Do you know someone like this? How do you deal with them?

Someone who acts like a know-it-all. Who all acts superior.

I'm sure we all do. I just consider the source & avoid them. But sometimes that's easier said than done.

How do you handle those kind of people?

  • I would quickly walk away from them and not look back... Those people annoy me too much to tolerate

  • So you spend two days yelling at people for pointing out they think someone is a know it all, and then on day three start your own thread complaining about someone being a know it all?

    Think there's a word for that, starts with an h...

  • Tell them to kiss your ass and move on, it's pretty simple really. You remove yourself from the "relationship",

    ^^Exactly. You can put up with it for just so long. That is when I call someone out. This is the exact same thing that happened the other night. So why is it wrong for them not to put up with it any more?

  • The superior thing is my SIL
    She thinks she's all high and mighty because of her religion

  • If the delivery of the information is stringent and the information is inaccurate, I point out the inaccuracy and move on.

    If the delivery of the information is stringent but the information is accurate, I try to dismiss the delivery and learn something.

  • OK, I'll play, if it was about someone here, what makes you think it has anything to do with YOU?!

    I never said it was about me, nor that it was about anyone here at all. I was simply pointing out the hypocrisy of throwing accusations at MULTIPLE members of this site (and I wasn't even online at the time, so thanks for letting me know you were attempting to yell at me, too, even though I hadn't even answered the question yet), then turning around and complaining about the very behavior you were having a hissy fit over them complaining about.
