SILENT TREATMENT A GOOD WAY TO HANDLE RUDENESS

Silence is golden, especially when it comes to dealing with rudeness.  Experts say one of the best ways of dealing with someone who’s being rude, obnoxious or offensive is to give them the silent treatment!  Though it has long been considered passive-aggressive, simply cutting off conversation with a jerk helps you avoid unnecessary conflict.  It also keeps you from wasting energy.  In a study, participants who were forced to have an exchange with a rude person performed poorly on a task afterwards, while those who gave the jerk the silent treatment performed better.  But before you employ this tactic with your spouse, be warned: repeated use of the silent treatment can have negative effects on long-term relationships.
