Telling You Twice

"Don't make me tell you twice" ~griftdrift's mother

A non-political topic, but then again maybe if it were applied to politics the deal would be less loathsome.

If a person tells you once you are being rude, it is perfectly acceptable to pass it off as differing sensibilities. If they tell you twice, I would expect you to begin questioning your actions. If they tell you repeatedly for weeks on end, either you are dealing with a maniac or your lack of adjustment in your behavior has moved you into the arena of the asshats.

I will tell you from experience that 99% of human beings are not maniacs. A good clue a person is not a maniac is if eventually they just walk away. Leaving you with your pride of "showing them", when really all you showed is you are more comfortable in the company of the asshats.

This is rather, deliberately, obtuse.

I will brook no fools today. So no political coverage or anything else.

Yup.

Reminds me of that other line about, if one person tells you you've got a tail, you can ignore them. If twenty people tell you you've got a tail, maybe you should look behind you.

Or something like that. It sounds much cooler when said the right way, I'm sure.
