  • Are you avoiding taking risks? What is going on when people say this?

    • well yesterday i didn't wanna tell someone at work that they couldn't go on their break and this other girl that works with me said it to me

    • You can't always be the nice boss or else people will walk all over you. You don't have to be mean to be firm. Doesn't your place of employment have a schedule for breaks?

  • Because people think you are a coward.
    It is better just to ignore people.

    • what does that have to do with grow a pair though

    • Show All
    • so having balls makes you less of a coward haha interesting

    • No.
      That is just what the saying means.
