If you rob a bank then you stiff your partners and keep all the cash, the fact that both the cops and the other robbers are upset with you doesn't mean you are in the right.
I always thought that was a stupid thing to say, but considering who usually says it, it’s not surprishing that they say it. I always thought that you were doing everything wrong!
