Releasing anger

People have different way to release tense and stress.

We have problems in the office lately. Put everybody's motivation down because negotiating and cooperating could not work anymore. Still there're stupid technical problems, like computer errors and loosing important cd drivers.

I am not good in controlling my temper. And every day I have to face complaints, including silly complaints about computer errors. Come on...!!! Being technical support is not written in my working contract!
So this afternoon I blew up. There was computer error and I was in my other office already when it happened. My colleague called and expected I could help to fix it. Meanwhile THEY, the users, never listened to my advice or paid little attention on how to fix things. I'm not a technician!! but I am willing to learn to fix things yet am NOT patient enough to pass the knowledge AGAIN and AGAIN.

I shouted to him on the phone. The words came out from my mouth was not under control anymore. And well....I blamed him of all the computer errors. An hour later I realised I was a bit too much. It is silly thing. I should have controlled my words and explain things in better way.

My colleague is a sensitive hearted person. He always avoids direct attack but grumbling behind to release his anger or tense. I knew I hurted him that I felt bit guilty, but then I laughed out loud....

My other colleague called me. As he hung up the phone. He walked to the broken computer. Hit the monitor, put his finger in front of it, and shouted at it.

"YOU F***ING COMPUTER!! WHO DO U THINK YOU ARE?! LOOK WHAT U DID. HAPPY NOW SEEING ME FIGHTING WITH MY COLLEAGUE?!?!
ONLY COZ THIS IS A DUTCH COMPANY THAT U USE DEVIDE ET IMPERA TO US??!

&^r$&^*(&)_(_)*&t%%$$#^$*&^)*&)*&t$##" ==> Complete collection of Javanese swear words that are too VULGAR to be written here

Wahahahahahaha It was the first time in my life seeing a person cursing at OBJECT to release anger *laughing while imagining his funny way of cursing*

Yeah well.. I guess in some cases people come up with real anger management that won't be taught everywhere in therapies!!!
