    Do you get angry or do you get even?

    Some people explode like a volcano and then they feel better afterwards.  On the other hand, some would get back at the person and then they will feel better.  So which one are you?

    I do both. I get angry and I get even.
    I think it is human nature to get angry when something/someone offends you. But the way one handles his anger is something else. I get even by smiling, shrugging  and then turning away from the person who caused such anger.

    I get even by not getting angry, just focussing on what I want and rising above that stuff.  That pees them off WAY more!!!!!

    i get even. i rarely get angry as it's not part of who i am. do me wrong though and i will repay you.

    Neither really...I hold in my anger and eventually get over it, because whenever I've had to confront people it just creates more drama. Getting even only makes you look like the bad guy, and doesn't really accomplish anything.

    Neither. I quickly get my feelings hurt, then I get over it and move on.

    I get angry and then I get even!!!!

    I think it all depends on the situation though

    I get angry, but I'm trying to work on that.  I used to get even, but the revenge stuff only holds you back.  Sometimes it even comes back on you - double pay!

    I would never get even, revenge is a waste of time and effort and really doesn't prove much in the long run. I might get angry however.

    I used to get explosive angry. Now it is not worth expending my energy on. I believe in karma. What goes around, comes around.
