Why Get Mad ?

Updated on January 4, 2017

Because People Want To

Here it is day four of the new year

You have lost your temper

I understand your frustration

If something doesn't work the way you want

Try again

Then if you still can't do it

Ask a friend

Some how you become impatient and tune me out

I try to tell you to calm down

You stop hearing and won't listen

You insist on why me ?

All I want is this to work

Is that asking to much

I find it silly apparently you don't

The problem in question

Was a Tupperware lid that wouldn't close

The more you tried

The more mad you got

Let me see it

Maybe there is something keeping it from closing ?

I carefully looked and moved things around

Nothing I could see blocking it

Then I tried with no luck

As you grabbed it quickly to force it to close

You are only going to break it

I know it worked a few minutes ago

Why won't it work now?

I don't have the answer

After looking at the container again

I tried holding down the bottom tray and pressing the top shut

It worked

A miracle I'm thinking

No just lucky

Every container is a little bit different

As I go to show you

You say I don't want to even see it

Mumbling under your breath

That's stupid

No it's a plastic container we don't usually use for a vegetable platter

The Rubbermaid container you like is missing

Maybe we left it somewhere

Usually we are pretty good at bringing them home

Not this time

I don't remember using it for awhile

Another mystery of life

So this is only a small thing

That can blow up to a big thing if not careful

I say let it go

When it is someone else's problem

It is easier for me to say

Just think a few days from today

All will be forgotten

Then we will continue to do what we always have

Live life and find ways to make it happier than before

      DREAM ON 15 months ago

      Gypsy Rose Lee I can think of nothing better than spending great quality time together. Think of all the wonderful times and laugh all day long. Thank you for reading. I love enjoying the quiet times. I wonder wouldn't it be great if we could hear people think. Keep sharing the winter stories they give new mining to our life.

      Gypsy Rose Lee 15 months ago from Riga, Latvia

      Right now here in Riga, Latvia life is at a standstill. Snow was dumped on us and for many days now we have below freezing temps so hubby and I keep to one room which is warmest. Luckily it is the one with my PC. Our cat Sid goes out plops his stuff on top of the frozen snow and then stands with his nose to the front door waiting to get back in.
