Have you ever were left with the short end of the stick?What would you do if you got the short end of teh stick?Do you fight so that nobody can take you for a ride?Or you just accept it ,don't care about it. If it's no big deal,I will just accept most of the time ,cause I don't want to involved in any dispute.But if it's about principles,I would fight,I won't let anybody take advantage of me and think of me as a loser.It depends the situation.But most of the time ,I don't want to argue.

I used to just smile and take it but I have learned to stand up for myself if its important. Sometimes if its just something small i will let ig go as to not make a scene.

i don't argue with people i feel are not important to me.i also try not to argue when i am wrong and on the losing end though i give some resistance.but yes when it comes to something that teh other has done wrong i do argue and put up a decent fight.when it's about me and what i want i make sure the person on the other end knows what i'm about and what he needs to do.also when its about the things i believe in i get strong headed about it!

I simply try to accept it because you cannot have all the good things in life. Bad stuff also happens

I am always left with the short end of the stick. I get so tired of that. I am used to it though and I just make sure to fend for myself. I don't ever aqccept it but it is just the way it is. I just make sure to take care of myself and let others worry about themselves these days. I don't let people take advantage of me anymore either.

It depends upon the situation, I stand up for my rights I always have, but if the battle is not worth fighting I don't bother. It has to be worth for me, in life you just learn to pick your battles,
