You threaten my family, my loved ones, or my friend and you’ll see my claws big time. Also when I played sports a lot. I hated to give up anything to the opposition.

When dazed and confused drivers pass my daughter’s school bus as it approaches to pick her up on the busy two-lane highway we live along.

I’m an easy-going person and has an unlimited amount of kindness, but I never approve of anyone who take advantage of me. I’m always happy to help when you are in neeed, but never when you are lazy.

Also I don’t feel like welcoming anyone who forces me to give up what I like and like what they like. I never ask you to change, why do you?

My dogs. They’ve been banned from the bed while we’re sleeping. They hog the space. So now they’ve been relegated back to their own beds.

I’m territorial about my home and garden. I don’t want people coming in unless I invite them in.

* When an insect is roaming around in my abode. They are either escorted outside or receive the death penalty.

* When a rat was scampering through our back garden (attracted by the chicken coop belonging to the neighbors directly behind us). One was chased away with a broom.

* When a dog is about to pass my partner and me while out walking. He has a phobia of dogs from when he was attacked by one as a child.

* When a person invades my physical or perceived private space without permission. I once interviewed a guy, and while giving him a tour of our office, he walked so closely behind me that his chin was almost resting on my shoulder. Maybe that just falls under the category of “creepy”.
