    Possibly a better question would be. Why has this not happen to me since 6th grade? I mean i've been training really hard I've been patient and 20+ years later nothing. This is bullshit.

    Well, so far it looks like Bullies are oh so witty and creative in their responses, but with a couple of exceptions, less so when trying to de-escalate. I always thought non-violent conflict resolution was a valuable side skill for the MArtist. Kind of like learning how to bounce somebody to make their nuts pop back out of their abdomen after a hard kick.

    Maybe I've just spent too much time in Aikido class.

    Normally, the guy starting **** is so put off by a goofy mfer like me blowing kisses, it de-escalates pretty quickly.

    Look up and to the left, and absentmindedly ask "did I leave the oven on?"

    Not sure what you mean: where I work, for instance, once the combative douche is out the venue door, things in the workplace are totally de-escalated.

    I always thought non-violent conflict resolution was a valuable side skill for the MArtist.
    Absolutely. The aforementioned douche may be fighting and struggling, but the doorman is nicely hugging him and gently carrying him to a place that better suits him. Better locale for douche, peace maintained on the premises--all is resolved with a minimum of fuss.

    The best de-escalation is living in a place where people don't say "What the **** are you looking at?"

    Pick one...



    Though it probably would help if you actually were Bas Rutten. I, however, am not... So I de-escalate by buying the fellow a nice bottle of Desperados and lime... Then wrapping it gracely around the back of his head...
