What Do You Do When Someone Clueless Has An Opinion About What You Are, Do, or "Should" Do?
Most of us know, either before or at, reaching adulthood what all the "rules that sound good" are and what all the "rules" about having a healthy/positive attitude is. There's nothing special about knowing all those "rules to live by". People spout them off all the time and imagine themselves to be coming across as mature and responsible. When the "spouter of good-sounding" (but clueless/misguided) rules is clueless about what you are, do, have done or deal with; do you dignify their ignorance with an explanation or just let them spew?
That depends on the mood I am in. Usually I am in a fun mood and so I like to joke around, but keep a serious dead pan face while pretending to say something I think is of great import. I would start of by saying:
I remember the last thing my grandfather said to me before he kicked the bucket.
He said, "Hey James, how far do you think I can kick this bucket?
Then the other person would look at me like I had a stroke, but would eventually get I do not want to hear the nonsense.
