I do . My mom and boyfriend tell me I have the worst temper they've ever seen in a human being. And they're absolutely right. There are hot-tempered people, who get angry easily but only let it last a short while. And there are bad-tempered people, who get angry easily and stay angry for a very long time. Guess which one I am . Unfortunately, I'm unreasonably short- and bad-tempered. I get irritable extremely easily . The smallest things, such as too-hot weather, waiting in line anywhere, and scraping my elbow on the doorframe, are enough to send me into a rage. And when I'm in one of those moods, my boyfriend says that I swear more than any guy he knows, and I'll be calling everyone the worst names I can think of . Example: When I was 15, my brother, who was then 10, borrowed one of my books. When he returned it, the back cover had been partly torn off. I shouted at him for not taking care of my book, and when he acted like he didn't really care, I slapped him across the face so hard that I bruised his cheek and he bawled his eyes out to high heaven. I have tried to control my temper, but lately it's been on an even shorter line than usual, and it's awful :cry:. I'm grumpy every second of the day, and my boyfriend puts up with it like a warrior .
