  • How do you deal with jerks in real life?

    Usually I avoid them. But what if they are family or a client or someone you can't avoid?

    avoid when possible, and just be civil when not possible to avoid. I have a brother that's an as.. well anyway, my sister and I wouldn't walk across the street to pee on him if he was on fire. If he's at a family get together, we're civil, but we never initiate conversation, never phone him, and just avoid him when possible.

      I agree with Nu, avoid if all possible. Be civil if you have to be around him / her.

        avoid them with possible and when I "have" to be around them...act as if nothing is wrong. Not many people can tell when I dislike someone. I don't let anyone dictate how I act.

          Avoid as much as you can, but if it gets to the point where you are losing it, excuse yourself for being uncomfortable. Tell them it's your problem, and you just need to back away.

            I divorced him.. But in your case, just ignore them as much as possible.

                I talk to myself and thank God I don't have to go home with it or sleep with it.

                  I also try to ignore, but if I must be around them, I just grin and bear it and be as civil as possible. No Jerk is worth me stooping down to their level... Besides, sh*tty sweet usually irritates more than obvious disgust..

                      Yes, they are always around us no matter how much we try to ingore them. The family ones are the worse. Like a bad penny they keep popping up. We all have them.

                        It's unfortunate that we all have "jerks" in our life! I agree with others... I avoid and just ignore them

                          this is what I generally do the only ones I avoid are the ones I like the SO of or I like the kids of. Plus those who's kids go to the school I work at.
