know it alls... how do you cope

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What do you do when in conversation everything you say is shot down?

Example. Conversation is cell phone cameras

I say " have you heard about the new windows phone, it has a 41mega pixel camera"

And I am instantly told that isn't true.

WTH

Conversation on Snowden, I asked why Russia, where I had heard he was, wanted to give him asylum, I was corrected... He isn't there, they won't do that

So what do you do. How do you deal with k ow it all's that are actually wrong.

Yes! That's what it is...technically the airport is international territory. Thats how he is getting away with it.




Quoting Anonymous:

I could be wrong. I heard he was in Moscow's airport. Then today I heard on the news Russia is offering to let him stay





Quoting Anonymous:

I thought he wasn't in Russia, technically.

Better than talking to a one upper.

"I just got a new smartphone. Its an LTE Avid."
"OH! Well I'm getting the new Galaxy next week!"

"I just got a raise!"
"Oh yeah, I'm getting promoted next week probably and getting a big raise!"

"I made a steak for dinner last night."
"OH YEAH WELL WE HAD LOBSTER AND FILET MIGNON WITH MUSHROOM RISOTTO AND SUSHI AND TIRAMISU."

seriously though, what's wrong with that? 

just tell them "check the specs for it on the Windowphone site, that's what it says there."

I have this convenient rule I've learned while working in the service industry throughout high school and college. It goes like this: don't argue with stupid. Even if you win, the satisfaction won't be worth the time or the energy you will have wasted for the argument.
