“Middle o’ my Ass!”

Beware of those who offer “compromise” or “let’s find a solution somewhere in the middle.”

If I insist you give me two million dollars and you tell me to go to hell, then “finding a solution in the middle” still gets me a million bucks for the low-low price of an afternoon pushing a cart around Wal-Mart.

There are many ways to solve problems. Artificially deciding “splitsies” is one that is best eyed with a seriously hairy eyeball.
