Yes… I honestly made that argument. I mean, can you say what you said, yes… does the guy have just reason to assume you are going to kill him, maybe or maybe not…are you likely to kill him, maybe or maybe not…. does he deserve it? Maybe or maybe not…

But the point is, if someone is worried that you are going to kill them… and that is your response then you’re being an asshole… like you’ve added nothing to the situation. The answer is “OK….” two syllables…. you’ve gone out of your way to be mean to the guy.

And yes… if you walk into a store and someone says “please don’t steal that DVD player” the right answer is “Ok” or maybe to turn around and leave because you are offended. Hell, maybe even you tell them off and say “What makes you think I’m going to kill you, asshole.” That’s actually better than “I am no more likely to steal the DVD player than the TV” or even “I am no more likely to steal from your store than the store next door.” Like in your DEFENSE you are literally arguing something worse than the standard.
