Someone makes a comment that really grinds your gears....WWYD?
I either quietly seethe or call them out, depending on my mood.
Depends on the comment.
Is this about your encounter with think? He’s an asshole. Just ignore him. He and I have gotten into it more time than I can count. None of them were worth it. He’s a condescending piss poor excuse of a human.
Lmaooooo okay glad I’m not the only one who thinks so
The "tell them off" approach doesn't do anything except satisfy some urge (juvenile, in my opinion) to be mean to someone you think has been mean to you, unkind, rude, and/or or minimally just not very understanding of you. I don't think that reaction has ever improved anything.
If trying to further understanding doesn't seem possible, I think it's better to just walk away before saying something I'll regret later, because I *will* feel like an ass or a jerk if I just react in kind.
I try to keep in mind a principle of the Dali Lama XIV, which I shorten to "Be kind. Always."
Makes a lot of sense frfr! I’ll try to remember that next time lol
