Everyone knows there are shitbags that start yelling at you, and inevitably end up all in your grill. Almost touching you, and shouting in your face.


How do you get them to back off without escalating things?


My current options:

- Push them: Shit hits the fan.
- Yell at them to back off: Most likely they won't listen, or take it as you imposing yourself and shit hits the fan.

... help?

punch them square in the solar plexus

maybe thats a slight escalation but its over pretty quickly as they are unable to catch their breath long enough for you to walk away and disappear

Hit on them. They're not going to commit a hate crime, and even if they do you get on Ellen. Win win.

Who is the person to you Minc?

I don't really find myself in situations where I get heated with people other than family members, and much of the time it could be easily avoided by not conversing with them in the first place. Caring about what other people think is one of the worst traits I have in me and I'm trying to eradicate it.

If someone criticises or insults you then they might actually have some aspect of truth to it. Instead of getting on the defensive, keep calm, think about it and maybe even agree with them. If not then don't give them any attention.

Literally anything else besides turning and walking away or saying sorry is going to exacerbate it. Not difficult to comprehend.

Wtf did you do that has this guy so worked up, anyways?

Imposed myself as a fully capable and independent adult, refusing to subject to silly arbitrary rules.

I thought about that too.
On the upside, if you survive you have undeniable evidence of assault.

Personally though, I'd rather just take off my pants.

Family feuds are always difficult because you don't pick your family like you do friends, and most of the time you will feel like your arguments have no bounds.

In my particular case my family have issues with me because I try to understand everything around me sort of like anthropologically, and will talk about theories and concepts I've learnt from either uni or through listening/reading really cool things. They tell me that I go too deep into everything and that they don't care about understanding things like I do and that they feel intimidated and find me pretentious and that I come across as patronising.

Since I'm now aware that that's how they perceive me I don't even try to engage with them in conversations anymore because every time I do it will result in them getting frustrated with me, and then me having to explain how I'm not trying to patronise them or inflate my own ego by showing them up. Of course nothing of what I say matters because to them I don't come across them the right way. Sure it's not my intention, but you're not only responsible for what you say but what others perceive from what you say.

Some people are incompatible. It's good to know when someone is worth your time. Sometimes trying to put the fire out will only fan the flames. Learn to give up.

Sigh.

1:30 AM, he was watching tv, I was on the computer. He saw me on the computer, told me to shut it off and go to bed. This is a thing that has always happened but I just pretend to go to bed and then secretly go on the PC (like what's happening now), and I've never questioned and started imposing myself until recently.

Anyway, the computer is the big problem here. I called bullshit on that and said that if he can watch tv until he pleases, then I can be on the PC.
He immediately started yelling at me and got all worked up. I was calm at first, but after hearing him say some really stupid shit I snapped back and told him to stop yelling at me (I yelled, but I was in a different room so it's justified ).

He came running and got all up in my grill, with his fist raised and shit, and I was all like o.O wtf, so yeah this sort of explains this thread.

But it's not the first time he got up in my face with his fist raised, and probably won't be the last because I won't shut up when being yelled at for no reason

Hmm... Ok so how old are you?

Sounds like this guy has issues with control tbh. Seems like such a trivial thing to get so worked up about. If you're going to talk to him about it further then ask what about you being on the PC bothers him in the first place and then go from there.

Geez. That dude might end up being one of those controlling wife abusers.

Does he have his own? If not, then maybe he wants to use it too. If so, then can't you get a laptop to use when he wants you off?

22, and yup, control issues seem pretty accurate :P

Idk what's wrong with computers, but in his mind being on a computer is way worse than watching tv, even though I tried explaining there's no real difference between the two (and he only listens to what he wants to, whenever the argument isn't going his way he just gets angry and starts yelling, and tells me to shut up).

He has his own laptop btw @ Joshua

Nah you still can, just click on the number.

A concerning situation indeed. Mostly for his mental health harming others.

Just try to remind him you're family and have no bad blood.

Who is this person, exactly?

If it's a sibling, knock 'em the fuck out. If it's a parent and they pay your expenses, do as you are told or get your own place.

If it's part of your extended family (cousin etc.) see the "solar plexus" advice above.

Unless the problem is that you're afraid of taking an ass kicking?
