Truculent

Truculent

<truk-you-lent>

aggressive; brutal; combative;

quick to argue or fight.

The truculent dog became friendly after I gave him treats.

Memory trick:
truculent reminds of truck
a truck rolls over things

At work:
He was truculent until we made the deadline. He became happy and agreeable.
