Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: How do you deal with someone you don't like?
Avoid, ignore and don't engage whatsoever. I know I say this from time to time, but there are some people you just can't like.

  1. I handle them the same way you do. As a matter of fact there is a girl at work right now that I don't like and I totally ignore her and she ignores me. Works out fine

    1. I had a few at work that drove me over the edge too. As little as contact as possible. :)

  2. I try to minimize my interaction with the person without being immature about it.

    1. That's a great policy. :)

  3. Generally, I ignore people I don't like, but if I have to deal with them I go out of my way to be nice. It's just easier that way.

    1. This is what I do too. And I cross my fingers the encounter will be brief. ;)

    2. I never go out of my way being nice to people I don't like. Cool would be my approach. You're a far nicer person than me. :)

  4. Treat them civil and if they're a real problem, pray for them.

    1. Praying for them is a good thing. :)

  5. Keep away from them. If they happen to be your near and dear, try to correct them or correct myself after discussion/interaction.
    Have a great day!

  6. Be nice, my mother taught me that if I cant say something nice, I should not say anything at all. So I would be nice, I agree with Rhonda, its easier!

    1. See, that's why I don't say anything at all. :)

  7. I try to be nice and just don't go out of my way for people that I am not particularly fond of. It is a hard thing to do but has to be done. Everyone has feelings. Take care Sandee and enjoy your Wednesday.

    1. I know everyone has feelings, but some people just rub you the wrong way and then can't understand why you avoid them. :)

  8. I try to make sure that they are no longer near me anymore. I don't need negativism in my life. I love those that show some love, thoughtfulness, positive feed back & humor to me. I grow as a person a great deal from that.
    Have a wonderful day my good friend Sandee. See ya.

    1. I've done the kiss my grits too. I usually ignore them and that's pretty powerful. :)

  10. I try to avoid them as much as possible I don't like unpleasant people I would rather not bother with someone they be nasty and unpleasant =D>

    Have a pleasantastic day Sandee LOL :-h

    1. I don''t want to bother with those folks either. :)

  11. Yep - ignore and avoid them as best I can. When I have no choice but to interact with them, I try to be polite and courteous (it's what my Mama taught me), but I also try to keep it brief ... cause I can only be nice for so long to an unpleasant person before I wanna smack 'em. :)

    1. Yes, being polite and courteous is a must, and keeping it brief is spot on. I can relate to the wanting to smack 'em. :)

  12. Kill them with kindness ! They hate it.
    and by the way- Rocksy is LOST. I have sent a search party out through the moving boxes, but at this time, she has not been found.

    1. I guess that's true too.

  14. Smile when with them, and pray when not, that you will be able to smile next time. It's the only thing i've found that gets me over the resentment of having to spend any time at all with them.

    1. I can so relate. No matter how hard you try some people you'll never like. :)

  15. I just stay away from them and if I do accidently see them I just say Hi how are you :))

    1. I don't even do that much. I ignore them, or walk away. :)

  16. Avoid. But sometimes that's not possible. Especially if the person is family or a co-worker!

    1. I hear you. Getting along can be very trying. :)

  17. It depends on where this person comes into my world sphere. If it's at work, I deal with it as professionally as I can. If I deal with person personally, I would sever all connections with them. Unfortunately, if it's someone in your family that you can't avoid, then you put your best face forward and you move on.

    Ummmm, you're not talking about me are you?

    1. No, I'm not talking about you. All the folks that I visit and that visit me are awesome. I've weeded out the ones that I didn't like. Not many, but a few. :)

  18. Most of them I ignore but there's an old boss of my husband's that I truly can't stand and it totally shows on my face. I can't help it either, I dislike him so much that everyone who sees me when I'm around him can tell.

    Hope you're having a day that you truly like! :D Scritches to Little Bit!

    1. You and I are alike on this. I cannot hide my feelings either. My body language and my expression give me away. Oh well. :)

  19. Dear Sandee, My mom always said, "the word that isn't said is sometimes the wisest"
    I think that is how I deal and of course avoid when it is possible. Blessings dear. Catherine

    1. That's why I keep my trap shut Catherine. My mom had a similar saying. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  20. I have one person that I "have" to deal with in a volunteer group. I don't engage this person on a personal level... I just approach her professionally and treat them with the same kindness I would anyone else. No use in being mean. It accomplishes nothing.

    1. I agree. I'm not mean, I just avoid. It's better than trying to hide my feelings which is impossible for me to do. :)

  21. I do what you do, and if I truly have to engage with someone I do not like, it is a tad frosty, but polite. Avoidance is bestest.

    Big hugs, honey...

  23. I'm with you Sandee- why waste any time with folks you just don't like. Life is far too short
    Have a happy day with good friends!

    1. Exactly. It's a waste of time and then some. :)

  24. Do Not Engage works most of the time, although some big gatherings of mutual family or friends means you must employ the Ignore and Avoidance cards. Or both. Of course on some ocassions you have no choice and are forced to tell them to bugger off.

    ;)

    Big hugs xoxo

    1. Yes, the bugger off works too. It's the last resort, but sometimes you have to use that card. :)

  25. My mom taught me that I can always say the time of day to any person even if I don't like them which means I can greet them with a good morning, be polite and that's it. I'm not looking for any conversation, I try not to care about the person but I also try not to let them feel I don't like them. I just stay out of their way as much as possible :)

    Thank you for your last comment on my blog a while back. Only now I finally get to visit some blogs, I've been so incredibly busy with work and school lately. I hope you're doing well! :)

  27. I do what you do..avoid :) If I can't avoid them totally (like if I have to work with them) I just do it civilly and professionally.
