Lord give me strength! That is always a favorite of mine. When anger is taking over one's emotions the mouth tends to let loose. And in the past week I'm sure a lot of letting loose has been going on. We all have that one line... or five, that really encompass those special, singular moments of rage. These are the lines that let others know it's times to hide, children know to run and strangers often just cry. It's a signature line, that expresses emotion honestly and to perfection.

Redditor u/PCubiles wanted everyone to divulge what responses are like knee jerk reactions when their nerves are tested by asking.... What's your favorite thing to say when you're angry?

DISBELIEF!

"I can't believe you've done this." awomanwithaphone

ADAM. tonybenwhite

In German. 

For some reason i say Jävlar which means something like damnit in Swedish, meanwhile I'm Norwegian. Validalo

I say Sheibe. Don't even know how to spell it. Probably not saying it right. Don't know any other German words but yup I say sh!t in German every single time. Not even when I'm mad. I swear in everyday conversation and I think I just used that to hide it so my slightly Puritan coworkers (some are old and some are devout church goers) don't get offended. They're pretty nice people and they don't shove their beliefs down my throat so I don't want to shove mine down theirs. Nestreeen

Anger Management!

"Ooh, this makes me very angry." I was thinking of Marvin The Martian lol. DumperDump69

I tend to get overly polite when angry. I had an argument with a family member on the phone recently and said "I am very angry and will be hanging up now, good day to you!" zhuzhy

Then I have demonic anger. 

I have two levels of angry I've learned. I have shut down/avoidance angry. I get quite, dismissive and try to avoid the confrontation.

Then I have demonic anger. Full blown seeing red mouth foaming angry. I don't hit that often but when I do I absolutely lose my sh!t. It's kinda scary honestly because I get so heated I feel like I'm going to explode. toolschism

Stubbing...

Giphy

I normally don't swear much when angry but when I stub my toe or stuff, I say exactly the words: God f-ing damn it!! Holy Crap. sachiimu

Cheers!

"You're the reason why I drink!" Dan-D-Lyon

Okay Mom.... Foreigner0900

Silence.... 

I have learned the art of staying quiet when angry. Reddit

This form of way to deal with anger doesn't take your anger and saves it up. You don't hold on to your negative thoughts.

Instead you take those emotions and let them go. Instead of saving up anger inside of you, which will indeed hurt your mental health, you take those feelings and realize that being angry isn't the answer. So instead you forget and keep on walking. Tsoof_S

Diffusing.  

I love you. It diffuses situations nicely. Why get angry at a store clerk? They and their incompetence will be out of your life in minutes. Not worth words, let alone anger. Jarcus78

I definitely could murder people with words....

Angry at a situation: "You've GOT to be KIDDING me."

Angry at a person: a stoic "Yeah, please never do that again."

If I legitimately snap, I'll usually break out the comedic / obscure lines, like "I don't know what the Kellogg's Frosted DAMN you're thinking, but..." because I think it helps de-escalate my own anger and it mitigates the chances of actually hurting someone's feelings.

I definitely could murder people with words, but I feel like the satisfaction of doing that would never justify the possibility of opening peoples old emotional wounds that they've spent years healing and coming to terms with. onecollectivepotato

Gosh!

I have a habit of saying "god bless America" instead of "God darn it." I blame my parents for not using more expletives. hugs_n_slugs

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or ":zipper_mouth_face:" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk to him about it.

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?

We're all well aware of the weird, horrible, predatory things men do when attracted to women. But what about when women are the culprits?

We've all heard how parenting is a full-time job. So it's not surprising to learn that parents have discovered plenty of quirks and methods to make things just a little bit more efficient during that eternal slog.

Stupid is as stupid does. And it’s pretty obvious when some poor, misinformed, potentially ignorant soul needs to be put in their place. Luckily, there are a lot of witty ways to do just that. We love a good euphemism.

Wanna know the best way to call out stupidity when you see it? Stay tuned.

U/lientubay asked: What's the best euphemism for telling people that they're stupid?

​Get a load of these sick burns. I swear, the people of Reddit are harsh.

Call outs are a universal language.

In Russian we have "intelligent thoughts have always followed him, but he was faster".

Humphr1es

We have something similar in German: "Intelligence is chasing you, but you are faster."

Be your own Easter Bunny.​

You could hide your own Easter eggs.

Bdiz78

The great Harvey Korman had some Alzheimer's @ 2005, and he still went on a talk show. They asked him how he was doing and he said he was OK. "Now I can hide my own Easter eggs." RIP.

Gas-Blaster

That’s cold.​

“At this point, you can only impress me."

Roman_Suicide_Note

This reminds me of something I saw in a show recently. One character said "Would you think less of me if ____." The other character said "I could never think less of you."

Catty_wampus

​I lol’d.

I think I saw this one here previously "You aren't the biggest idiot in the world but you better hope they don't die".

Soalindie

Once told this to my brother, his immediate response was "hey, please don't die".

Srakrn

It takes a very intelligent person to properly call out a dumb person. Weird how that works, huh?​

When the bears are smarter than the tourists.​

Now I know what Douglas Adams was talking about.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."

BerenTheBold

As the park rangers in Yellowstone say- making a bear-proof trash can is very difficult due to the considerable overlap between the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Lahmmom

​That’s a gross mental image.

In Greece we say "when it was raining brains, you had an umbrella".

GSavvage

In German we ask God for help. "God, let there be raining brains" this sounds so weird but idk how to express it better lol.

Edit: In German it's "Gott, lass Hirn regnen".

Foxpawdot

It’s probably a bad sign when your lawyer calls you dumb.

Lawyer to client who shared detailed attorney-client privileged strategy memorandum with a whole bunch of people, including an adverse party:

Client: "Is there anything you can do to fix this?"

Attorney: "No, you've pretty much waived the privilege and now they know everything."

Client: "Is there anyway to put a positive spin on this?"

Attorney: "Well, I suppose the judge might buy that this proves that you lack the mental capacity to form specific intent."

Malibulobo

These next ones are just plain cold, but probably very much deserved.​

Meanness from a Canadian is probably well-earned.

Ahh Terry, having you around is like losing three good men.

StrykerSeven

Oof, that’s harsh.

He's so far behind he thinks he's first.

Perstn

I had a keychain as a kid that said, "She who laughs last thinks slowest.”

KatieSedai

Those are some gross socks.

Once heard someone say "Well he's about as sharp as a sock full of soup".

Angrypunishment

"Sharp as a marshmallow" was one that went around my friend circle.

Rubywolf27

In the words of the great prophets Smash Mouth, “I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed”. That self-burn is perhaps one of the most classic euphemisms. And I just almost misspelled “euphemism”. So I can definitely relate to that lyric.

A good way to exercise your brain? Keep thinking of creative ways to insult people. Trust me, it works like a charm
