Here’s the rules for firing back at “suggested changes” made by others.
It’s okay if: 1) You didn’t ask 2) You don’t know the person 3) You do know the person and they should know better
Put people in their place when needed. You of course don’t have to be too sharped tongued or invoke some kind of physical violence; but a nice, quip and memorable response is fine.
Go ahead and throw some fucks or shits in there, this way they’re sure not to forget it. Look at it this way, you’re saving them from a possible future beat down and someone else from getting put down, by speaking up. Don’t ever, ever let anyone tell you what you should change.
It’s not mean or rude to say that you don’t give a fuck what they think and that if you did, you’d ask. And until then, they should shut the fuck up. So fuck what other people say and just get on with being your bad selves.
