How healthy is the emotion anger? Is it healthy to get mad as hell? Is it healthy to be so angry that you want to commit an act of violence? I am truly guilty of having violent thoughts. This led me to feeling very guilty. I have to ask, should I feel guilty? I am not sure. I am a law abiding citizen and I never break the law. I do not understand the mentality of someone that does.
We are hardworking people, we are honest, we pay our taxes, and we help people as much as we can. I feel like such a victim and frankly violated. Our neighbor calls me today to let me know that he thinks someone is squatting in our shell of a house. The first thing I felt was red hot anger that someone could actually go that far.
I went by the house and got the license plate number of the strange car, plus a description of it. I was going to let it go because he had called the police. Then as Scotty pointed out I needed an incident number for our records. On Tuesday I am calling our insurance agent and telling him to get on the demolition. It has to come down. No more Mrs. Nice Guy. This is ridiculous. I think that the house has been violated enough.
I met with three officers at the house. At first we had a misunderstanding because one of the officers had been there this morning and he felt the house was unsafe to go into. I agreed whole heartedly. It is not safe at all, the house is gross. The three officers did go into the backyard and they are “logging” the car in. Whatever that means. I do know that one of the officers moved his car so that he was blocking the car in. Not bad deed goes unpunished.
My anger has receded and quite honestly the 25 minutes I spent waiting for the officers to arrive I was pretty scared. I don’t know what kind of person is in there. I was so relieved to see the officers arrive like the cavalry. Music sounded in my ears. Yes, I am still a bit angry but I am no longer afraid. They came and took care of us. J
