A = B. B = C. Therefore, A = C.
I don't believe it.
Why not?
I just don't.
But why?
Because I've seen cases where A != C.
Did both A = B and B = C in those cases?
I don't know. I don't have that data.
Well, okay, but in cases where A = B and B = C, then A = C.
I don't believe it.

Since frustration is an emotion you might be forgetting other emotions... and when emotions are involved, equations are always unstable.

You could have a situation that was emotionally charged enough that A!=C, even though A=B and B=C.

There's simply too many variables when people are involved.

(Yes, I'm assuming that there are people involved... it was a conversation - right? Not just a Dramatic Monologue?)
