It's when I get caught up in those stupid fights that I question myself for posting in forums like these, so I guess I can't blame any pros for not posting here.
Years ago I kept a yellow stickie note on my car's dashboard that said "F.I.D.O." It was short for "Forget It, Drive On." If someone cut me off in traffic -- if someone swiped a parking space I was headed for -- forget it, drive on. Don't lose your temper. Especially
don't lose your temper when you're driving two tons of metal and glass.
I need to put a F.I.D.O. stickie note on my computer.
Forget It, Drive On.
I'm like you, I sometimes find myself in furious typing matches over the silliest shit -- and I think, "Why am I losing my cool over this?!"
I still post here -- some days more than others -- because I still enjoy the company of you, Alex, Budman, Charles and the other long-timers. Yes, even Allen! I just have to remind myself that it's supposed to be a source of fun, not stress. When I start flipping out, it's time for a short break.
