+108410498 to you superman. You summed it up very well.

For instance, I feel really good when someone compliments me on how well of a business man I am for being 18 and how great of work I do. However, yesterday, I felt absolutely belittled by a customer who was very rude because he thought that I was the one who was not doing something correct and he was almost demanding his money back. I showed him up by working 8 hours on the damn thing and fixing the "problem" (guys who read the thread, this was about the wireless printer), even though it was a Vista set back, NOT a problem on my end. He didn't say a damn thing when he came and got it today, and that made me feel like the better person and better inside.

I know that its good to be competitive but up to what extent?
I don't get the burn if I lose. For example, if I were driving on a four lane road (two each side), and a car had come up aside me either slowly, or fast, I usually have almost an uncontrollable urge to get ahead or past them.

If someone at the grocery store has a few items and asks kindly if they could go ahead, or doesn't and I just see they only have a few items. I will usually let them ahead of me. But if they were to just go in front of me with no interaction. I will be a bastard about it... Which, personally I think they would be to for doing it in the first place.

I do have a natural feeling to be the best I can be. But usually it's against myself. Although sometimes some people will automatically become a equal competitor in life's game. Whether they want to be or not. Sometimes unknowingly too.

also i forgot to add that i too have road rage against ppl that are inconsiderate and rude to others on the road. for ex: a person driving 55mph on the far left fast lane and doesnt move the F**K out of the way! i usually speed up, cut them off and then break in front of them slowing down to about 40-45 mph. i know its crazy but i dispise rude ppl. you may find it hard to believe but i am one of the nicest most generous ppl you'll meet BUT if you cross me . . . . . its not good .

That's pretty dangerous...You shouldn't be on the roads.

For somebody that claims to be intelligent, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. You sir, are a dangerous moron.
