Consider this conversation:
I used to work til 3am then walk home in -20 or better windchills, with the wind blasting ice in your face (it's no longer fair to call it snow at that temperature, it's just tiny shards of ice) and I loved it. It makes me feel capable and alive, and better than southerners. Like maybe I could make it in the arctic.
It makes you feel better than southerners?
Yup, what do they have? Horrific insects, which is something I wouldn't tolerate, so maybe they're tough in their own way, but whatever. Let me have it.
When person A said let me have it, does it mean something like let me win this argument?
