How often do people talk shit to you?
 
This morning I was driving my wife somewhere.... Okay it was a university but as I was driving away a group of maybe 4 ass holes yelled shit at me as I was driving by. I was driving a 2005 mitsubishi lancer evolution with a carbon fibre hood and a few upgrades (but its not loud at all, so no loud ricering, even though it has a ton of power). I e-braked, stepped out of the car and started calling people bitches. I know, really mature, I know. And I almost kicked the shit out of some ass holes. It was over nothing, and trust me I could have easily ,it was obvious they weren't formally trained.

So my question is how often do you walk away from fights? What is the baseline for fighting someone? How badly did I handle the situation? What would you have done differently in such a situation?

This is also a previous fight experience thread. Including times when you got into fights etc.

Every now and then a guy will say something to me or my brother or my friend, and I always show I'm willing to fight, which makes others just back down.

Everybody wants to fight until someone wants to fight them, the way of the world.

Oh man, im super protective of my brother. I know he's a full grown man and can take care of himself but... Anyways :D

Maybe you are right, but I almost never yell shit at other dudes. I don't really talk a great game, but im amazing at defensive game.

When people talk shit to me, I just smile and pull a Sonnen with a very calm attitude, while the other guy is obviously offended, and is screaming his guts out.
I've never been in a fight and if it's a 'no big deal' argument, I try to avoid fighting, but if it's necessary, sure, bring it on.

Definitely the best way to handle things. Unfortunately I have the "small man" complex. And I happen to be great at fighting. Often I wish I could just let such situations go. You sir are the better man. And I respect that. :thumbsup:

I am very quick to fight. I never think if the other guy can take me or what ever. Ive been in to many fights to count when all I had to do is walk away but I didnt. I have been sucker puched to many times to not swing first. Also when I swing and they dodge it I know they are worth fighting!!! Plus I dont mind getting punched in the face so I guess thats another reason I fast to throw hands

I'm afraid we are two birds of a feather. ;)

I am the violent one. The guy to dodge that punch, the one always on his guard and almost certainly the one who lands first in a fight. I've been in over 20 street fights, im not proud of that but I do handle myself nicely. I think its a partially instinctive thing, its just here. Its the same meanness I saw in my dad. Although he was a violent son of a bitch, its primal and I have a hard time battling it.

Well, maybe you just enjoy fighting, and heck, if it doesn't go as far as smashing someones head in to concrete, but just a good old-school fist swinging, why not? :D

I'd never kill someone in a fight unless I had to. In fact if someone just said "no no stop stop" or anything like that I would. But its kind of ridiculous, I'm a kickboxer and im working on my masters degree. I've tested at a 121IQ at the university yet I love fighting. For sport is one thing but for pride is another, and thats the main reason why I've foolishly fought.

That we are my friend. The last fight I was in the guy ran up on me yelling and I tore into him. Im an angry guy but I never lose my head or "black out" like some people. If you run up on me Im swinging. As it turned out the guy was looking for somebody else and mistook me for him...it was dark .... But oh well :thumb02:
