it's never been particularly bad for me but there have been times where it would be nice to have been quite big.

iv'e had plenty of people back down from me once they saw i wasn't gonna put up with their crap, but it would be nice if they simply decided at a glance it wasn't worth messing with me and i could avoid a confrontation entirely, know what i mean?
