Big Man - in that wonderful Scottish sense.
I am not bald, though I usually keep my hair cut short, you definitely
win on that one ;-)
My favourite was when I was doing security work at Edinburgh
University Union, the number of people that would come up to me with
the "You think you're hard because you are big attitude" never ceased
to amaze me. I usually set one of my short, ginger haired female
colleagues on them. That showed them.
I was taking a shot of head doorman for a few hours, when my ex GF was
getting hassled by a short irritating girl with a big mouth. I
wandered over, explained that she would not be coming in tonight, and
that she should go away and stop wasting the oxygen around me.
She made a few comments which royally irritated my ex. (About possible
previous GFs, I hasten to add.) She then called me Fat.
"I may be fat, but you're ugly. I can always lose weight!"
I was actually called in to the Union manager's office about that. Oh
how the Manager laughed.
Then to the Bar, and to my lighting rig :-)
