Get the Bigger man mug.
An excuse for when they've run away from a fight or conflict instead of standing up for themselves.
Little Poof: Yeah, I was the bigger man and walked away.
Actual Man: So you ran away instead of sticking up for yourself?
Little Poof: No, I was being the bigger man.
Actual Man: So you ran away?
Little Poof: No, I was being the bigger man! *proceeds to break down in tears because he isn't a real man*
