Most Ridiculous Reasons Adults Threw Temper Tantrums

Just because you grow older and occasionally more wizened by the endless series of curveballs that life decides to throw your way doesn't mean that you're not susceptible to giving in to a full on childish temper tantrum. Sometimes, you simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and you hit your breaking point out of nowhere. Or, perhaps you end up being on the receiving end of a particularly irrational breakdown. Maybe you're out and about, minding your business at a grocery store, waiting in line patiently, only to end up seeing an adult completely lose themselves over an item that they thought was discounted, but come to realize is actually selling at full price. Or, better (worse?) yet, you're out driving around and realize that you're sharing the road with another driver who seems bent on making everyone else's life miserable by recklessly navigating the road with nothing but rage in their eyes.

You really never know when you're going to cross paths with someone who has ceased to maintain their grasp on peace. The moment that you witness that temper tantrum present itself though, that's when it gets very real, very quickly. It ultimately can fall on you to proactively, mindfully work to diffuse the situation as soon as possible. The thing about catching someone in the middle of a temper tantrum is that they're most often likely to lash back out at anyone and everyone that's just trying to help them settle down. Sometimes the best course of action can be to simply remove yourself from the environment altogether.

With that being said, these folks were certainly tested when they found themselves sharing space with someone who basically lost their mind for a hot second. We're not sure if the general reaction when you see one of these kinds of temper tantrums is panic, compassion, or more anger. In these tumultuous times that we all find ourselves muddling through, it seems like more than ever people are hitting their breaking limits. The world's always been a mess of chaos and life has certainly always loved to be difficult. But when you find yourself living through an era marked by historical adversity, it's particularly tough to keep that head above water and not lose sight of the fact that the hard times will give way at one point or another to just a little bit of that long sought after peace.

At the end of the day, we only hope that these adults were able to learn from their momentary temper tantrums, put the pieces back together, and crack on to do things a bit better and more calmly in the future. That's all you can really do. Just learn from the times that you weren't able to share the best version of yourself with the rest of the world. And I mean, hey, you might even be able to look back at the most ridiculous temper tantrums from a vantage point in the future that has you laughing over just how ridiculous things ended up getting.
