    I'm probably one of the youngest active members on this site, so, older, wiser generations: please share with me some advice...

    How the fuck do you deal with assholes? You know the ones Im talking about too. I'm sure you've encountered more then one on your journey thus far. They take what you say, turn it upside down, and begin to display the behavior of a bully in the school yard, a thug in an alley, and a monkey in the jungle ALL AT THE SAME TIME. O_O

    Where's the maturity? Where's the concern for presenting yourself well in front of others? How do they go from 0-60 in the snap of a finger? These sorts of people baffle me. Is it in the way they were raised? Isn't blaming your childhood for lashing out at people an excuse?

    Aye yai yai...

    And where are you meeting these guys? I'd expect nothing less from lounge lizards, but if you're meeting these guys in work settings or some place "culturally based" (orchestra concert, museum, college classes even) I don't know what to tell you. Guys at parties, in bars, etc are there just to get laid and that is their only focus. Avoid those places or learn to ignore them. My daughter can usually shred them verbally and if that still doesn't work, having played hockey for 10 yrs, she punches them in the face.... and no, she doesn't fight like a girl.

    People are asshole generally speaking. There are all types. No one way to deal as far as I am concerned. Some need to be ignored others need you to give them the middle finger and walk away shaking your tail feathers. Others need to be told what's up...and there are some that just need a slap upside the head.

    Here's another vote for walk away. There are no reasons to associate with negative people, particularly ones who are intentionally so.
    To quote Tim the Enchanter, from Monty Python, 'RUN AWAY...RUN AWAY'

    My advice is similar, walk away with pride and leave them to their insular little selves.
    Nothing is as effective against such folks as not being acknowledged!
