" Bring It On!"


Some people relish confrontation.
Most people however, shy away from it, as they would shy away from a smelly fart in a lift.
I tend to lean towards the latter group, however when my dander is up, I can turn into a cross between Bette Davies and a Jerry Springer guest if the mood takes me....but thankfully these times are very few and far between.
The problem with me, is that if I am crossed, I do like to be able to let the person who crossed me know just hiw much of a cow they are. It's kind of satisfying verbally bitch slapping someone even though you always run the risk of getting mega bitch slapped in return.
I'm not very good at saying nothing
But today I am trying to do just that..........
So far...so good....

And do you know what?
It's really f*cking hard!

    2. Chris again?

      Too much for a scotch egg from him to repair it like your attempt with the chicken crisps for him yesterday?

  4. I am terrified of confrontation, not so much the confronting itself but what I know will pour out of my mouth if I don't censor it, I literally feel myself swallowing the words they are so awful.

  6. You might not like confrontation John, but you are pretty good at keeping us all dangling on a line waiting to hear the full story. I for one cannot wait longer than tomorrow when hopefully your dander (whatever that is) will be down enough for you to reveal all.

  8. I have been known to reduce someone to tears verbally and I have resorted to a good right hook once or twice. Theses days I try to clamp my mouth shut and walk away.

    1. Lets hope that said person will recognize his ' foot-in-mouth' clanger and correct his actions in the future.
      Or.....set Winnie upon him and blight him with a fanny stain !

  14. I wish I as more eloquent. To say just a few words, that later on the person receiving the cut will realize what was said as their head blows up.
    Usually I will bite back the word if I am in a social setting.
    But now that I am a little very old western lady, I say what I want. Age does have a few good points.

    cheers, parsnip

  15. Trouble is, I only realise what I should have said well after the event - most likely when the other party has long since gone, or if he/she hasn't then they've moved on and (apparently) forgotten the whole thing anyway, leaving me looking a right chump if I resurrected it. But if I had managed to have said it on cue it would have been so blistering and cutting it would have left them speechless and cowering - or so I always convince myself.

  16. I'm trying to get better at confrontation. When I was younger I would get almost physically sick when I needed to confront someone. The older I get the easier it seems to be....I guess almost 40 years of holding in irritation can wear down even the most mild mannered among us!

  17. I tie myself in knots trying to be calm and not respond to numpties, But after seven years of selfish bullying behaviour from a neighbour, I lost it big time. Fishwife meets harlot meets King Kong! I howled, screamed and swore at her! and it was bloody brilliant. I could feel my tiny Welsh nan cheering me on.
    The bitch hasn't dared lift her eyes to me since.

  18. OMG, I hope it wasn't something I said. I don't get out much and live miles from nowhere, so I have become somewhat eccentric. My daughter tells me to self edit which I think about, but words fly out of my mouth sometimes before my brain kicks in. Having said that, I am terrible at the quick comeback; I have to think it over which usually means it comes to me later after the fact and I can't get no satisfaction.

  19. I bet Winnie can give a good bitch slapping, maybe she could deliver one by proxy. ;-)

  21. In the virtual world, I just let it slide as a mis-communication - In the real world, I try to limit how much emotional capital I will let something consume, but when provoked, I have been known to say things I regret.

  26. I always taught my son that it takes a bigger man to walk away and not stoop to their level. Having said that, apparently people say that I am sweet and quiet but watch out and not get on the wrong side of me!!

  27. We are meant to admire action as if keeping your mouth shut is somehow cowardly. But often not acting is the wisest and bravest choice.

  30. Bitch slapping, puh. No wonder you never get it out of your system. A length of four by two, mate, wrap it round their swede and have done with it.

    Trust me, both of you will sleep better afterwards.

    1. Was the comment removed a more violent or less violent suggestion? Just wondering if the one that remains is Hippo having toned it down a bit...

  32. "Most people however, shy away from it, as they would shy away from a smelly fart in a lift. I tend to lean towards the latter group"

    Leaning towards those people who shy away from a smelly fart in a lift sounds worth a try, although I always thought the problem with farts in lifts is there is no escape wherever you lean.

    Just saying... don't bitch slap me.

  33. You seem a very patient and thoughtful sort, so if you say they need a bitch-slapping they obviously do. I generally ask myself if I'd want someone else subjected to the same thing, and if the answer is 'no' I bitch-slap my little heart out.
    Then again, the older I get the more radical and unwilling to put up with b.s. I get. Had a few words for someone last night, in fact, so my opinion probably isn't one to run with.

  34. Let it out John, bottling stuff up is bad for your health!
    I could give your Chris a run for his money in the sarcastic/scathing remarks field, all down to years of practice!

  36. John, I hear you. I returned from corporate life because I just couldn't keep my mouth shut about the rampant stupidity that went on and I've probably got worse. Most people love me for it but a few, not so much!
    BTW, I watched Walking Dead last night just to see why you like it so much. I think I get it. Apart from the graphic details of two characters being eaten alive (they could have shot one of them and saved him the agony given it was inevitable, but then he wouldn't have got to do all that emoting) but I see how it is really all about people, not zombies. Isn't it? :)

  37. It's about shoes, scotch eggs, lack of scotch eggs, eggs without the scotched or someone has insulted the dogs.

  38. I find exhaling bad vibes towards said person helps... I gave someone a cold sore once and laughed my head off !!!

  39. I am a ducker of confrontation too. And I swallow my temper whenever possible.
    You are right though - sometimes it isn't easy.

  40. curiosity is killing me... can we turn it into another contest? And the winner gets to choose the way in which the bitch slapping will take place.

  43. John you and I are twin souls ! I am like this too. Professionally I have to go into battle . However , in my private life I do avoid conflict but will often name the elephant in the room, and I live the phrase " shoot the messenger"!. When I do go off I have been likened to a bantam rooster !

  45. last time i tried to verbally slap someone it took me weeks of thinking and then waiting for opportunity and when i finally did it the guy involved was condescending as if i was a mildly annoyed school girl. prick

  46. I have what my mother used to call an "acid tongue". I generally am a mild mannered, laugh a lot, take things with a pinch of salt type of person. But if I feel that my integrity is being questioned or I am being put down I can turn on a farthing. I can't stand bullies and I hate injustice...when it happens... and it doesn't happen that often these days I can feel myself cringe at what comes out of my mouth. It comes from nowhere, I don't plan it and I don't even think about it. Afterwards I'm like ... umm don't think I should have said that!

    BTW hope it isn't me!

  47. I, too, am a non-confrontational person, unless someone gets in my face. Then the dragon is unleashed.

  48. I hate confrontation too, but sometimes I like to throw in "that says SO much more about you than it does about me" like a hand grenade ,and then flounce off. Makes me feel better anyway :)
