What is the weirdest thing someone has gotten angry at you for?

OR What's the weirdest thing you've gotten angry with someone for? This question is a hard one for me. I think my answer is probably going to be subpar. The one thing that comes to mind is when I get angry with someone for not putting a dish in the dishwasher. That seems kind of weird to me and something useless to be angry over. What about YOU?

Years ago I got lost in the desert. My car got stuck in the sand. I kept digging it out but as soon as I got back in and tried to drive it dug itself back into the sand. Finally, the frame was sitting on the sand so I couldn't do anything more. I didn't have any water with me so, after a day, I started hallucinating... I thought my friend showed up. I talked with him all night long. When it was starting to get daylight, he told me he had to go home to get his kids ready for school. I begged him to take me home, too. He told me I had to stay there and wait but he'd come back after he put his kids to bed that night. The next night, he did come back and talked with me again until he had to leave to get his kids ready for school. Again I begged him to take me home with him. He told me he couldn't but if I just waited the police would find me that afternoon... Well, that afternoon the police found me and put me in the hospital. I was diagnosed as having heat stroke, sunstroke and severe dehydration. In the hospital, I called my friend and asked him why he couldn't just take me home when he left. He kept telling me he hadn't been there so couldn't... It took several days before I believed him. I was so mad about him just leaving me in the desert!

Oh wow ! What a miserable, miserable experience for you though. I've heard people have very strange hallucinations when exposed to that kind of weather though. I think it must be our bodies way of coping / keeping us alive. Do you ever wonder why it was him that you hallucinated?

@ScribbledAdNauseum I lost 40 lbs while out in the desert. The doctors said my blood was as thick as glue. They also said that if I hadn't been working out as much as I had been, my heart wouldn't have been able to keep pumping it through my body. They said the only other time they'd ever seen blood that thick was in corpses brought in from the desert. (When I got stuck I weighted 163. When I got to the hospital I weighed just under 120. It took me a year to bring my weight back to where it had been.) No, I never wondered about it.

@DaddyEvil How long were you stuck there again? That's a considerable amount to lose in a few days, though I guess your body was "eating itself" to survive.

I can't think of any weird ones at the moment....but I will think on it. But that one does not seem too weird to me!

Right. I think my example is somewhat useless because it does no good to get angry. The person is going to keep doing it and there's nothing I can say or do to change that.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I don't think so, but I can understand if they won't change/stop doing that. I would probably get angry myself.

@MommyOfEli2013 It's just one part of a bigger whole. I've had to learn to let go of the frustration or let it eat me up.

I sometimes can get angry if hubby is rinsing dishes and he is blasting hot water at full power. Sometimes I am able to control myself but sometimes not.

No, but I get that. I'm the type of person who will turn the water on long enough to get the dish wet, soap and sponge wet and then turn it off until time to rinse.

@ScribbledAdNauseum We first rinse dishes and then wash them. And use a paper towel when we do the pre-wash rinsing. When hubby rinses dishes (before washing) he puts it on very hot and probably the highest power possible. That is so wasteful. One time I couldn't take it so came up to the sink and turned down the water a bit and he got upset and told me when I rinse dishes I can do it my way or something like that. Using less water and not even very hot water can rinse dishes just as well, even if there is stuck on food.

@lovebuglena I grew up poor. Well my parents were, my grandparents weren't, but we were taught to conserve water, electricity etc. It just makes sense to use as little water as possible.

Don't abuse an animal in my presence and don't have an animal near me that looks like you neglected or harmed her or him. I once told a kid off that lived near me cause he kicked a cat. He said it was his cat so basically I should shut up. I told the kid that I did not care who owned the cat. Just do not kick the cat.

How awful! It makes me question what his parents or guardians were teaching him or whether they were neglecting him. I don't condone animal abuse either. Animals have souls and they feel pain.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I agree about you and animals. For sure fur persons feel pain and loneliness etc.

@sallypup All you have to do is look into a pet's eyes and see that they have emotions. I feel like there needs to be more education about pets for kids in school. We can't always rely on parents to teach their kids to be kind to animals.

I was putting together a couple of boxes of food that we didn't need, canned goods, etc. and my neighbor came over and started rummaging through taking what he pleased and putting it a plastic bag he got from our pantry. I told him it was for people that didn't have food and to stop and put it back. He got mad and stormed back to his house. Sorry, not sorry. It was rude in my opinion and he was messing up what I was trying to do. I guess you can say we both got pissed at each other over it.

I really understand why you got pissed that was rude of him! To me it was like he thought "well she's getting rid of it might as well take some of it." but it was going to people in need!

@ScribbledAdNauseum Yea, I guess that is how he was thinking. He should have thought more about how rude it might be though.

@AngelisaQT I wish I was the type of person who didn't think of those things / consider how my actions would be construed. I don't understand those who can do that though.

@CarolDM Close proximity for long durations and all that. I like to think we expect better of our family than we do anyone else. Not necessarily a bad thing, but we have to remember that we're only human.

I had someone get angry at me because I walked into work with a bag; and someone wanted to know what was in the bag. I thought that was kind of nosy; so I KIDDINGLY said "None of your business". She called me a b**ch and told EVERYONE in the office about what happened.

Wow, but that was really rude of her to just ask that of you. I could understand if you were friends / very close work colleagues, but it doesn't seem like you were.

@LindaOHio I think so too. I feel like it would be hard for someone to get angry at you for that, they'd probably be unsure how to react at first, giving you time to get away.

This crazy mom that we all knew wanted to have a birthday party for her young daughter - same class as my son. She didn't hand out invitations, but she went around to all of us after school to ask us if we could make it that weekend. I can't remember what holiday it was, but pretty much ALL of us had plans and wouldn't be able to make it. When she asked, I had the same answer everyone else was giving her, which was the honest truth. All she did was say "Hmph!", turned and stomped away .

Wow, sounds like she should have sent out invitations or at the very least told people weeks in advance. I think she should also realize that people are going to have plans around a major holiday.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Right - she could have planned that out way better. I can understand her being disappointed, but she didn't have to abruptly end the conversation with steam coming out the top of her head. Interestingly, she was known to sue people . . . I thought maybe I was going to hear from her lawyer .

@much2say Oh no, so she was that type of person, huh? I just have to roll my eyes at those types of people. I had an aunt like that.

@ScribbledAdNauseum it's just, there wasn't room for the whole wedding party in the house for pictures. So, not his fault and the other people probably wanted the pictures over with.

Oh that sounds strange and like someone who was too picky. I'd have probably never taken anything they offered again.
