Very interesting origin of that word. I think it's fascinating how terms like this survive through changing times, with slightly changing meanings as time goes on.

I'm not even sure I understand what the term means. Do they think you lose your temper easily and spectacularly? No idea what they mean.

I think that if They described you to a newbe as a "loose Cannon", They considered it a compliment and you should to.

You keep them on their toes, and that's a good thing!
