This is a question Tantrums

Pooster says: "When we were younger my little brother had a tantrum which ended when he threw a fork and it stuck in my other brother's cheek for a bit." Tell us your tales of screaming kids, and adults acting like children.

My last glass-lined thermos
broke when I braked hard to avoid a driver who cut me off. This happened directly before a traffic stop and I had time to run to his window and show him my thermos, bleeding beautiful, steaming coffee into the brisk air.

He glanced at my horrible visage and took off to get away. I launched the thermos in a high arc and hit his car. My thermos broke apart into many tiny glittery pieces therein. As I picked up the shards, I apologized continuously to bystanders, for my unseemly display of anger. Repeatedly bending over and standing up, I well played the part of the contrite peasant in a feudal-era Japanese movie.

That happened 30-years ago and I'm glad to this day that I got my anger all out my system with one very nice toss.

A good toss is all it takes for me too, usually

Where do you get a glass lined thermos these days?
The stainless steel ones don't leak but they're useless at their actual job of keeping things hot.

I'm old and cheap: The incident took place around 1979. (I place the year by the vehicle I had.) Steel-lined thermos' were new and my glass-lined one was old. It might have even been my father's. I still have a glass-lined thermos of his in my house.

Yeah, I've replaced a few glass liners in my day, but not since then. I did purchase a steel thermos and I concur with your endorsement.
