How to be polite to annoying people
Even though we chose the people we hang up with, sometimes we have to share some moments with annoying people.
Being in contact with this kind of people help us develop our internal virtues like strength, patience and serenity.
Even when they are clearly stupid we should always act classy.
It’s just a matter of practice and you will never fail into deliver perfection even when you are in front of a dull.
The very best thing you can choose to do is to not acknowledge them at all.
At the beginning it can be difficult but you just need to play some music in your head or think about something completely different than what they are talking.
If you listen to what they are saying to you they win.
After we master the art of faking we are ready to the next step.
Going a step further is even better.
When someone annoys us choose to be kind to them, of course you should not be their friend because it is necessary to keep distance from such individuals but you should do it with kindness and smiling.
If someone does something in front of you that shows their lack of humor, smile at them, not with a true smile of course but try your best to convince them they are funny.
Give them all the smiling you are able to so they will never find out they are stupid.
That would not stop them from behave ridiculous but would help you to improve your kindness and social skills.
After smiling you will like to add something to the conversation. A little comment that trigger more stupidity.
You don’t have to panic or try to make them shut, just relax and say something very vague.
This will get to them to reload the arguments and start all over again with the nonsense conversation.
After you master doing this, it is actually quite enjoyable to know that the best way to get under some people’s skin is to refuse to let them get under yours.
Always be cool.
You must keep your amazing attitude whoever you are with, do not allow the person behaving poorly to change that.
Your charming temperament will show your class and their lack thereof.
Let your actions speak for you, they speak louder than words anyway.
Most people will hang themselves if you give them enough rope.
Confidence can absolutely put out someone’s fire toward you, if they know they can’t get to you, what is the point of continuing to try; they may still dislike you from afar but you don’t care because you are superior.
Do not show that what they do bothers you, hang in there.
The best way to succeed in dealing with boring people is to be able to enjoy being sarcastic with them.
That is the opposite of what they expect from you so it’s worth doing it.
By watching you happily facing annoying people noisy comments and dully jokes, everyone will know that you are a winner.
the world must know the truth!

Social media chivalry
Either if you use the social media to promote your business or just to flirt around there are a variety of rules specific to social networking that you have to follow if you want chivalry to prevail.
In this article I present the cardinal guidelines of social networking to avoid being discourteous.
There is a certain cadence people expect you to have when you social network and if you exceed it you piss them off.
For example, I haven’t seen anyone go above five tweets per day and be popular.
Remember, is important to be smart and fun but is way more important to be modest.
The first rule then can be set as following: firmly avoid talking about the same thing everyone else is talking.
If you talk to someone and that person simply don’t answer back there are two options, is deaf or the most uneducated person you’ve ever met.
When someone sends you a message you’re supposed to write back.
I know it might seem like common sense or even just basic human decency but some individuals doesn’t seems to be grown in a human environment and need to be told about this.
It’s ok being an anti-social monster or a sick maniac depressive that doesn’t want human interaction but try to hide it, act normal so we don’t realize it.
So remember, if one of us, the normal people, talks to you, the weirdo, then you just say something back.
It’s simple. Is not hard, you can do it.
There is of course an exception: Blackberry users.
For the 5 of you out there that join me in the Blackberry use, please don’t feel that pressure since your phone is probably hiding most of the interactions you have.
A couple of weeks ago I found almost 19 Google chat conversations inside my satanic phone.
Conversations filled with questions, demands and increasingly desperate pleas for a response.
Another warning regarding the ‘Always reply’ rule is that it gets a little harder on weekends.
One of the big benefits of social media is the opportunity to be short and simple, so use it.
Be careful, don’t go to the other side and respond to a ten word question with ‘Yes’.
Use common sense, read your message a couple times before sending it and ask yourself how you would interpret this if you were the other person.
Everybody likes proper punctuation.
Punctuation is not a matter of taste, how you punctuate something can make a big difference in how it’s interpreted.
‘Ok’ feels a lot different from ‘ok!!’
Punctuation is an important part of establishing the mood you’re in when writing.
Never, ever, log into a chat, get a request to begin chatting, ignore that request and go offline.
To the person on the other end it can come across as a network error or they can assume that you are a horrible person.
Noblesse oblige I admit to having done this a couple of times, again, in my defense, I have a Blackberry.
And Blackberry main feature is to constantly log you into chat services against your will.
Well guys, I have to go. Nice talking to you!
