When the neighborhood bully, a guy who has vandalized your house in the recent past, a guy you could whip with one hand in 2 seconds if it was not for an abundance of restraint and respect for peace, walks up to you says with a nasty scowl, ” I’m going to attack your family real soon and I’m going to mess em up cause I hate you!” You respond by saying (and please choose the most appropriate reply)
- I know you’re not serious. But, hey, is there anything I could do for you, you know, something to improve our relationship so you will stop scaring my family and leave us alone? You might even go so far as to ask him if he would like a gift for the sake of friendship, perhaps a new car? You would be happy to buy him a new car, if that would help you two get along?
2. You don’t offer anything. You tell the little S.O.B. you’re about to rip his fricken head off if he so much as sneezes in the direction of your family. Then you stand there, looking him eye ball to eye ball…and say slowly and firmly, “Well punk, are you going to make my day?”
I don’t know about you, but my choice is solidly 2. I feel when you are up against a person like Kim Jong-Un who takes no end of childish delight in threatening the world’s greatest super, sometimes you need to let him know you mean business. We should take his threats seriously and we will not let him put a gun to our head. That’s what Trump did and I applaud him for it. It’s about time.
