The problem with ultimatums is you got to be prepared to follow through if they call your bluff. That's why I don't issue them unless I'm like 99.9% sure they're going to do what I want. On occasion yeah, my bluff is called...I follow through and do what I threatened. Lots of times, unfortunately, it ends up being a case of cutting my nose to spite my face type thing. But you do it cuz it's the principle of the thing, ya know? Ok, yeah it is.
As for me, I don't usually deal well when one has been given to me. I usually do what I've been told not to almost like daring the other person to do what was threatened. Call me mfkn crazy. Sometimes, if you word it just right, I accept it as an ultimatum.....with the same results. Call me mfkn crazy.
I didn't care yesterday, and I'm not going to care today.
