Southern Word of the Week - Hissy Fit

Hissy fit: a temper tantrum. 

(n.) Nadene is gonna throw a hissy fit when she finds out you got bleach spots on her new dress
(n.) That kid laid down in the floor of the T G & Y and had a hissy fit like you've never seen! 

Kids often throw hissy fits, and often it applies to adults that become unreasonable when faced with a certain set of facts.  There is a time and a place for hissy fits, but they occur far more frequently than they should.  You can also just have a hissy, which is practically the same.
