Salt- Its proportion is important in a dish. If it is very less, the dish comes across as less delicious. We get the feel, ‘ something is missing’. If salt is in excess, it is a major spoiler.

Rudeness, conspiracies, frauds, taunts, deliberate belittling of people, backbiters make me angry.
With age, I have learned to ignore such attitudes. In some situations, where I have to deal with people with such natures, I tell them frankly that I don’t like their attitude- without using any abusive language or actions. I try to secure and cushion myself from them .
