Clearly the chip was an inadequate offering, or perhaps from an inferior establishment??

I once did utter something totally true but unnecessary, a dude bullied me for no reason blaming me that I cursed him . I told him very politely that I did not. Then I reminded him again that I really did not, this time a little harsher but still in control.
The situation seemed to be sorta de-escalated and all of a sudden I said loud clear "I did not, you son of a bitch"..
Then all broke loose and the ensuing fight was really severe and bloody, My t-shirt was totally torn etc. It all ended up in a police station. Thank God there was no file against me.
I taught the dude a small lesson though, but still it was costly and unnecessary.

there is a bar next to my job, and we share the parking lot. This can be a bad thing sometimes. A guy was throwing up in the parking lot, and my fellow employee mocks him. Three of his buddies come out, and the posturing begins. Four of them, and three of us. Words are being exchanged, but I'm kind of standing there bored (seen it a million times).
As I'm playing with a thread hanging from my shirt, I think maybe I should be saying something tough-guy-like. Like Dirty Harry maybe. Then one of their guys looks at me and says "Hey, don't I know you?" So I give him the crazy-eye, and say in a gravely voice, " I don't know anybody!"
Not only does that not really make any sense, but it came out like "I no-no anymarnee!". Everyone looks at me like, "what the **** was that!"as I look like a crackhead with my eyes all wide open. With everyone momentarily united in confusion, it somehow diffused the situation.

You failed almost as much as i would have in that situation.
"Don't i know you?"
"Tommy? From 3rd grade? Bro, i'm sorry about your birthday party, ok? I tried to make it, but my mom wouldn't let me"
