Tak Tanya Pun!

I have a question for you guys.

How do you deal with people who always insist on 'upping' everything you do. For instance, you do something and they come up and say they're doing the same thing too albeit in a more boastful way. Everything you can do, they can also do.

And it gets even worse when you don't involve them in your conversation but they just never fail to sneak in and boast that they also do the same thing you're doing! Who in heaven's name asked them?

Tell me, what would you guys do? I'm on the verge of decking this person with a good left hook!

  4. LOL Adrian made a typo XD

    Anyways nick. OH gawd. Dun get me started with "know it all" people. It gets on my nerves! I mean seriously. If we were talking and this "bug" bugs in, I'll be annoyed and it shows. I'd throw in some sarcasm with it too.

    But come to think of it, do u really ask that fellow back. I mean since you're the one who started the conversation about doing this and that, how 'bout like asking back about the details.

    They don't know it all. They just say they know but actually they don't know or never done it. So yeah, these kinda ppl piss me off. I try to avoid these kinda ppl. Hope you find a solution for this XD

  10. Maslight - He did? I pun tak notice ... hehehe ...

    You have a point, maybe one day I'll actually ask them back and see how they response. These kind of people really get on my nerves la ...

    I do my best to avoid them but sometimes they just don't get the message. Maybe I should just tell them off to their face ...

  11. nick this people need you to give them this combo... baca betul betul and then do it to them..im sure they will knock out terus..

    2 uppercut, 2 hooks,1 back fist, 2 bodyrib, 2 jab,2 knees, 1 jump kick and lastly 1 round house kick..im sure with that combo.. he/she will pengsan. (i hope you belum pengsan before trying it out to your opponent :P)

    But seriously, this people deserve to be thrown to the lubang tandas la...bertabiat melebih lebih i tell you.

  12. Don't we all have at least one person like that in our circle? LOL!

    One of my superior in school is like that. Everytime she does that ultimate annoying habit of her... I will just give her that 'Tak Tanya Pun' look, ignore her without saying anything. It is rude I know but after sometime, I think she deserves it. I guess, she got the hint already and seldom interrupt whenever I talk to someone. Ha!

  13. Reminds me of the tune, "Everything you can do, I can do betterrrr..." I don't know what song it is but yeah, that tune!

    True what Carol said, we all have at least one person like that.. There's a family friend that does that AND more! If I say I'm sick, she worse off. Another friend says she has had insomnia for 2 weeks, she has it for 4 months.

    The thing is, if you change the topic, she'll steer you back no matter what. Annoying is an understatement.

    Might try Mel's tactic. LOL!

  17. These kind of people are like parrots, hehee! They say what others say + the too. Annoying!

    In one instance, a not so close friend of mine asked me about how much I received for a salary. I told her, then she said, mine, too. I was wondering how it could be when she had a job in a lower category than mine, lol!

  18. Emelda - You know when I was doing martial arts all those years back, the round house kick was my weakest move la ... LOL!

    But yeah, your idea sounds great :D I get utterly irritated with people like these. They just don't know when to shut up!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Carol - Good to know I'm not the only one ... LOL!

    Some people no matter how much signs you give them, they just cannot see how annoying they are until you really tell them off to their face la ... that would probably be the best way to shut them up!

    And if that fails, there's always Emelda's suggestion ... LOL!

  20. Shemah - If not mistaken, that song was composed for the 1946 Broadway musical, Annie Get Your Gun ... ok, ok, I didn't know that, I Googled it ... LOL!

    But yeah, that song is just apt for this post. Why do people have this need to 'one up' someone I honestly have no idea, and especially when you don't even involve them in the conversation!

    Yeah, Mel's idead is beginning to sound great ... hahaha ...

  23. Marzie - He's doing that just to irritate me ... LOL!

  24. Marzie - I have relatives like that la. Whenever wifey and me buy some new stuff for the home, the next day we'll see it in their place.

    *shakes head in amazement*

    Next time don't la tell your friend you looking for new suit, buy dulu then show off to her. Im sure that'll piss her off ... LOL!!
