The way that unintelligent women perceive assertiveness in males of small stature. When the same women see the exact same behavior in a larger man, they consider it confidence.
Manager (short man): Ma'am, I have asked you not to talk on your cell phone in the theatre. Now, I'm going to have to ask you to leave and if you do not comply, you will be escorted by security.
Ally: That manager who threw me out of the movie for talking on my cell phone totally has small man syndrome, he's like such a loser and is just jealous cuz I will never sleep with him.
Jeff: I think he knows you have herpes and he is married.
Ally: Shut up Jeff! He totally has the small man syndrome! He puffs up his chest and all that. He like totally thinks he's that pirate, Neapolitan.
Jeff: You mean Napoleon, and he was not a pirate...
Overly vocal declarations of one's physical prowess and penchant for threatened violence. This sort of child-like behavior is usually found in small-statured people who feel they need to make up for their physical inadequacy somehow.
OMG, what I wouldnt give to have 10 minutes with this son of a bitch in a dark alley. I wouldnt kill him, no sir, that's the easy way out. I WOULD MOTHERFUCKIN' BREAK HIM! I would relish all the creative ways I can think of to break every bone in his body. Id leave him just brain damaged enough for him to realize the plight he is in. The absolute hatred I harbor for this man permeates every fiber of my soul and body.
