

I'd put my money on the male menopause, you're well overdue now that you're in your fifties.

Löst Jimmy said...

jaggy could be right but don't worry there's bound to be some pastilles you can take and calm you down...

I found today that listening to 'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap' by AC/DC on my way to work hasn't really helped my mood.

The inner punk is trying to get out!!! Embrace it!!! Have a mohawk!!! Headbutt a suit!!! Petrol bomb a copper!!! Seize the moment!!!

Zen Wizard said...

Heat exhaustion, andropause, and stagflation all converging in a "Perfect Storm" of displaced aggression and rage.

Zen Wizard said...

^ Wait that's ME...I'm not really sure what is wrong with YOU...

Ro said...

Just assume it's the male menopause and use it as an excuse to do everything you want to do.

I'm sure there's a newer, faster bike you'd like to get your hands on :)

A pair of boxing gloves and punch-bag should do the trick. Try your nearest leisure centre, or gym... or boxing hall!

Is it a general feeling of 1/ I'm average at everything I do? 2/ I'm not very good at life? 3/ Why do burds not fancy me now? 4/ Why did burds fancy me in the first place? 5/ Why am I not all that I could have been? 6/ Why are other people better than me? 7/ Why are all other people arses? 8/ Why am I an arse! 8/ Why do I not stay in a bigger house? 9/ Why do I not drive a better car? 10/ Why do I always run out of money a week or a fortnight before pay day?

Questions questions questions but all very true for most people apart from those who have lived at the very top. Except there is only one way to go for peole who have been at the top. The nornmal amongst us however, can be satisfied with a life of mediocrity and acknowlege the grim reality that that there is no slippery slope to fall down.Unless of course you let yourself.

On the other hand its all about PMA- 1/ you have you health 2/ you have a job 3/ you have the love of a good woman 4/ you have £10 in your pocket 5/ you have a life to live for 6/ you are only halfway through your life - what can you do with the other half 7/ what are you really capable of? 8/ You cannot influence yesterday only tomorrow!!

We all get pissed off but tommorow is never far away - what can you do with it?

Inchy said...

Holy shit, Lump! That's a bit deep and meaningful!

Maybe you should lay off the coffee and get some more sleep. You won't be getting much next week.

Inchy said...

Jimmy - I'm more a Jelly Babies man.

Preacher - Have you seen the price of petrol? It's probably cheaper to brandy bomb a copper!

Ro - It's a mountain bike. It only goes faster if I get a steeper mountain or new legs.

Zen - Jeez, I thought I had it bad, and I don't even know what stagflation is!

Helga - I don't do 'the gym'. It's a place for women with image problems and men with latent homosexuality.

sparsely kate said...

go do some smashing plates...or trash up a room or get raving drunk and play Foo Fighters really loud.

or kick the cat. it's your choice really. :)

Steve said...

Your real name is Anakin Skywalker and you are being consumed by the Dark Side.

Inchy said...

Kate - I'm allergic to cats so I try my hardest to kick them whenever possible. They should be classed as vermin as far as I'm concerned. The Foo Fighters is a good suggestion though.

Steve, I'm your father.

I'm the same at the moment. The slightest thing is sending me into a fit. I'm putting it down to working mainly at home. Nothing much really happens except me tapping away on a computer. So when something slightly annoying happens like my bank phoning me up to tell me how poor I am I have no frame of reference of other things happening to put it into perspective. My bank phoning me up to tell me how poor I am becomes the event of the day. And it has ruined my day. Even though I know deep down all they were doing was trying to make me buy something.

I need to calm the hell down; I told the bank guy he was ruining my day.

Inchy said...

Misssy - Methinks you need some retail therapy. Get the plastic out!

Ro said...

Yes, I realise you were talking about a mountain bike ... but surely there's a nice, fast motorbike you'd like to upgrade to? :)

Löst Jimmy said...

Nothing wrong with Jelly Babies Inchy. Plus there is the anger releasing aspect of biting their heads off

Helga Hansen said...

Damn... I have a yearning for jelly babies now!! Back in a tick!

Inchy said...

Ro - No way, pedal power is where it's at, baby! Actually, that's a complete lie. There's not a single product I own that I haven't contemplated the lottery winner ultimate upgade of.

Jimmy - I think you've got your own anger related issues there. Do you think Ian Fraser Kilmister eats his that way?

Helga - A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips!

Steve said...

Noooooooooooooooooooo!
