Anger vs. Exasperation

dailychuckle


A young girl who was writing a paper for school came to her father and asked, "Dad, what is the difference between anger and exasperation?"

The father replied, "It is mostly a matter of degree. Let me show you what I mean."

With that the father went to the telephone and dialed a number at random. To the man who answered the phone, he said, "Hello, is Melvin there?"

The man answered, "There is no one living here named Melvin. Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial".

"See," said the father to his daughter. "That man was not a bit happy with our call. He was probably very busy with something and we annoyed him. Now watch..."

The father dialed the number again. "Hello, is Melvin there?" asked the father.

"Now look here!" came the heated reply. "You just called this number and I told you that there is no Melvin here! You've got lot of guts calling again!" The receiver slammed down hard.

The father turned to his daughter and said, "You see, that was anger."

The father dialed the same number three more times, with increasingly furious responses. Finally he said, "Now I'll show you what exasperation means."

He dialed the same number, and when a violent voice roared, "Hello!"

The father calmly said, "Hello, this is Melvin. Have there been any calls for me?".

Today's Spiritual Quote
I lowered my eyes. When I raised them again the angel was still there, it is true, hanging rather far under the ceiling... but it was no living angel, only a painted wooden figurehead off the prow of some ship, one of a kind that hangs from the ceiling in sailor’s taverns, nothing more. end quote
