19 Things All Angry Criers Will Get

You're probably already crying before the argument even begins.

1. If you have a problem with someone, you spend ages planning what you're going to say to them.

2. You might even pre-emptively write down bullet points of what you're going to say, like planning a really aggressive essay.

3. Those bullet points are always rational, reasoned and cover everything you want and have to say.

"This time, I'll be calm and collected throughout" you say to yourself, foolishly.

4. But the moment you actually have to say any of it, you start blubbering.

5. And immediately forget everything you were going to say.

NBC

6. Actually, you probably start crying just in anticipation of the confrontation.

E! Entertainment Television

7. And only after the argument is over do you realise you never actually got to say all the stuff you wanted to say because you were TOO BUSY TRYING TO STOP CRYING.

8. That's if you can even get any words out at all, rather than blubbering and squeaking sounds instead.

9. When you go to complain about something, no one actually takes your complaint seriously.

NBC

They think you're being unreasonable, or worse, hysterical, which actually makes you want to be unreasonable and hysterical.

10. People think you're upset rather than angry, which is annoying because it diminishes your anger.

16. But it's actually worse if you have been expecting it.

You've spent the day worrying about it/getting angry and the moment it happens, it's like a dam bursting.

17. On the plus side, you know that if you do win an argument, even through your tears, it's because you're so clearly in the right.

18. You're also always prepared for a meltdown.

You probably have a post-cry strategy, involving very little eye contact and a quick getaway.

19. And you know that if someone can't handle your angry crying, they don't deserve your happy crying.
