Anger vs. Exasperation

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ A young girl who was writing a paper for school came to her father and asked, "Dad, what is the difference between anger and exasperation?"

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ The father replied, "It is mostly a matter of degree. Let me show you what I mean."

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ With that, the father went to the telephone an dialed a number at random. To the man who answered the phone, he said, "Hello, is Melvin there?"

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ The man answered, "There is no one living here named Melvin. Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial them?"

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ "See," said the father to his daughter. "That man was not a bit happy with our call. He was probably very busy with something, and we annoyed him. Now watch . . ."

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ The father dialed the same number again. "Hello, is Melvin there?" asked the father.

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ "Now look here!" came the heated reply. "You just called this number, and I told you that there is no Melvin here! You've got a lot of nerve calling again!" The receiver was slammed down hard.

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ The father turned to his daughter and said, "You see, that was anger. Now I'll show you what exasperation means."

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ He dialed the same number, and a violent voice roared, "HELLO!"

┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ The father calmly said, "Hello, this is Melvin. Have there been any calls for me?"
