quote TheESCapistI totally agree with you there, so I don't like pictures unless they tag me in them, or they're my own.Yeah talking about ignorance on Facebook, that really pisses me off when you see one like equals one prayer for this dead baby or one like and Facebook will donate a dollar to "it" do people think that will work? Do they
actually not realize that it's just so the person
that posted the photo gets likes??? gGtdkfmfkfkjf...
quote AdrienneNo, I humor them. Very few people are willing to learn about how full of shit they are so educating them is a waste of my time. Though if I don't have anything witty to say, then yeah, ignoring them is definitely an option.When you're faced with a situation like mine above (I'm not saying everyone has to agree with my adverse reaction, just providing a personal example), do you call them on their BS? Do you ignore them? Do you get argumentative and take out your cell phone to search for "% of whites on welfare."?
quote AdrienneA couple of days ago I had to deal with a rude customer who--for no apparent reason--decided to say that I should be laid off, and while being escorted away by his party, resorted to calling me a cocksucker. I just ignored it because at work, I don't have time to deal with ignorant people such as that.In most face to face instances like this, I choose to just ignore the ignorant comment. If it's something I'm well educated on, I try to school someone on the real facts.
So I guess my question is: When you're faced with a situation like mine above (I'm not saying everyone has to agree with my adverse reaction, just providing a personal example), do you call them on their BS? Do you ignore them? Do you get argumentative and take out your cell phone to search for "% of whites on welfare."?
(I had to bite my tongue and keep to myself that, ironically, earlier that day a white woman used her EBT card to purchase a phone.)
quote Adrienneregardless. unless it's someone you know, or you happen to be in academic settings, why would you waste 5 - 30 minutes of your time arguing over something so trivial? it's pretty funny when someone makes a dumb comment over facebook and someone just can't let it go and had to find the need to 'school' them. the 5 minutes of correcting someone you barely know can be invested towards something else.Hmm, maybe I should have left the "at work" part out... It doesn't have to be an at-work scenerio. I know that most people would not respond to spark an argument with a customer.
