Pinned toot

Most of the times it is realized only after the fact, that it is never worth your while to try going the extra mile to patch things with anyone. They'll slack off just as much. Best to let their grip slip off.

This made my laugh more than it probably should have.

On similar lines, whenever I'm facing a similar situation where I need to take a stand, I hate the way I hyperventilate. Really messes me up and I curse the entities who cause it.

Looks like #Mycroft called their bluff, and they folded. Hopefully this troll will keep its tail tucked and we'll never hear from them again.

you ever declined the request of a cold caller to sign you up for a credit card so nicely/humanely that they were appreciative and grateful for it in the politest way?
