When people treat you like shit. You ought to fight your corner for the morale of your spirit. Stand your own ground and I promise you, it will be better if you do not go down quietly into the night without a single bruise on your face.
So what if the odd is against you.
The way I see it, you only have 2 choices. Either you smile at it and wait until you got beaten up to a pulp, or you could fuck back and say "Thank you Ma'am I'll be on my way now".
"Grow some balls will ya."
