Yeah I think we've all daydreamed of punching that smug son of a bitch right in the face, it's a rather pleasant thing to think about. But to actually do it is another thing.
Ive never wanted violence, and have done what I had to to avoid it at times.
In high school there were a couple instances where somebody would try to entice me into a fight. Both times though it just came down to him getting all up in my face acting tough (what else is he going to do with an empty head and all that testosterone), but with my 'dont fuck with me' ISTP stare and not flinchin a bit, and actually calmly inviting him to go ahead and take the first swing, they backed down.
People can talk all the shit they want, itll bounce right off me as I just ignore them and get on with what I was doing, they seem to hate that the most. They want to call me a coward, that is fine by me because all they're doing is showing how they have an undeveloped brain and are still in caveman mode.
It's not until they start trying to physically intimidating or are going after somebody else that it will start to really get to me and I will step up.
I dont like violence, and never understood how so many people would have that as their first reaction towards anything that offends them. But I am in no way a pacifist and as soon as anybody would have thrown that first swing, it would have been lights out and I would have just flipped a switch and gone ballistic, and he would have had an unexpected ball of energy all over his ass (yeah, I would have pulled his pants down and raped him right there in front of everybody), and I dont doubt that if I was capable (being that I have never actually gotten into a fight I am not fully aware of my physical capabilities in this aspect, lol) I would have gone for breaking an arm or some serious measure to end the fight as quickly as possible and to teach the fuck not to mess with people who do not want conflict.
