I tell em to get out of my life and shut up!

Not really. I just ignore them, and talk shit behind their back like most people do.

Okay. If my mom were giving you advice, she’d say “Kill em with kindness” but I mainly stick to avoidance.

I’m with Bakerella, I choose just to avoid those I don’t like. Even with many years of musical theatre under my belt, I still can’t hide the fact that I detest someone. It’s normally best for everyone if we don’t speak. 🙂

@bakerella: haha I grew up with my dad telling me that.

 

I usually avoid/ignore them so I don’t have to think about how awful they are. Not the best advice out there.

It really depends on the situation because sometimes you have to deal with people you don’t like. My tolerance for this is really low so generally I just ignore them and don’t deal with them. 🙂

Sometimes people need to be told what’s what, depending on the situation.

Other than that, I think killing with kindness can be good. That way if they are behaving poorly you’ll look great AND the person, though you may not like them, may be a valuable asset in the future.

I use a combination of avoidance and kill them with kindness at work and in awkward group situations (like parties or outing where someone invites one or your least favourite people) and avoidance everywhere else. I try to avoid them as much as possible, but when there is no other option, which happens frequently at work, I’m just polite and sweet.

My mom always said to remember that if you don’t like someone chances are they dont like you either- so it makes it easy to stay out of their way.

Depends on why I don’t like them and who they are to me.

If its someone that is close to another person in my life then I try to focus on the good and, yes, kill them with kindness so that they like me. If someone likes you, generally its easier to like them (or at least recognize the good traits)

IF its just an acquantance, I ignore.

I tend to avoid people I don’t like.  I’ve tried to “kill them with kindness” but some of those people will talk to me more if I do that and it only makes the situation worse and makes me more (visibly) irritable.

I tell them where to go and how to get there! lol… No I’m kidding here, although sometimes I wish I could really tell them where to go. I just try and avoid them.

It really depends on how they are in your life.  If its someone I don’t see often, I normally avoid speaking to them, or am polite but not personal with them (hope that makes sense).

Depending on why I don’t like them, I’ll just tell them the truth, if it means not having to be around them again!
