Subject: RE: BS: Dealing with 'Unreasonable' People
My dad was a lawyer. He taught me how to handle an argument. Stick to your guns. Staight your facts calmly and clearly. Do not back down. Above all, DO NOT LOSE YOUR TEMPER. You don't think clearly when you're angry.
I can't always do it, but when I can, it works.

Never argue with a drunk. It's a waste of oxygen. Treat a drunk like a very large toddler.

I used to clean for a female who threatened to fire me every time she had a bad day at work. She wasn't home when I cleaned. She didn't see what I did when she was out. What she didn't know didn't hurt her. Chortle! I only regret that I never told her that she had a snake under her back porch.
