Well! Your (fill in the blank -- boss, lover, friend, complete stranger) has a lot of nerve to contradict you! Just who do they think they are, anyway?
They picked the wrong day to pick an argument with you, because you're not backing down; no way. And those very sensible facts and figures they're throwing in your face to prove you wrong -- all hogwash! You fold your arms over your chest and jut your chin out, rolling your eyes at the ceiling. You're right, and that's that. Except when you're wrong! And that can be the trouble when you're stubbornly clinging to your ideas, even in the face of facts that clearly show you seriously need an update. Forewarned is forearmed, in this case, so now you know not to stick to your guns when your guns are stuck! Instead of turning off your ears, turn off your mouth. Listen, no matter how much of a struggle it is. Take down those facts and figures and check them out for yourself. There's no disgrace in not knowing something -- the disgrace lies in refusing to admit you've been wrong.
