Do YOU feel the need to have the last word ?
im not very good at bickering though, i usually resort to the low as a snake tactic of just making stuff up ab6vt the other person
There's no such thing as pointless bickering. It's a fun and creative way to pass time. And you're not a real man unless you have the last word. That way in real life, where getting the last word is an impossibility, you'll find it much easier to bear.
voicing your 'last word' and tampering with your opponent's ability to respond is cheating and is unmanly
So the ol' "Shut up, dick!"/Punch to the neck gambit is a no-no, then?
another example would be to run away from a less athletic arguee and time the last word to their point of giving up chase. Although complications would occur if you were overtaken... that's a morally grey area.
