  • When they piss me off, with their stupidity, LOL.
  • I'm not a 'nice' kind of guy. I typically tell you how it is.
  • When I'm sick...I loose any patience I had to say it nicely. Some people get taken aback when I let it out bluntly.
  • About two minutes after my alarm clock buzzes.
  • When people won't leave me alone. I only tell it like it is once, then you will never hear anything from me again.
  • All the time. I hate when people sugar coat things. I can be pretty blunt. Not many people like that.
  • I always speak my mind. More specifically, when I love and respect somebody, I don't have to be afraid to give them my entire mind and heart. I always try to be nice and understanding. I try to tell it like it is. Best thing we can do is try to communicate well with others and level with where that person is coming from.
  • when i am being ignored.
  • The moment I realize that they just aint getting it when I am being nice ..Now it's time to be blunt..LOL :)
  • When I get pissed off, I usually regret my actions, but, I wouldnt change any of it, all of my actions brought me to where I am in my life right here and now! You want an egg roll, I have a couple here...
  • It takes a long time for me to do this (at work), but once I have had enough, I'll speak my mind.
  • i tell people like it is when there wrong and im right and i know it but their just being stupid
  • After I listen to Elvis Costello's "What's So Simple About Peace Love and Understanding"
  • I never worry about being "nice" when is time to tell it like it is. I call things by their name. I wouldn't sugar-coat any BS by anyone.
  • It varies with my mood. I just bit my tongue and didn't answer a moron's question re, "How much do I make a year if I make $500/wk?"
  • Every day!
  • some days ya just gotta grab them by the uni-brow and say "listen asshat"
  • After the first try of "being nice and understanding" just so you can feel you were "nice and understanding." But they never get it, so don't waste a second time on it--tell it like it is.
  • I try to tell it like it is first. I try to be tactful, so I don't come off as mean, but I give honesty, because I expect the same in return.
  • When I've been holding back but am now being told not to censor myself. You asked for it, now stop holding it against me. I told you that you really didn't want to hear it all and possibly couldn't handle it.
  • I always do, there is no "nice time".
  • I have a very violent past... My up bringing was to just fly off the handle and knock people out! Now that I am older, I cultivate respect and understanding with intent... For me, not anyone else, because I dont want to be that kind of person anymore. But believe me, people do make it hard sometimes. I have always felt that people should just know better and most dont. So my personal limit... Where I have to stop myself and just get it all out and over with, are in those very fragie moments within me, where I ride the line between wanting to punch someone in their face and actually talking about things instead. When I get to that point... That is when all bets are off!
  • You can still be nice and understanding and "tell it like it is". The truth goes down a lot easier with honey instead of vinegar and you are...... attempting to accomplish something. Being direct in a helpful, understanding way, isn't being "not nice," it is just being honest. You aren't sugar coating anything or attempting to minimize or divert the facts, you just tell it like it is because you care about the person. People listen to people who care about them. I think most people appreciate the truth........the others do .....eventually.
  • After I get to know the person, I will be more open and honest. Only with family though can I be almost totally free to tell it like it is. Most of the time I just feel it would cause more problems if I told people how it is every single time it was warranted. Am I making sense? See, if I don't know the person I will not say anything specific. If someone is a friend and I feel he/she would benefit from my input, I will say what is on my mind but to a certain extent. Same with family. I wish I had it in me to just say what I think of them and no negative repercussions following. It's complicated but I feel we all censor ourselves to a point. Otherwise it would be pure mayhem.
  • When I've done everything I can to help someone or give them suggestions and it's obvious they don't want a solution, they just want to complain and whine, then I pretty much tell them exactly how it is.
  • Wait... I'm nice and understanding?
  • I tell it likes it is, however it never comes across as nasty, just plain honesty
  • i have this friend, well i did, who became so slutty, she is one of those people who knows shes pretty and uses it to sleep around a whole lot, it got so bad to she got an std over and over and i think she spread it around. finally me and my best friend confronted her, told her we thought truly it was disgusting to the point where we couldnt take her anywhere. She told us in return that it was her choice to be that way...not the answer we were hoping for but it was one of thoose times
  • unfortunately, I get there pretty quickly.
  • Never. That means they win if they can get my angry. I'd rather keep my cool and keep being nice and let them have it in the 'sweetest' way possible:-)
  • I think we can tell the truth in love. Sometimes the nicest and most understanding thing we can do is level with a person.
  • I am very empathetic to my friends. I listen to their problems and at times offer solutions. When it comes to work, I think there are things that can be fixed by just speaking up. If someone just constantly whines about the same thing, I tell them to either take the advice given (not just by me) or stop complaining. I have very little tolerance for whiners who do nothing to resolve their issue. Ugh!
  • You can be nice and tell it like it is at the same time.
  • when i'm so fed up with feeling like i'm being taken for granted! then i just let it ALL out.
  • When theres no other way to fix the situation
