Alright, so this guy is walking down my block. I spot him from my house. I see that he's wearing a red sweatshirt.
Now, I take this offensively, as red is my least favorite color, so I rush outside to stop this jackass. I say to him, "Listen, buddy, you better cut it out." I pushed him a little to let him know I wasn't kidding.
He then said, "Excuse me?". Now, at this point, I'm becoming enraged. I did what my gut told me so I punched the guy square in the mouth. He went to get back up, his face steaming, but I kicked him in the stomache out of self-defense.
Now the ground around him is the same color as his stupid shirt.
Question: How might I have upped the anty with this situation? I felt as though I didn't defend my pride enough.
