    Agree with you JanaeV2.0 - just point me to the library lol! Oh, I was also shockingly saintly.

    English actress Michelle Dockery in the movie Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, based upon his book of the same name.

    Mine was infrequently vile, which seems to be fairly common, at least among people on this thread. But as catherine pointed out the test didn't ask about passive aggressiveness. I suspect my score would've been more vile if it had. Like others here I"m not motivated by "important people" or the trappings of the rich or famous. But I absolutely have opinions on right or wrong and on what I think should happen to people I think have behaved poorly or inappropriately towards me or others and I'm not afraid to act on those opinions. For example, a few years ago I was walking on a very crowded sidewalk and a woman who was obviously in a hurry was cutting around people right and left and generally being a nuisance. When she cut me off I (mostly) accidentally stepped on the heel of her sneaker giving her a flat tire* (her heel came out of it when she lifted her foot.) I couldn't hide the smirk on my face at the well deserved inconvenience this was to her.

    *do elementary school kids still call it a flat tire when they do this to someone?

    Oh Michelle Dockery, of course! She is far away from
    Downton Abbey.

    I know Pratchett is cool, just havent read any of them! Maybe one day.

    Lady Mary, Downton Abbey!!

    Gee, Alan, 41 books from the same series?? I'm impressed. I read a dozen or so Nancy Drew books, but that's the most I ever read in one series.

    I see no point to “An eye for an eye” justice carried out by me. I do, however, remove myself from those who do me harm for just about forever. My saving grace (Saintliness!!!?? Hahah!) is that I usually just dont notice if someone does me harm, they have to be pretty much in my face to notice. Cant think of the last time somene did harm to me deliberately.

    The woman cutting around people on the sidewalk was not deliberately hurting you, she was extremely self centered and unnoticing and uncaring of her actions.

    Well, the number would have been higher if the author hadn't died.
