"Oh, you're one of those..."
That they arent someone whos worth being a part of my life. Life is too short to waste time with people who only wanna bring you down!
My husband does this all the time. It could be about something he doesn't know anything about and when I make a comment about something we see on TV, he has this need to defend the "other side" no matter how ridiculous. Today it was about a football pla<x>yer getting cut for having Type II diabetes. I have Type I and I know a whole lot more than he does about diabetes. I know how both types work and all the differences between the two. There was a commentator who said some ridiculous statement about "hundreds of athletes having Type II diabetes." I looked at my husband and said, "He is so stupid for saying that." My husband insisted he was right and went to look the information up online. Of course, he realized I was right. When I referred to the guy as stupid again, my husband had the nerve to tell me to "please refer to him as 'uninformed' and not 'stupid.'" I was incredulous. I said, "Why on earth do you care what word I use?" He said, "Because I like that commentator." My mouth dropped wide open. I said, "Are you trying to defend this person whom you've never met?" He maintained his position and I lost it on him. This is ridiculous! He ALWAYS defends the opposite position from my own. It doesn't matter how ridiculous he sounds or how wrong he is. It's like a sickness for him. Why on earth does he do this??? It feels so disrespectful and I'm just exhausted from it happening all the time.
Go through this daily with my husband no matter what I say. This is from a man who has a problem reading & understanding what he reads, while if I see letters, I read it no matter what or where.
Thats like my husband lol he dissagrees with everything i say or think but I love him I just feel we have nothing in common
My wife is somewhat similar. Except, she doesn't make those types of comments. Instead, I could be telling her about a neighbors house being sold for $$$$$, trying to get to my point in justifying renovating part of our house. She then proceeds to question me on the fact that it was sold. I then have to pull up proof online and now it's 10 minutes later, too exhausted to even continue with original thought.
It drives me insane. It could be about any subject. She just has to challenge me on anything because she says, "in my mind I don't remember it that way". So I could be talking about a candy bar, song, the sky, whatever and she'll interrupt me questioning something so arbitrary to where I'm going.
F'ing drives me to the point of telling her we need a divorce!
I have a friend who begins every response to what I've said, regardless of topic or subject matter, with "No...." Sometimes she starts with no and then says exactly what I said, but using different words. It's the most annoying thing. I swear if I said the sky were blue, she'd say "No... it's aqua." Good Grief!!!
LOL! Me too. Takes patience & practice dealing with someone like that but I say that if you don't care for them enough to work through it then it's prob best to part ways. My boyfriend and I have this issue & since I wish to cont our relationship I felt that it's been worth the effort. :) I think ignoring it woulonly go so far & burn you ou
I start to avoid them and cut them out of my life. I find it really annoying and frustrating as regardless of what I say, they just tend to disagree. Constructive criticism is good but not all the time and definitely not if its just for the sake of disagreeing. If I wanted to debate I would have gone into politics or been a lawyer!!! Also, all that negativity is hard to be around all the time - I'll rather surround myself with more positive folks.
I had a tenant like that once - he thought he was so smart if I said the Sun's going to rise tomorrow he'd say "You can't PROVE that". That God he's on the West Coast now - FAR away.....
That I may as well be with someone else - and I act upon it!
I stop talking to them.
frustrated at times.. because sometimes it is just so obvious that they are saying it to be contrary but whatever floats their boat.. one of my dearest friends is like this from time to time.. it's so funny because she will disagree with me about something so strange and then in a few days she'll bring it back up and mention how so and so told her something so now she is agreeing with it (what I said in the first place) funny after all these years
its frustrating...no lie... i get into it with my dad all the time. i love the guy alot but its almost like any idea i come up with is trash just because im too young.
Angry, there pathetic people that generally dont have anyone or anything else.
True, know only of one & they don't even have one friend & none of their family have anything to do with him, even his kids
Ugh, I feel like talking to this person is pointless and a waste of my time... unfortunately it is my boss. I have lost all care to communicate with him. He comes to me seeking advice and information on how to do something when I start making suggestions he wants to always question it. Why come to me in the first place. Do it yourself and then come to me after when you want me to fix it the right way, AFTER the fact. Don't waste my time.
The real issue is he is unqualified and I think he gets insecure and this is his way of holding me under his thumb. Good for you! I have been doing this stuff for 15 years and have a degree in it that is why YOUR boss hired me.
In an acquaintance/friend-of-a-friend situation, I keep them at a distance and determine that we will never be close friends.<br />
In a mate/significant other situation, which I'm currently in, and she questions EVERYTHING I say/suggest--from where to place a new plant in the garden, to how better to move a really heavy piece of furniture, to my own statements and recollections--it makes you feel as if you're never going to be trusted, never going to be allowed to lead, and that they must have a death grip on control at all times. In other words, it's infuriating, and it sucks.
thats my mother !!!
That its time to let someone else do mom's yard...;op
there's some statement that one would like to say, <br />
not ready to listen to others but his/her own..<br />
and you can have the choose to see if you want to stay in that loop..
How about avoid being around that person. Are you masochistic? If you can't agree on some things then your personalities are incompatible and you don't need to be communicating with them.
What a lot of answers to this question.<br />
Constant negativity - like I get from The Woman who... lives upstairs - makes me pissed off.
Its infuriating!!!!!!!!! but, than I also try to find out , why that person disagree with me alot........would like to know whts the reason, what s the pain he/she is having with my opinionz or whtever......moreover, I will also change my track n stop even to sit with those kind of ppl who are too negative to listen others.
