Meany, Meany

So, once again I've been called a meany. This time it comes from a VERY reliable source so I have to take it seriously. I just want to state for the record that I'm not a meany. It may come off that way from time to time, but this is simply self preservation tactics kicking in. For much of my life I was taken advantage of or walked on. The last 5 or 10 years I have really gone outta my way to make sure that nobody got that advantage on me to step on me or hurt me. Sometimes these tactics come off as being a meany. I assure you, I in no way intend on being a meany on purpose. It just comes out that way.
