Personally, I do this all the time. I suppose it piggy-backs on my last thread about having a sick fantasy, especially if your sick fantasy is tearing your boss a new a-hole for being a pompous prick.
I am generally a mild mannered person. I don’t swear or get irate in a restaurant when the waiter brings me a dish with a hair in it. I generally give people the benefit of the doubt.
That being said, I can tear the ass out of someone in my head if they are being completely snarky or if they are affecting me remaining calm.
Case in Point:
I was waiting in line at the grocery, I had a pound of ground beef and a taco kit. Two items. The woman in front of me had a cart 1/4 full of cat and dog food tins, insecticide, and assorted junk food. She turned her head, looked at me when the man in front of her left the register, [ I was fully expecting her to say "go ahead I have a lot and you have only two things] instead of doing the kind thing of letting me go ahead, she started taking out her pet food canisters and placing them on the conveyer.
I wasn’t about to get a holier than thou attitude and say something, so instead I retreated into my own head.
[phlospher’s thought] ** You fat, self indulgent human paraquot! YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO LET ME GO IN FRONT OF YOU WHEN YOUR CART IS FULL AND I HAVE TWO ITEMS? F*CK YOU FREAK!**
Wow that was extreme, but hey, I’d rather yell at someone in my head than make a scene?
How about you? Make a scene or do it in your head?
