He is emboldened by the illusion of the protection of cyber space...
True story - MY LH used to spout stuff like this to see if he could get a rise out of me.
Being a data freak and loving the challenge of being able to say ITYS,
I kept a log for one year of the number of stupid things performed behind the wheel. I used a small glovebox sized notepad.
I made 2 columns - Men and Women.
For every eye-popping stunt, a hashmark was awarded. I kept the log entries religiously when we were together in the car. We had a lot of laughs being "on the lookout" to try to "improve" the other gender's score. Sometimes 2 marks were awarded, by mutual agreement, for compound violations.
After 1 year, can you believe the final tally of the columns was within 5 hashmarks? AND GUESS WHO LOST?
Don't believe me? Get a notebook going for just a month or two, and enjoy the laughs.
