Would you like to visit an anger room?

Outside online had an article about an anger room where you could pay about $60 and then take a bat and smash plates and various electronics.  How much you pay depends on the things you choose to smash.  There are times I feel like smashing my work computer, but I don't think smashing random electronics or plates would make me feel better.  How about you, would you like to visit an anger room?

My anger at times would love an outlet like this.  The environmentalist in me won't allow it.

I really need a pillow at work to punch, or scream into.  Our archaic computer software is ridiculous.  Sometimes, I want to ask "Why do we do things like this"  The three Bobs don't like when people like me ask questions, and it can be seen as an affront to their policy and then you are tageted.  Fuck it.  You want me to do ridiculous things that waste money, FINE!

Yes, I woke up in a bad mood.

I also would NOT feel good destroying things of value.

I saw a documentary where they had such rooms during WW2 in buildings where people were trying to crack enemy codes.

Of course, back then you were rightly considered an idiot if you broke something of value so what they had were punching bags, etc.

I've watched TV shows where poor people decide in a well-reasoned moment, say, they'll no longer need a smart phone so they throw a $600 phone into the ocean - instead of selling it for a couple hundred.  Having grown up poor it destroys that "suspension of disbelief" we experience while enjoying fiction and feels so unrealistic that the whole story unravels for me.

I used my bicycle for that. If I had a bad day at work, nothing like a hard ride to get over it. Once I was so pissed that I set a Strava PR by over 6 minutes on a 6.5 mile segment without even thinking about riding fast.

Over the years I’ve used the gym, the bike and MA classes as an outlet for frustrations. 

Hitting the heavy bag is the most effective means for releasing the pent up issues/energies.  But I’ve learned that once you start letting it out, the floodgates can fall away easily and I’ve injured myself by continuing on when I should have abated.
