    Do you insult back?
    Do you fight them?
    Do you get even?
    Do you ignore them?

    :hello: Adrian Thomas ... Welcome Welcome Welcome ... :wave:

    I generally ignore such ... as everyone is free to say what they want out of their own mouths. I can't control that.

    I suppose it can rise to a level that makes me act, depending on the circumstances ... but that is rare.

    In fact, as i think on it ... ignoring is an act ... so i guess it's not so rare after all ... :thinking:

    But generally ... what they've said speaks more about them ... than me.

    Thanks for joining us and sharing! Please make yourself at home!

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Sorry didn't mean to go too fast. You know if someone comes up disrespecting call you an idiot or fool. Talking about how stupid you are.

    I tell I'm not going to lower myself to insulting you back and then walk away. If they want to make it physical after that, I don't carry a pistol for no reason.

    I try my best to ignore them unless if course they jump in my face and want to get physical. I try to diffuse the situation the best I can just don't try to lay hands in me.
