Why losing your cool is not cool

This morning I pulled my typical try-to-get-as-much-done-as-possible-before-leaving-the-house routine. I left myself 10 minutes to drive to an eye appointment that is about a 10-minute drive from here. When I turned the key in the ignition: nothing. I'm not sure what had drained my battery, but it was dead. I grabbed the jumper cables out of the car that my wife would be using shortly to give myself a jump. Angry that the cables were all tangled up, I flailed them about to untangle them--and hit myself square on the bridge of the nose with the end of the jumper cable. A heavy-duty jumper cable. It chewed a chunk out of my nose and blood started running down my face. Thankfully they had band-aids at the eye doctor's office.
