Manipulators

The problem with dealing with a manipulator is that they're dealing you cards from a stacked deck. It doesn't matter to you whether it's intentional or not - did they wake up that morning and stack it themselves, or was it passed on from generation to generation, already stacked - the point is, the deck is stacked in whatever favour best suits them.

The fun part is when you point out logically, clearly, and dispassionately that the deck is stacked. The manipulator will probably look deeply hurt, shuffle the deck with great ceremony and say "How about now?"
