  1. Do not run.

That guy in black; I just hate being around him. He is such a moron and fake that even China is not taking credit for him. He is a morning spoiler.

We are living in a world where phones are becoming smart, and phone users are becoming idiots. Idiots everywhere. No wonder, how best you try to ignore these stinking idiots, like a ‘dogshit’ you will see them blocking your road. Not liking someone is perfectly normal. On top of this, you are not a joker to make everyone happy. You have a right to ignore people who annoys you for any reason.

You don’t need lessons on self-improvement. Maybe you don’t like someone because you have different values, ideologies, standards, and emotions. There is nothing abnormal in having disagreements. How can I throw a smile to someone, whom I don’t even count as a guest for my backyard barbecue. Well, the question here – how to ignore these idiots?

Treat Them Like A Total Stranger

Not an easy thing to do, but treating them as a complete stranger is going to burn their back. Should you see them coming on your way or throwing a smile at you, treat them like you treat every other stranger; an emotionless look. Make them feel as uncomfortable as you can, but not by saying anything.

Whatever this person does to attract your attention, should be no longer your business. Stop thinking about that person because the more you think about him, the most unpleasant encounters you will have. Trust me, nothing can annoy you, but yourself. Stop entertaining them with your nervousness. Do you often waste your time on every stranger you met on the road? I hardly doubt.

Stop Looking or Staring

You don’t like someone, stop paying attention. The best thing you can do to express your rejection is – undervaluing the importance of the concerned. Try not to notice them. Imagine they are not there.

I have seen people complaining about dirty looks. You cannot stop others from scanning you. But, you can always save your energy by not noticing them until they approach you with their filthy intentions.

Stop Discussing Them

Stop making them a topic of your discussion; do not discuss them with anyone. The only aim of these troublemakers – fetching our attention; directly or indirectly. And, who knows the person you are sharing your thoughts about, is the person who likes them. Again, if you really don’t like them, why even talk about them.

Keep Your Head High

Do not show them that you are afraid. Look in their eyes and don’t let them feel that they have affected you a bit. Because this is what they want. They want you to run from them and they want to make you feel uncomfortable. But, you need to face them as boldly as you can. You need to deliver them a message – ‘who are you.’

Use Buffers

In case, avoiding them is hard, you can always use buffers; take a friend of yours with you. That friend can buffer your encounter with the person you don’t want to be around. This one buffer can ensure that things between you and that nuisance-maker remain at civil levels only. Should anything get serious, he can neutral the subject. Before taking that buffer, make sure they are clear about your expectations.

Don’t Run

If you see them not sparing your ways and always trying to drag you into a useless conversation; don’t ignore people, but learn to confront them diplomatically You need to learn the art of interacting as if you don’t care. No wonder, you are going to see these rotten stinky eggs everywhere and running is not a permanent solution. The best part is – “show me what you got?”

Scare Them

Try to work on your body language. Stand affirm and fold your arms. You should not give the impression like you are trying things. Give them the coldest stare, if you can. Should they make fun of you, do not respond.

It is all about not showing any irritation or hesitation. In that case, leave the scene and do not look back. Move forward like nothing has happened. This is surely going to confuse them and next time, they will think twice before they try to cut you off. No one is interested in public humiliation.

It is not very hard to deal with queen-bees kind of people because the worst they can do to you is – spreading news and rumors about you. Let them live in their world of fantasy because you really don’t need to prove yourself. These abnormal, insecure, and emotionally challenged people are always in hunt of easy preys and free publicity; don’t buy one for them.

Don’t bother about them like you don’t give a shit to the trash bins waiting outside for garbage disposal truck.
