As I get deeper into my meditation practice, an interesting side effect I've noticed is my relationship to my emotions, specifically anger. It's much harder to get angrier with people when you begin to train your mind. Instead, I'll have the momentary fueling up of "Hey! What the fuck was that for!" which in general subsides a few seconds later. This is almost always viewed with confusion from the other party, specifically if they assumed we were going to get into an argument. They'll sort of blink for a moment and not quite know how to react. An odd thought and one's that been said more beautifully a thousand times before but just one that I've noticed.
