HORRIBLE AND CHILDISH

Question Of The Week, 3-6-17

What are you like when 
you don’t get what you want?
 (Comments are added to this page after you post them.  Thanks for your responses.)

I rarely get my own way so I tend to quietly fume then move on. No point in causing an argument, I experienced too many of those growing up. 


The few times I want to get 'my own way' I have to fight tooth and nail for it. What I find truly irritating is that AFTER I get my own way someone (read the hubs) always says what a great idea it was that WE had. Huh!! But seriously, I'm all growed up now and if I don't get my way I just stamp my foot and pout and ... oh, wait....

I am the youngest and have trained my siblings well. They know it is easier to give in than fight me on having my way. It has been ages since I have had to have a "horrible and childish" fit to get my way. LOL

I usually move on...UNLESS it is something very important and then I become that Italian screaming lady.


I wish I had a funny or interesting answer but I'm not any different. I don't want for much. Which by the way, is heaven.

I am a bit wishy washy and usually go with whatever unless I am really disappointed then I give the silent treatment.


I'm like Patti. I'm usually disappointed for a while and then go along with it.

It depends on how important it is/was to me.
If it is really important I go quiet and scheme for a change.
Mostly I move on

I try not to get into those kind of situations to begin with. I'm at the age where I don't like being played for a fool (happened quite a bit at work), so when someone does, I get quite vocal about it.

I usually move on unless I think I can get my way by trying a second time! (Rob) 


my own way seems to be less and less important as i grow older (and perhaps wiser)


I think it depends on the issue. If it's really important then I don't back down easily, but if it's trivial, then I go with the flow. 

It depends on what it is I've been wanting. Then again, I live alone so I'm the one who has the final say on whether or not I'm going to do what I want, or get what I want.

  14. The same as I always am, I think. Like River, I live alone. I buy what I want if or when I can afford it...if I can't afford something, I don't fret about it. It is what it is. :)

  15. I try a few times, them shut down n stop talking. I really hate the phone computer voices too. Can't argue with them.

  16. Since I grew up as the middle child, not getting my way was the norm, so I just always had to go with that. But there might have been some pouting. :) There might be some pouting sometimes still.
