    I dont know if anyone here cares, but here goes:

    I was working on a board game project with a 3 of my friends, and i was in charge of the board. They werent working hard, and the girl who was making the pieces fake "male parts" out of the clay, and the other 2 girls got into it too. I got mad cuz i was the only one working, and to make things worse, the spaces on the board were made of glitter glue, and all 3 of them kept messing it up, putting stuff on it, and shaking the table. I yelled at them, even cursed a little, and im not the kind of person who does that, and i think i even made a few death threats! Now i feel really guilty about it, even though they laughed it off, cuz theyre some of my really good friends.

    So, thats my story. Ill see them again at school on monday, so if any of you have comments about this or suggestions on how i should deal with it, id really appreciate it.

    Tell them they need to take it seriously, but hold the curses next time. It won't help, but if you express your discontent, that won't get you in trouble.

    Well first off you only had to ask them to stop messing with the glitter since when that's dry the whole thing could be messed up. Second why didn't at least one other person help you? That could made it a lot less chaotic.

    Don't feel guilty at all! You had a right to be mad of course you probably should have restrained from saying ALL of that (Death threats, cussing, ect.) but that's you're fault...they still were wrong for making a mess and not working, pluss their your friends! If they are good friends they're understanding friends!

    Remember that. :)

    I tried that, they never listened and when they were working on the project, the one making the game pieces was being a control freak. I dont know exactly what it was that drove me over the edge, but sometimes these people annoy me, and im guessing that today was the last straw.

    It was a big project so everyone had at least one thing to work in; i was in charge of the board and the directions, everyone else was working on the cards, the pieces, stuff like that.

    This helps a lot. :)

    I get it- I get mad too when people are wasting time when there's stuff that needs to get done. Since I know I'm likely to get mad, I try to keep friends on track with encouragement, and say things like, "hey, I know you're really good with this- can you do _____ for us?" Or whatever. If you speak with encouragement rather than anger, I've found it works a lot better and keeps everyone in a happier and funner mood.

    i actually think you were right to tell them off. but on monday, just ask them if they understand why you got frustrated. even if they are good friends you should still tell them if they are being unfair.
