What is the longest you have ever stayed mad?

Asked by Frenchfry (7554 points ) October 7th, 2010

My husband pissed me off. Bought a boat and I told him to wait after the holidays. Did he? Noooooo. I have been mad for one day so far. I am still mad.

I can see why you’re mad. I think the longest I’ve stayed mad is three days.

Lets see I was 14 when I said to my dad “make it good mother fucker cause it’s the last time you’ll ever touch me!” I’m 45 now so 31 years and counting.

I am lucky if I can go 24 hours.

It depends how you define mad. if you mean actually angry then about 5 or 10 minutes. if you mean holding a grudge combined with some mild anger then years.

@poisonedantidote very true… but in @Frenchfry‘s case, that would make me mad. My ex. purchased a brand new red BMW without discussing it with me! grrrr….

@BoBo1946 Ouch. And I bet she got the car and you got to pay for it? Long time grudge. :)
I let the length of time I stay mad match the offense that caused it. Most everything is pretty small potatos, so usually not too long. Really screw me and I’ll stay mad forever.

I’m mad at someone close to me right now :(

About eight years now. I’m still pissed at the way in which a former manager cut me loose from a job I had been holding for over a decade. Nothing but excellent reviews, then he started setting me up in a series of no win situations. It was only later that I found out that what he was really doing was manufacturing justification for future layoff plans. I’m not really pissed about being laid off, business needs change, I’m pissed that he felt the need to toy with me first. I would have preferred to have used the time to set myself up for a job change rather than trying to satisfy the fools errands I was being tasked with.

Fortunately, the stuff I am happy about far outweighs the stuff that I remain pissed over.

What @poisonedantidote said. @BoBo1946 that just blows my mind she’d do that!! What gall.

I only get mad if I talk about it..but I had some serious injustices done to me by two ex’s of mine that were fairly outrageous.

So.. I’ve been mad for a few years, ha.

I know it’s unhealthy to hold on to negativity & what not.. but I’m completely over what was done to me. Just because it can bring up anger within me when it’s talked about, doesn’t mean I haven’t “let it go”—just that I realize it’s something worth being angry over. It’s not like I dwell on it day in & day out—it’s more or less triggers.

It’s been a day and a half, and I am better. I can actually look at him and not glare. Now he has a boat but he can’t fix it till next year. HA

@Frenchfry I assume he’s a good swimmer, so first time you go out with him push him over the side. You might make sure he’s wearing a PFD.

Frenchfry's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I’ll keep that in mind. Nice suggestion.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Frenchfry You might as well have the last laugh. It will also make him wonder why you’re smiling all winter.:)

If I get mad at someone I love or a friend then I can stay mad at them about a day, I’m a big sucker for making up quick as hard as I try to stick to my guns. Getting mad at acquaintances or coworkers- bah, I usually write them off for days at a time.

I got mad when I found out how my sister was cheating our parents, about 25 years ago. I’m not still mad, but I still don’t trust her.

Mom2BDec2010's avatar

I can stay mad at someone for a long time. I’m still mad about things that happened 3 years ago.

BoBo1946's avatar

@Aster things were going down hill then, but it really started going down hill after that. We were divorced about year after that incident.

Aster's avatar

I’m surprised she didn’t leave the state with the red car.
