Circus Elephant

 
Big
Scary
Potentially dangerous
But harmless
Entertaining and thrilling
Cuz there ain't nothing to really fear

Few things are more emotionally painful, stressful, and draining to a man than having to acquiesce to disrespect or attitude from someone who is not smarter, or more capable, than he is and/or also cannot whip his ass.

I'm sure you've all heard that "Stress is the mind overriding the body's desire to choke the Shit out of some FukkHedd who desperately needs it!!"

The most frequent reason for tolerating this shit is that the "ShitGiver" controls or greatly affects the man's source of income. And this income provides necessities for himself, his children, and his woman. And the man is all too aware that he cannot match what he will lose if he yields to his urge to make the "ShitGiver" fully, and painfully aware that his position of "authority" has caused him to badly overstep the bounds of proper man-to-man behavior.

Some folks are blissfully unaware that certain actions have both a "pain" and a "bloodshed" penalty in the real world.

Basically, it sucks having to choose between responding like a man; and keeping a job
