I’m generally a laid-back guy who likes smooth sailing on calm seas. I won’t shy away from conflict if it’s necessary, but I try to be accommodating and keep peaceful resolution as the goal. That being said, I sometimes feel a deep, almost uncontrollable urge to engage in an argument. Not in the context of a relationship, though. Those have enough static on their own without creating any extra. Besides, I don’t need to be in a relationship in order to piss someone off. That’s what social media is for.
So I find myself itching for an argument yet not wanting to just tear into someone out of the blue. I resolve this by arguing with online videos and television commercials. A quick and easy way to fold a fitted sheet, you say? NO DAMN WAY! “Four out of five dentists recommend it.” That’s because two of those four dentists are dumbasses! “A great-tasting, healthy alternative snack.” BULLSHIT!
I have no explanation. It’s just part of my weird world.
