Rude People Piss Me Off
Rudeness and what to do
Rudeness is Awful
Rude People Piss Me Off!!!
As we make our way through life it becomes apparent that one aspect is unavoidable. Rude people are everywhere and unrelenting. Take a left turn and there’s one. Turn right, there’s another one. They’re everywhere, up the road and down the road. What is one to do?
I consider myself to be a “nice guy” that is rarely rude. There have been many instances in my 30 years that I have had to be an a**hole. For the most part though, I prefer to treat people with dignity and respect. I am not talking about the occasional person you run into that is in a bad mood about something. That happens to everyone, most of the time these people keep to themselves. I am referring to the ones that a.) lash out at everyone they come into contact with and b.) the ones that offer unsolicited advice.
Let’s take a look at example A.
Once in a while you can expect to come into contact with the person that treats you like dirt. This person is generally upset with their life and takes it out on a happy unsuspecting nice person. Why?
In short answer to that one, I think it is because it makes them feel better than you. Of course this is completely wrong. Whenever you come into contact with this one just remember that they are having a hard time with life. Also remember that these people pretty much suck at life and take the last laugh.
To be completely fair though, I personally have been mean to a stranger because I was having a bad day. So I sucked at life at that point.
Let’s move on to example B.
I work in an industry that is presents a new challenge everyday, sometimes three or four times a day. I am a mechanic in the Army. I have been in the service for six years so I have an inclusive knowledge of my job. Plus, I have a mechanical aptitude and an ability to figure sh** out. The thing I hate is when your working on a problem and someone comes up, and starts telling you how to do your job. It doesn’t happen to me too much anymore though. My solution…
Solving this problem is easy. Look at the person with a pissed off look on your face and say, “Here you do it, since you’re such an expert!” That usually shuts them up. I find that it is easier to “sound” like an expert than to actually be one. The true expert is the one from which I seek advice.
The final thing that irks me is the person that tells you to do something that you are either already doing, or fixin’ to do. Ha, just look at them and laugh at them. That will make them feel like the complete idiot they have already proven to be.
In closing, I apologize but when you are faced with someone who is so totally wrapped up in their own greatness, it is hard to break through to them and make them realize their fallacies. You could be blunt by asking them, “How does it feel?” When they say what, you respond with, “To be a (expletive) idiot?”
This may either get you fired or punched so use it at your own risk!
