The problem with people acting like an arsehole around me is that they get really upset when they find out I am a bigger arsehole than they could ever be.
You merely affect being an arsehole. It comes naturally to me and I practice, deliberate practice of course, every day.
You tinkle the ivories whilst I close out Carnegie Hall on a daily basis.
P.S. “Hell of a nice guy” in my Fido.net email signature block is a truism so long as you don’t push the wrong button.
