When Greg is just itching for a fight and won’t let it go, call for a do-over or a re-ride. Everyone can “go to their corners” and start again. No one loses and no one wins. He gets a second chance to “be better” at working it out.
So, if Greg stomps off and doesn’t come back, at least the argument was stopped and he had the chance to see just “how” an escalating conflict can be handled in a healthy and non-competitive way.
