Making empty threats can make you a target. It’s not wise to go around saying what you’re going to do to someone when you know you’re just blowing off steam. Your words may be taken as truth and bring you under attack. Now, you’re in a fight you don’t want and you’re loosing… bad. Say what you mean and mean what you say; be a man or woman of your word. If you’re going to talk like a tough guy, you better be a tough guy or a tough guy will come find you.
