I remembered an incident between me and my previous business partner that made me felt frustrated way beyond my "I can still smile"- threshold after he proved how useless he was.
Why did I got frustrated, you may ask? Well..
For more than 5 months of preparations and meetings, he had not even started on the things he promised to do, and yet he kept giving me advice on how to do my part!
I was mustering all the strength I could to not slap him in the face, really. Instead, I pointed out all of his mistakes and unacceptable behaviors in a very sarcastic tone enough to make him feel attacked and annoyed.
