20. “Fight With Your Brain, Not Your Fists”
“Started dating a girl a few months back and her ex was being just a huge jerk to her, threatening to fight me if he saw me, trying to start rumors, etc…
Went out for drinks with the girlfriend and, of course, he shows up. Starts to get in my face at the bar and gets kicked out. Rushes the door guy to get back in and is carried out and banned from that bar for life.
Then I had another genius thought… What if I could do this at the bar next door? (It’s a small-ish town. There are really only two bars worth going to for nightlife, and they’re right next door to each other.)
So, we go next door. He’s waiting outside for me but there are the usual ‘don’t do it bro!’ friends around him so I make it next door without having to fight. Of course, he comes in, starts his act and actually tries to fight me this time. He gets pulled off by a few people and is also kicked out of that bar for at least a while.
Fight with your brain, not your fists.”
