I'm not secure in my armchair. Would a wadded up t-shirt under one of the legs help, or is it all psychological?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

I would add my personal dopey guy story to Fasters. Was standing at the fuel dock in Liberty Landing NJ, talking with the woman captain of the NY Waterway ferry operation. "Large" guy at the helm of a 45' or so ketch pulls parallel to the fuel dock about 15' away and tells the very petite woman midships to "throw it now." Dockline goes into the water. Guy uses the f word to the crew, goes around again still 15 feet away, tells her "throw the **ing line and get it **ing there." Line in the water again, exact same language. Comes in for a third shot and just before he issues his command about throwing the **ing line, the NY Waterway captain yells to him "maybe if you'd get the **ing boat alongside the dock, she could hand the **ing line to us." The fuel guy and I had to hide in the hut to keep from choking.

Insecure or not I'd be ok with taking orders from that shirt.

When you are secure in your abilities all that maters is that you know what you can and can not do. There is no need to broadcast it to the world when you believe it yourself. How's that for some armchair psychology?

Or, Freud, that one knuckle-dragger who has a problem taking orders from a chick might announce their presence upon reading the "offending" teeshirt by declaring their contempt (via verbally saying as much, attempted mutiny or throwing a hissy-fit) which would allow said chick to kick them off the boat prior to leaving the dock.

Winning!
