My son has a real tepid temper, but the two of us still love him no matter what happens.
The other morning, the two of us decided to eat out at a nice diner as a family; My son was saying that the temperature control settings were off, but even though I thought the temperature control settings were fine, he kept asking the waiter if they could turn up the air conditioning a little bit. The waiter said he would see what he could do; Some guy commented on the air conditioning and said the temperature control settings were just great and that my son should quit asking about that. This entirely made my son mad and he started a little argument with this guy at the diner. My son got so miserable, he got up and he was storming over there to punch this guy in the face. Immediately I saw what was going on and I stopped my son. I told the waiter that the temperature control settings were great and the two of us needed our food to go along with the check. I didn’t want to see my son go to jail that evening because of this guy that was making him mad. Then the guy kept talking trash and finally I got mad and went over there and pushed him out of his chair. My son instantaneously was behind myself and others and the guy seemed scared to say anything else, then he entirely apologized for giving us a taxing time, and the two of us went on our way with no more trouble. When the two of us were in the car, I decided to crank up the A/C so my son could think more comfortable. He thanked myself and others for having his back.
