I may or may not have said “suck it up buttercup” to my younger co-workers who were complaining a little. Does this mean I’m a cranky old guy who wants people off his lawn? Lord I hope not.
There is a difference between heavy metal and heavy meddle. One is music and the other is someone who gets in your business and other affairs. No one likes to be meddled with whether it be family or friends. The right to do what you like is something people take seriously. I remember the cartoon Scooby Doo where the teen detectives meddle in the business of the guy trying to scare people off. Perhaps its best not to meddle in other people’s stuff because it could come back to bite you.
