I'm sure some of you have idiot friends who like to christen your new shoes with a nice shoe mark.

I thank them with a gentle tap in their gut with my fist and a nice appreciative "fuck off".

How do you handle yours?

Reward them by encouraging them to go bespoke with Jacob Kozinn.

I would find new friends.
Or, do as erk suggests.

How old are they?
12?

Funny this should come up. I've never told this story to relative strangers before but:

My parents were well dressed people and raised me to be similar. As a small child, as we all should be, I was instructed to properly care for my clothing when out and about.

Well, at about 5-6 years of age, I was standing in line for something at school when the boy behind me purposely stepped on my new shoes.

I informed him that they were new shoes and to please not step on them as I would get in trouble with my parents if they were mistreated.

Of course, since dolts are born to do what they feel they must, he stepped on them again.

I then informed him that if he did it one more time, I would punch him in the nose.

He did. I did. There was some blood and a brief official kerfuffle due to the times being in the 'peace movement' days but my shoes were never again molested.

I retain this very effective method for dealing with people even today. I've found it's the only thing, deep down, that most people understand. I feel a gentleman needs one notice, at the most two, in order to behave properly. After that, I'll correct his behaviour as I see fit.

Dearest OP, you need new friends or you need to correct their behaviour for them.

What is this "gentle" of which you speak? You're doing it wrong.

...and their mom but only if she's hot.

Also, I've found tasers and cattle prods beneficial...
