Dude... I know we don't Always get along but... you're just gonna... ignore me? Woah... just gonna go ahead an "zap" me right out of existence?
That's... I dunno man... that's deep. I mean, I have feelings too. Did it ever occur to you that maybe I'm miserable inside and out and my
arguments with you are the closest thing I have to real, honest human interaction? I spend all damn day in this cubicle working my fingers to the bone
and do you think Mr. Donaldson gives any notice to that fact? Do you? Well I'll tell you the answer to that mystery, Sherlock! NO!! No, he does
Not!!! And as soon as I get home, the wife shoves the baby in my arms and rushes out the door with barely an explanation where she's going, let alone
a hug or a kiss or a "how was your day, honey?". And you expect ME to come here and kiss up to You? Ha.. haha! I come here every day and what do you
know, there's mister Happy go lucky ewok boy with his furry littlle face and his "polite discussion" like you've just got the perfect little life,
and so, well, of course I wanna screw it all up! How can you blame me after what you've done to me?? YOU...RUINED...MY...LIFE!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!
Actually I don't believe we've met. But the above is how I like to look at, hmm, well pretty much anyone who disagrees with me...just kidding but
just remember that some people out there are miserable, and misery loves company
you don't need an ignore button. Let this be an exercise for you to willfully ignore anyone who you do not wish to speak to. Maybe give them one
reply, ending with "i guess we will have to agree to disagree. Well, good luck to you sir or madam, i was enjoying my discussion with these other
folks and i think I'll go continue that now. Good day!"
Don't LET them ruin your day. And just remember some people are hurting inside... in fact, they say all negative emotions like anger, come from pain.
So, that pain becomes anger, bitterness, cruelty, etc, and if you are not careful in your approach, your words become firewood to feed this anger.
It's quite a useful skill to be able to quench the flame instesd. Try humor. Pretend you did not understand them correctly, and reply in a whimsical
manner that breaks the tension. Then, move on...
Good luck buddy. I surely do feel your "pain" if it's any reconciliation. But I agree with the no ignore button policy.
