Yes - this situation arises often in life and can be extremely  
frustrating if B is someone with great power over you (e.g. you boss,  
or an irrational Reviewer of your manuscript, or --add your favorite  
frustration here). But barring such cases of power imbalance, a glass  
of red wine is just what all of us should reach for.

So, I raise my glass to Fernardo and his red-wine theory! (actually,  
I am at work, so I will just raise my coffee mug).
