    What to do with backstabbers?

    Once a backstabber, always a backstabber?

    More than likely,so always watch your back!

    Face them whenever you can, so they don't get behind you; but if they do, don't let them see you sweat.

    I would suggest that you get as far away from them as possible. I think yes to the question once a backstabber, always a backstabber.

    I think you should confront this person, and let them know you don't appreciate how they acted. Probably, they will brush you off, or deny the situation, but that's okay. Now they know you are on to them, it might make them mad, but you know their game now. So be on guard, and don't put yourself in a position where you are forced to trust them anymore. They will eventually dig their own grave, but there is no reason for you to go down with them. Stay strong and focused. If you are doing the right thing, you will prevail.

    once you know who the backstabber, you learn not to trust them and you keep them in front of you or never deal with them

    Simply leave them along.  They deserve no energy and no room in your life

    I definately think once a back stabber, always a back stabber. I tend to call them out on it...expose them for the back stabber that they are. They hate that, but in my experience it's made them stop and think twice about back stabbing me again. Doesn't mean they apply the experience to other people though.

    always remember what they did, do not let them see how it affects you and never trust them.  Like said before keep them in front of  you.   Most of all they like to see your re-action so don't give them one.

    Ever heard the saying "never kick a skunk"?  Well, it applies here.  Once you're on to a back stabber, you're in the driver's seat.  If you confront them, they'll find a way to use the confrontation against you...but if you just remain silent and wait while avoiding their behavior, you and they both will find out that what goes round comes round!

    Good advice to keep a distance and never trust them again. Ever. I truly feel backstabbers almost can't stop themselves. Even if they move on to another victim, if you're in their circle (at work, or whatever), they can try to involve you by inferring you're to blame or somehow a party to it.

    A coworker and I discovered an Office Snake was backstabbing both of us and trying to shift blame onto one or both of us. We confronted the little rat, and although she quickly backpedaled and never again tried to pull such a stunt, neither of us trusted her from that point forward.
