I am curious to understand exactly how to deal with aggravation. It is the thing that can blindside in an argument because even though I may have a correct outline of represented facts it is the simple persistence in creating friction to go against what I am requesting that a person wants to demonstrate in order to show the lack of respect, usually leading to a psychological reaction and sometimes emotional. At first I didn't even know people would be inspired to do that. I wanted to react as if 'a person goes against my requests than I will treat them the same and reflect their actions back like a mirror,' as if I had no better opportunity at the moment. Then it turns into a vicious cycle where they keep on doing things that you ask them not to do, the persistent little things that add up over time. It appears that just because antagonizing someone is a possible aspect of reality there a people willing to do it.
