Anger uncontrolled - I smashed my dogs’ hair clipper

My dogs’ hair clipper is giving me a headache and a bad mood. It irritates me because the blades were already dull. I already had it sharpened several times but still it doesn’t cut well. Since I don’t have the budget yet to buy a new one, for one (1) year I had to live with it in trying to give my pets a good haircut. But enough is enough. I got tired of it. My patience has finally ended. I got so mad with it and wasn’t able to control so I smashed it on the floor tiles until the blades were broken and threw it in the garbage. Gheez… I know I should have not done that but it felt good releasing my anger. Yes, it was a childish and dumb thing to do but I can’t help it and had to get rid of the problem. After a while, my irritation subsided and now I have to pay the price for what I did. Now I’m worrying when and how am I gonna buy a new hair clipper. I feel pity for my pets but they have to wait to get a good haircut. For the meantime, scissors will do. Has something like this happened to you? Uncontrolled anger and smashing things because you’re so mad? How was it and what did you broke?

It's somehow funny that sometimes simple things can really irritates us. I'm not really feeling guilty. I'm more feeling sad cause dogs' hair clipper is really expensive. Huhuhu

I think a lot of people have done something like this in their life time. We all get get very angry at least once in our life. Most people are not going to admit it though because it is suppose to be bad to get that mad. No it is ok I can understand your fraustration. I have thrown something down in fraustration and it broke it was not uncontrolled anger. I do not think you had uncontrolled anger. It was more like fraustration. and that is very normal for what you were dealing with.
