Sounds like the problem is that you associate with soft, gutless men who are too frail to back down an overly disrespectful drunkard. I wouldn’t stand for the shit in most of your examples for a second. I wouldn’t expect a woman to respect me if I did stand for it. Brain him with his padlock or call the cops if you’re not up to physical violence. In the case of the first guy, the “thin tree in the wind” fellow, why linger for ten minutes? Leave him to his miserable existence.
