One of my friends has hilarious fights with her boyfriend. She vents her anger by ripping the bed apart and throwing pillows everywhere. He calmly watches her and then asks, are you going to make the bed now? She has done other things too, such as throwing his phone out the window, throwing water at him, hiding his stuff, etc.
I was thinking of her today, and then I just saw someone have a hissy fit at work. He got angry on a conference call and literally threw his headset across the room and stormed to the elevators. I’m glad it didn’t hit anyone! Relationship hissy fits can be kind of funny, but I am not a fan of the work hissy fit 😛

Umm, no I don’t. That sounds like a tantrum a 5 year old would have!

I don’t, nor would I ever continue to date someone that does. That sounds immature and childish. There are better ways to express your anger than acting like a toddler.

@MrsPanda99: I used to, but not since we’ve been married. If I storm out I have nowhere else to stay.

@MissTatas: I would say the same thing, but it seems very common. Maybe my friends are weird. I guess I should watch out for flying projectiles when I’m around them 😛

@MrsPanda99: I’ll admit, sometimes i get a little whiny, but usually my wonderful FI either shoves food down my throat or takes me to bed. I swear, I’m like a 5 year old. I get fussy when I’m tired or hungry.
But we don’t throw things, hide things, etc. And most of the time, I’m just being silly.

@MrsPanda99: Oh man, I have to be the first person to say this? We both definitely do, although we don’t throw things or scream to the degree of a 2 year old.
I’m terrible when I’m on my period, I hate the skin I’m in and EVERYTHING drives me crazy so sometimes after I’ve said enough terrible things to him for no reason I go in the bathroom and cry.
He will get upset about stupid things (usually when he’s been drinking) and end up stomping off to his man cave for a few hours.

No, neither of us are that way at all. We’re both fairly even-tempered people. 🙂

My husband definitely has little tantrums sometimes. He doesn’t throw things or anything like that, but he gets pissy like a teenage girl if something is frustrating him, and he’ll start swearing and getting rough with it like it’s gonna somehow magically fix and do what he wants it to do if he starts slamming it down on things. I just laugh at him and his little fits. He gets over them quickly enough and no permanent damage is done 😛

@iarebridezilla: My FI does that too, but not very often. I calmly explain to him that beating the computer won’t make it work faster and that throwing the TV remote doesn’t increase its function. It makes me laugh…I’m sure I wouldn’t laugh if he was throwing the remote at me though!

We both get frustrated but not violent. That’s really immature in my opinion.

neither one of us are fighters. we both think it’s immature to fight over petty, stupid things. we are 2 very calm and patient people

Definitely not. When he gets upset/annoyed/etc he’s the king of the stupid, sulky, sullen silent treatment-drives me nutso. I’m like a major over communicator so when I’m upset I just talk and talk and talk until I’ve said something stupid and then I’m sorry and not mad anymore haha

I’ve gone to the bathroom and cried a few times when I get overwhelmed, but I equate that to taking the time to havfe my space and sort through my feelings. It allows me to collect my thoughts so I don’t say something I will regret.

Oh lord do I ever. I don’t throw things or get violent or distructive but yeah I can get downright irrational and loud at times. Thankfully I have a DH that sees past the ridiculous to understand that sometimes I am just a wee bit irrational.
He is always as cool as a cucumber, it is crazy.
