Drama

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much drama is there in your life?

By drama, I mean being angry at someone or someone being angry at you for a variety of reasons (adultery, rumors, offensive comment, etc.). If you have not spoken to your father in five years because of a falling out, that still counts as drama.

I was cruising through at about a 2 for the longest time, but recent events have caused that number to increase dramatically. Just curious what the average is.

I tend to complicate things more than I'd like, though it is par for the course.

I'm normally pretty laid-back. I'm sure there are people in this world who are pissed at me about something, but I either don't know about it or don't care.

I tend to distance myself from anyone who causes drama in my life

Nothing real. As most people, my SO and I may get angry at each other for small nitpicky reasons but that goes away and is forgotten within an hour.

I'm a school board president, and a slumlord, and I hate dogs. 8.

But I'm too laid back to let it get to me.

This thread just infuriates me. Like I have time for THIS. And like I need to hear about OTHER PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS.

That should be my answer. I have 8-10 #'s in my phone that I've collected over the last few months that should be deleted, it is just easier that way. I was SUPPOSE to lay low next weekend, but my friend is in town (totally forgot), so I'm sure i'll be bumping up my number as the weekend progresses.

Its good to get some trouble into your life. Keeps it from becoming too placid.

I was around a 1 up until I met my girlfriend this year. After dealing with her family, it's gone up to around a 3.

Just like Darknite said, I'm sure there are other problems, but I don't really care.

1. Not because I get along with people but because I don't care.

Edit: I really should think about adding smilies to my posts because my online personality is becoming a dick.

Oh yeah:

I gave myself a 6...

My online life is almost continually filled with the most ridiculous, annoying, and some times hilarious drama. My real life has very little, I am actually very neutral and try to avoid drama as much as possible.

Right about a 3. The occasional dramatic issue...but overall pretty non-chalant life.

Hmmm, about a 2. When my wife is moody or angry I'd notch that up to a 7. I'm a very mild mannered person with hardly any moments of anger, so when my wife gets all moody it starts to cause me anxiety. I'll never get used to it.

The drama in my life is not mine. It is usually my sister and brother-in-law or my best friend.

Well right now it's a 8.
I've got too many things on my mind and my mom's at the hospital right now and the pressure is about to crush me.
