It may surprise you to know that 70% of human behavior is based on emotions, not logic. In fact, it is very easy to get increasingly irritated at people, places, and things.
As an example, does any of this scenario sound familiar?
It's Monday morning and you are ready to face the day. Everything at home is calm - pets are happy, coffee is ready, your hair and make-up turned out great, and you look and feel good. You get in the car and slowly and methodically enter the parking lot otherwise known as morning rush hour. You finally get some open space and as you move into the fast lane, a very slow driver creeps out in front of you. As you hit the brakes with required force, you take a deep breath, think a few unkind things, but try to let it go. At lunch, the retired guy in front of you is bitchin' about the one too many pickles he got on his burger and now you are running late. You decide to eat on the way back to the office only to find your order is completely wrong. How dar that inconsiderate old man ruin your lunch over a damn pickle - I bet he couldn't really taste the difference anyway! With no time to go back to the restaurant, you run on the radio to invite a pleasant distraction only to hear about a highway shooter, racial rant, or political attack. As you continue on, all you can think about is how your whole day has been ruined by idiots.
