  • ignore them til they calm down
  • Do your best to bring them out of the anger..ignore them..or if they persist tell them to go away.. There are people like that who I have known and I have realised the best thing is to stay away from them.. :D
  • Avoidance and lots of distance.
  • I divorced my ex for that reason, they are extremely unhappy with their life and they take it out on the ones closest to them, Good Luck.
  • I avoid them, keep your distance until they are not angry anymore. +5
  • I guess since shooting them is out of the question, I would always act very calm, controlled, and straightforward with them. Any type of emotional response is likely to escalate the situation. If is severe, anti-anxiety/antidepressant medication is often extremely helpful (especially the class of drugs known as SSRI's). That is if they could calm down enough to listen to reason. +5
  • The best thing to do is not deal with them, however this isn't always possible, especially if it's a loved one. My best advice is, not to excuse the anger, but to recognize the person's need. People who are always angry tend to be afraid to express other emotions - such as insecurity, or fear. It's worth trying to address the source of the anger, rather than the circumstance. If you are successful at this, than you have a good chance to tell this person that they don't have an excuse for being an asshole any more. Sadly though, some people will never change. +4
  • Interestingly enough, ignoring them may not have an immediate result but if your patient and learn to block them out, they'll realize that you're not going to play into it and they'll give up. It took me many, many years to realize that. You really have to be patient though. It's not for those who lack willpower but it's the most effective thing you can do.
  • You shouldn't have to deal with them... I am a very blunt person and I usually call people or loved ones out on it...it makes a difference it gives them time to realize they are angry and a chance to vent!
  • I normally tell you to shut up
  • I point this out to them and then I walk away. Life is too short and peace is to precious to let someone p*ss in your punch. If they can't be nice, they aren't invited to my party.
