What is reasonable to be mad about is an entirely different story (and doesn't seem to apply here).
Story about that. I'm the lifeguard manager of a small neighborhood pool for my summer job (for non-English speakers, a lifeguard is one of those dudes with the red tubes trained in first aid that's there to enforce the rules, save folks from drowning, and maintain the facility, in my case. Like Baywatch, but I'm not sexy and I know it :( ). Pool gets low enough traffic that we're only assigned 2 guards at once, including me. On Sunday, other guy flies out of town without getting a replacement for his shift, and only texts me about it 5 minutes after we opened when I'm trying to call him up, and a guy I don't know is sent over from another pool.
The day ended with us screaming in each others' faces, inches apart, a poked finger away from knocking each others' teeth out, as a result of him bullying some of my patrons (calling swimmers patrons isn't exactly accurate, but we can't really call them customers) into leaving 10 minutes early, against my orders, on some trumped up justification from the Red Cross yada yada but really he just wanted to be out by 8. I was enraged primarily from him, as I said, bullying a mom and her two kids, and for the pretty massive disrespect he was showing towards my place as the pool's manager. Literally, if one of our hands had brushed against the other person as we waved them, blood was gonna flow.
The mom took her kids and left, which ended the standoff.
Anyways, point of the story is, if you're looking for stupid reasons people get into fights, lifeguard rule technicalities makes the list.
