Learn Mnemonics about Bad-tempered people
Hey Amigos!! Have you ever come across any blockheads who love to make a fuss out of every smallest thing they face?
Well, if you haven’t yet, here we go! Hope this story will give you a slight hint of what exactly bad-tempered creatures are!
25th April, it was a sunny day with the sun casting over its blessing in form of scorching heat and drenching sweat all over the Chennai. Krishna, a young lad has just visited his native place to meet his grandparents and spend his summer holidays. It was around 5 pm in the evening when suddenly he heard the chaos of youngsters and ticks of cricket bat and bowl. India is a country where cricketers are preached as Gods. So, it wasn’t amusing, that our young lad sprang upon his bed just to hit some centuries and take few wickets. With the excitement and determination of being a true Viratian of the evening, Krishna inquired his grandpa, who was engrossed watching IPL match between RCB and MI,
Krishna: Dadu!! If you don’t mind, can I steal the show by being a true viratian today?
Grandpa: Sure krishu, I would love to dine with a true champ!! But how?
Krishna: Dadu, there are some boys playing outside in the colony, if you don’t mind can I join them?
Grandpa: Sure krishu! Just make sure the ball doesn’t hit Mrs. Desai’s window.
Krishna: Why dadu? Is she a lady Hitler of this colony?
Grandpa: Yeah krishu! She is indeed; just avoid hitting shots that side, everything would be fine!
Krishna: Thank you dadu! You are the best dadu of this entire universe! Love you so much!
After getting permission from Grandpa, Krishna’s wings were on fire!! He joined the kids outside and started playing cricket together. He was playing some great cricket shots but it seemed that ball was not in his court that day!! The ball hit the window of Mrs. Desai.
There was a big 10cm hole in Mrs. Desai’s beloved window pane!!
Since other guys were localities they knew the rage of Mrs. Desai which was about to unleash!! So, without wasting a single second they left our poor young lad to face the tyranny of the beast!
As expected, Mrs. Desai raged out of her home, holding the ball in one hand and broomstick on the other.
Mrs. Desai: Hey you, tiny chipmunk! Was it you, who broke my beautiful windowpane?
Krishna: I am so sorry!!
Mrs. Desai: I don’t want your bloody sorry!! Where are those other scoundrels!!
Krishna on realizing that he is in big trouble tried to mollify Mrs. Desai by touching her feet.
Krishna: I am new to this place aunty ji!! Please let me go. I won’t play hereafter.
Mrs. Desai: Your juvenile tricks won’t work on me, kiddo, nor my windowpane going to get refurbished.
Krishna: I realize I committed a mistake, I will ask my dadu to pay for your losses aunty.
Mrs. Desai: So that you can break it again!! I want to put this end to this shit!!
Saying this she took the bat from Krishna’s hands and smashed it against the ground.
In no time, Krishna’s beloved bat was in two pieces!!
Krishna couldn’t hold this anymore and broke out stating,
Krishna: Dadu was very right! You are such a bad-tempered and annoying woman!! I hate you, aunty!! You are the worst person I ever meet.
So, fellas, these are the characters of bad-tempered people. In this chapter, we will learn more words which are meant for them.
Here is a list of few words:
Meaning: 1) angry and bitter: caustic, biting, or rancorous especially in feeling, language, or manner an acrimonious dispute
Locked in a mean-spirited, bitter argument? That’s an acrimonious situation that might result in fists flying unless you and your opponent can cool down.
If you’re familiar with the adjective acrid, which means “having a strong unpleasant taste or smell,” you might guess that acrimonious probably refers to something unpleasant, too. And you’d be right.
Until the mid-nineteenth century, acrimonious meant the same thing as acrid. But while acrid is still most commonly used in a literal sense (as in “an acrid odor”), acrimonious is now used to describe things like angry and bitter speeches or debates.
Both words come to English from the Latin word Acer, meaning “sharp.” Keep sharp objects locked up if a showdown gets too acrimonious.
There was an acrimonious struggle between the modernists or liberals who accepted and accommodated these discoveries and the conservatives or fundamentalists who rejected them.
The bipartisan budget talks were a rare bright spot in an otherwise acrimonious relationship between Republicans and Democrats in Washington.
Meaning: severe, expressing strong criticism or forceful opinions
His most trenchant criticism is reserved for the party leader, whom he describes as “the most incompetent and ineffectual the party has known”.
If you’re trenchant, it means you think or say smart, sharply worded things that cut right to the heart of the matter. A trenchant observation is one that makes people scratch their chins thoughtfully, or wince with embarrassment for whomever you’re talking about, or both.
The word trenchant originates from trenchant, which in French means “sharp” or “cutting,” and it’s related to the word trench, which originally meant a line carved in wood and later came to mean a ditch carved into the earth. The word is often used to describe political commentary or cultural criticism.
One person known for her trenchant wit was the author and critic Mary McCarthy, who once said of the writer Lillian Hellman, “Every word she writes is a lie, including the ‘and’ and the ‘the’.”
In a trenchant critique of the ruling, National Review’s David French wrote that the majority was “relegating lawful gun owners to second-class-citizen status.
Meaning: marked by bad temper, malevolence, or spite
In early Western physiology, a person’s physical qualities and mental disposition were believed to be determined by the proportion of four bodily humors: blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile. The last of these was believed to be secreted by the spleen, causing feelings of disposition ranging from intense sadness (melancholia) to irascibility. This now-discredited association explains how the use of “splenetic” (deriving from the Late Latin spleneticus and the Latin splen, meaning “spleen”) came to mean both “bad-tempered” and “given to melancholy” as well as “of or relating to the spleen.”
In later years, the “melancholy” sense fell out of use, but the sense pertaining to ill humor or malevolence remains with us today.
Fractious, Crotchety, Peevish are synonyms of splenetic.
When the workers learned, their paychecks would be delayed, they displayed their splenetic natures by breaking the accountant’s door.
Matt was splenetic after his wife left him for another man.
