Do you agree with this woman's advice?
Is this a good method for dealing with anger?

...makes sense to me.

I mean, if you think about it, you only become as angry as you ALLOW yourself to become....and generally, it's over something that doesn't require that much of your energy. Anger simply prolongs a bad situation. Keeping a reign on your emotions and expressing them in a more positive manner, considering the situation logically and using those skills to find a viable solution is always preferable to lashing out.
Let's be honest here.....freaking out on someone or something only makes the overly emotional person seem 'out of control' and quite frankly, makes them look like a fool.

Showing someone how much they have made you angry just gives them all the power. So sure "I never did mind the little things" seems like a perfectly reasonible responce to someone who has pissed you off.
