Someone is doing something that annoys you. You know if you confront them, they will be over dramatic with the situation which could make things worse. Do you still confront them, or ignore the situation and hope it passes?

GET OFF THE PHONE!! in movie theaters

Many times, if you wanna throw down we can do that. Hasn't happened yet but whatever. It's disrespectful and I won't tolerate that.

If I have an option to avoid them, I will take it. If I'm boxed in, I'll have to confront them... They'd better hope I've been taking my meds.

I've never been afraid of confrontation, so let's go with saying what's on my mind.

It depends on who they are, how often you see them, etc. My friend/neighbor has really been getting on my nerves lately. Each individual thing wouldn't be much. But she's been doing a lot of things that just keep piling up. So, I'll go a few days or a week in between very short visits.

I generally ignore it but I've had enough of this around fur the last few years that I've taken ignore to a new level. I can now simply pretend the person isn't even there and ignore them completely. I didn't think I was that passive aggressive, but I am about as angry as I can get so making sure they know I'm not acknowledging their very existence somehow makes me feel just a bit better because I know that they are more uncomfortable than I am and that is new in this household.

Sorry about the rant. I guess you asked the right question on the wrong day or vice versa. 😁

If it annoys me, I need to get over it. If it's annoying everyone around then I would say something.

Husband most likely. As he loves to annoy. Others no.

If it's a boundary issue, and I'm in a long term relationship, I will say something. Just an annoying habit? I will keep my mouth shut.

Not long term enough to bother, if I saw no benefit. I'd just beat him up. 😜

If I can avoid them, then I avoid them. If not, I get them to cease the behavior in question.

Well you'll most likely just have to bear that one. A roommate isn't someone you want to piss off when he's alone with all your stuff.

After I was read all the famous people ever to come from Maryland, the constitution of Maryland, every Hymn the Free Masons use, the entire political set up of DeMolay and then the history of Garret County. I was then told how to get from my home, to his. Via train or plane or car. Then when he concluded it wasn't feesible, he proceeded to contact his brother as to wether or not he could fly to my house to pick me up.

Never even going to see this kid again after this semester, let alone skip work go visit him is no-where Western Maryland.

This whole thing totaled 4 hours, in which I was actually listening to Spotify, reading Vergil in Latin and setting up my fantasy baseball team.

I usually ignore it cuz I'm not easily annoyed, but if it's really bothering me I'd totally bring it up! Better to correct the situation than continue to live in annoyance at their hands.

Your roommate just wants you to visit him and be aware of state historical knowledge? I don't get it.

He read Wikipedia for hours, then when the through the all his music, critiquing it like he actually was a composer, then started asking me about "Dupree" which was the mispronunciation of a city near me looking about train schedules and the local airport. He apparently memorized my address and thought I'm going to live with him for the summer. I at no point said this. If someone just randomly started planning to send a member of their family to pick you up at your door to live with them, I feel like you (as any normal human) would be uncomfortable. And this is one night added on top of 7 months of stuff. Even my third roommate go extremely uncomfortable with it.

Oh that's weird. I know that type of person though lol...just be friendly but for sure tell him you're not living with him for the summer...that's just weird to assume when you never agreed to it

I do. He acts like princess, needing to be pampered and treated as the center of attention. You try to confront him about anything and he throws his hands in the air and walks out. Leaving the problem on hand for me and my other roommates to solve.

He is the definition of establishment republican. 100% John Kasich and said I have no business supporting Ted Cruz. I have told him time and time again to his work, especially for the group projects last semester and he did…Nothing!
