Reverb14 Day 6: biting back (with thanks to Brad aka Geekin Hard)

Today's prompt and image come from the genius behind Deverb, Brad aka GeekinHard. Sadly, Brad is too busy this festive season to run Deverb again but he kindly agreed to share a prompt that would enable some "healthy venting"!

Brad writes:

Despite our usually sunny dispositions and dedication to the practice of “assuming positive intent,” we all occasionally find ourselves having to deal with an incredibly unpleasant individual.

While I’m sure you always handle it with the tact and finesse for which you’ve become so well known, I’m going to ask you to step outside yourself for just a moment.

Think back to such a situation: if the gloves were off, how you really would have liked to have dealt with them?

Thank you, Brad! (I was relieved to learn that the lizard escaped eventually!)
