It's basically a "Get-out-of-Jail" catch-prhase for being a douche, but not wanting to be called out for being one.
Those words are supposed to completely absolve someone of any and all wrong-doing...and I call BULLSHIT!
I'm not saying the that world should be fair and peaches and sunshine, but bad behavior should not be ignored because people say that is the way the world is.
Instead of acting on your worst behavior, why not step up and act with honor and integrity? And if you do, maybe the next person will, and the next and the next?
Who knows, maybe life will no longer be considered a game... and we'll all be winners.
Okay... kniption finished.
