I am not sure there is a way to win with these people.

I was walking into Albertsons minding my own business. This lady is standing there smoking her cigarette and as I walk by she says:

"Where do you think you are going?"

I kind of smile and ignore her. She makes another remark.

It seems sometimes when you ignore these people and don't confront them they still become angry.

What is the best way to stay out of trouble?

How about you just say "I am going into Albertsons"?

I guess that would be a way to deal with it.

Doesn't matter. She would have had another remark. I wonder why it mattered to her. I mean, wasn't it pretty obvious you were going into Albertsons??? BTW, I miss ours.

I've always found that the best way to deal with dipshidiots is to ignore them whenever possible. It REALLY pisses off my inner redneck but it beats going to jail for stomping one into the pavement.

Just smile, nod your head turn and go into the store. If she's a pain to others, tell the store manager. If she's a nuisance he/she may call the police and have her removed. She could prove to be nutso on durgs or something. It's bad for business with people hanging around like that. My take.

If this is someone just out of the blue then I'd just leave then right there and not even acknowledge I heard them.

Wow! That is exactly, word for word, how I feel about it.

If I was in charge of writing the law, an appropriately applied ass-whoopin', when applied to a dipshidiot who desparately needs it, shall not be considered assault. Instead, it shall be considered a tax deductable act of public service......

Ps, mind if I borrow the word dipshidiot? Love it!
