The guy started to go on my nerve with no reason and he done a well job. After few minutes i pushed his turn off button.

I don't know if this also counts as family defense. But if i see someone abusing some other whether physically or verbally, i'll approach regardless of the condition. I can't stand abuses at any kind.

I can usually take quite a bit before I get that angry and I'm glad I've cooled down my temper but direct insults have gotten a couple of people slugged over the years. Been a long time though now. Usually just uncalled for insults would do it for me. There were a couple of people on Ask that I wouldn't have minded tangling with. But that's all in the past. I'm pretty mellow now.

Well, I know a few people that if I really though it would acctually accomplish something, I would try to beat some sense into their heads.

I don't honestly think I've ever hit anybody outside of just being playful, like when my best friend hit me in the shoulder, so I hit him back. I've never ever hit my sister and I've never had to defend myself like that, so hitting is just not something I do.

I've only ever hit one person, but it was family defense. It happened last week actually. He was making fun of my brother.

Frustration, I suppose. (I'm talking my sisters and I hitting each other, but it was never very hard, only enough to make my parents yell at us).

I'm  not a physically violent person, though, and I haven't hit anyone in years.

I think I have only hit someone while sparring in a controlled environment.

I don't think anyone was able to provoke me to physical violence in my life.

The only time I have ever hit anyone I was 5 or 6. The brat ticked me off and I gave a warning before hitting him. He figured since I was a girl it wouldn't hurt... It hurt. A lot. I knock his two front teeth loose. My mom made me go with her when she took the boy home, so I could apologize not only to him, but to his mother. We rang the doorbell and when the mother saw the bloodstains on his shirt she started carrying on about her "baby". My mom said she would pay for any dental bills. The mother was agreeing to that. Then my mom apologized for what I, her daughter, did. The mother stopped carrying on. And then smacked him because he got beat up by a girl.

I learned not to hit unless cornered at that point. I got in trouble twice for that one. First from my mom, and then when from my dad. He was a truck driver so it was a couple of days before he came home.
