See Halah's latest story (on-line).
Has anyone here gotten so upset recently they threw someone thru a wall?
No, but when I get really mad, I have a bunch of tupperware that I can throw around. It's very cathartic. It bounces around a lot and doesn't damage anything. Ah....that was fun.... all done now.....put the tupperware away.
No, but a lot of research has been done in the area of emotional intelligence, and it is relevant to this career. We can become conditioned to get predictably pissed, or otherwise be cranking on a lot of adrenaline, just a few steps chemically removed from Joe Halah.
I threw a pager once and a phone a few times (was very careful not to bean anyone---didn't want to be sued or arrested).
Slamming the phone down works for me. Feels great.
oh, and I love to think about punching my boss in the mouth with my fist. I have no idea how I would pull that off, but he is such an a** and most of his offensiveness comes out of his pie hole. Love him to taste his teeth.

The only time I did that hard enough to break the phone I was on a call with the home office. It was with someone high enough the food chain the he was probably definitely making quite a bit more than me. He basically told me that EDJ was going to be into my pocket for another $10k, if I didn't like it tough sh*t (it was a change that affected at most couple hundred out of 10,000 IR's, if you want the details search my posts from about 18 months ago when I left).
The bright side of that call was that I was mad enough to actually read a letter from a recruiter that day, where they usually went straight to file 13. My income and quality of life took a dramatic leap a few months after that call when I walked out of my EDJ office for the last time.
