You mean "do endless shikko until the pain in their shins forces them to repent"

Rude people...need to be forced into jobs at grocery stores, restaurants, hotels and coffee shops...until they realize how just one %#!*@ can really ruin your day...and how dealing with an endless succession of people like that, day in, day out, can frankly turn you psychotic.

Not that I just came home from work or anything... :grr: But it's exactly why I started training in Aikido! :D

Make them read every thread on ki across various boards followed by having to summarize every posters position using bullet points and three-d charts (and the odd moibus strip for some posters). Then, when they've done that, identify and categorize every form of "true or real aikido" (TM) by dojo, sensei and style - that should be painful enough for anyone.

Be polite. Excruciatingly polite. Always smile. Sincerely. Broadly. Without reservation. Keep that facade of cheerfulness firmly fixed in place.

Never vary from strictest rules of etiquette. They are "Mr.", "Miss", or "Mrs." and none of that mamby-pamby "Ms." stuff. We are talking traditional etiquette here! First names are never used in public.

Above all; Be Nice.

FWIW: I have actually used this approach with some very rude people. It doesn't make friends out of them by any means, but somehow the perception is that they are at fault for all conflicts...

Ground them down with your superior intellect and vocabulary untill they feel very small and insignifigant. Then hit them.

To tell the truth, just stand your ground and ask some manners of them. At work the other day I had finished my 8 hour nightshift and was catching a breather before I walked home. I had my feet up on the footstool (which I thought was fine, that being what a footstool is intended for?) and I was listening to my walkman. I noticed a canteen worker talking to me so I took the headphones out only to hear her say:

'Could you take your feet off that?' quite aggressively.

I looked at her and said: 'Please?'

She seemed a bit taken aback and told me she had said please three times when I had my earphones in, I apologised but said that it wasnt my fault. Problem solved.

mate maybe before she started getting aggressive she should have first made sure she had your full attention

Thats exactly my point. It's fairly obvious that you probably wont get someones attenttion who's listening to a walkman and isnt looking in your direction and is suffering from sleep deprivation :p

Hi Karen,

Please don't be offended with what I am about to say,

In life it is not our place to try and change the attitudes of others, it or responsibility to make sure our attitude is how we expect others to be. People will be and do what people do, so thinking up punishments for them gets you on where, and the abuse of power makes the punishment worst that the rudeness of the perpetrator.

Trust in your self that you are a kind and gentle human being and maybe the rude person you speak of will learn from your actions or inactions that there is another way.

Remember always be the teacher as you are always the student.


Take care be Happy and smile heaps

Perry :)

Hi Nick,

You have a great job and I am not being sarcastic or offensive, all work is good it is healthy to work, a job will be what you make of it, I know people who are executives in corporations that hate their jobs, and I know some store persons that love their jobs. Imagine all the people you are helping around your area because you do the job you do, congratulations for being the one to take on that responsibility, what the world needs is more people like you.

Take care have fun enjoy life

Perry
