I think my points are valid, honest I do.
I don't like to be screwed, taken advantage of or made to look like a fool...who does?
Some people don't sweat what could be called "the small stuff"...and that's fine, to each his own.
I'll sweat enough for the lot of us.
Like at Micky D's when they put onions on my cheeseburger, when I specifically and politely ask for onion free...should I just shut up and eat it?
Daddio says yes, shut up and eat it.
That man could be served a dog turd on a bun and when the waitress came by to inquire as to its enjoyable palatability, Daddio (mouth full) would smile and mutter "fine, it was fine".

"It's okay mom" Sweet Prince Buttercup said "were used to this, you do this crap everywhere we go".
I've gotten calls recently from my darling daughter. She's been doing a lot of shopping lately and has had her "I ain't takin no shit" attitude tested. She has told many a victory tale. I am pleased as pie that she is passing this essential life skill with flying colors.
