  • I mentally sew their mouth shut. The thought process of it is distracting enough to keep me from having to actually listen to them.

  • I ignore them. Being obnoxious is no fun if nobody acts like they are being annoyed!

  • As much as I am annoyed by them.. I just ignore them.. they want attention and I don't feed into it.

  • I try my best to ignore them. But it does depend on who they are and how long I have to be around then too.

  • Give them a piece of my mind. If they are years older than me then I ignore them

  • It really depends on the person and situation. In general, I find that not losing my shit and remaining calm and rational, yet very clear in my communication putting them in their place, tends to get them to work themselves all up in a frenzy.
