    Re: Problem people

    Unfortunately, I have a very quick temper and say things that I don't mean because I misspoke. I can't deal with rude people and tell them off...

    What do you do with hangers on?
    People who really don't give a toss about how you really are.
    They just want something for themselves.
    People who were of no significance in your life, then suddenly your life becomes, "Us, We, etc".
    I hate it, advice please?
    Ignoring has not worked.

    Re: Problem people

    When that happens to me, I'm very polite, nice and kind to them. If that still doesn't work, if I'm at a party, I leave after a couple of minutes if they continue bothering me or harassing me. If it's a work situation, and I can't avoid them ( such as a boss, assistant boss, manager, close colleagues, etc.), then I'm super nice to them and pretend that everything's okay but if the harassment continues for a long period of time ( I'm very patient and for me that would be a year), then I just quit my job and find a new one.

    if you can't avoid them, be the bigger person, and say hello.

    Re: Problem people

    As hard as it is, I just try my best to either ignore or avoid them. My one friend is causing me grief right now and putting herself and her family in danger but some people are too pig-headed to be changed. If you confront them about it, it'll usually end badly. Play it safe and let them learn the hard way.

    sometimes the hard way with no help can end up extremely dangerous.

    could this be the response to your approach.
    Perhaps you've put this person on the defense?
