Default How to deal with difficult people

So I was just perusing my inbox (that sounds dirty when you think of it) when I noticed an email asking my to pay $119 to go to a seminar on "How to deal with difficult people". The Seminar promises (quote)

Never again fall victim to those who love to make life miserable for the rest of us ...


Among the techniques I will learn are:

You'll learn why they act the way they do.
You'll find out exactly what to say and do in specific situations.
You'll become less of a target for their barbs and antics
You'll see how to bring out the best in even the worst offenders.

My problem is, I'm a cheapskate and don't want to spend $119 for this...so...please enlighten me for FREE on how YOU deal with difficult people...

I like to say, "I'll come back when you're not so cranky." Oh, shit...sorry, Shawn...I didn't see you there.

Most people are uncomfortable with silence. I find it very effective to just stop talking, give a slight smile, and stare at them until they freak out. If you can resist the urge to respond, it usualy stops them dead in their tracks. Or you can just kill them where they stand...that works, too.

I have a hit man on retainer. Yes, I have to pay him but he's quite reasonable and if I have 5 people whacked, the 6th one is free.
