"I never lose my temper unless I believe that it would be detrimental not to.”
Like when I am at receiving end of unwarranted rudeness.
Face a racist slur.
Get punished for a good deed.
Have someone take my kindness for weakness.
See my generosity as a lever to pull.
Nip me with the serpent’s tooth of ingratitude.
Make me feel bad about myself.

Think my silence is ignorance, not patience.
Set me up.
Betray my trust.
Make a mockery of my friendship.
Lie to me barefacedly.
Play two ends against the middle and make me one of the ends.
Embroil me in controversy without my permission.
Use my name or authority much in the same way.
Take me for granted.
Use me then discard like a used tissue.
What have I missed out?
