This is so true. Silence is most of the time better than words in an argument. However, there are times when you have to argue back. Not to brag, but I have a genius sense of knowing which arguments to say something and fire back and then which arguments to not care about. There has to be a distinction between fireback arguments and ignorable arguments. Fireback arguments are those which you better say something back or the person will punk you. An example of a fireback argument is if your boss tells you you're not doing your job when you actually are. Don't let your boss punk you! Stand up for yourself and tell your boss that you're doing your job well. Fireback arguments exist also with your friend or your spouse. Ignorable arguments are those which you can just ignore. Say like if your girlfriend tells you to answer her phone when she's in the shower. However, you don't feel like it because it's one of her annoying friends that you just can't stand. Don't argue. Let her vent. Then when the phone rings next time, don't answer it! You're not a recording. Anyway, silence is best in an argument. However, make sure you determine whether that argument is a fireback argument or an ignorable argument.
