Calling someone out
January 3, 2009 1:32pm CST
Often, my friends tell me about someone annoying them or making them feel really bad at school, work, or other social situations. I say to them "Why didn't you say something to them or confront them?" I.E. why didn't you call them out on their bad behavior. They always tell me "It wasn't the right time and/or place, but I will speak to them about it" and never do. So, when someone acts badly and does something to annoy/hurt you in front of others, do you call them out right there? Do you wait? Do you thinking calling someone out on their behavior solves the problem or makes it worse?

hi smartie...from my experiences confronting someone brings out anger and makes things more hostile. i don't want to do it anymore. it's not worth it. there are no easy answers cause holding it in isn't always good either.

Walk away and stay away from people who try to make you look daft.Some tims you can make things worse and nobody really wants a row in public it is embarrasing and most of us have more to think about.If it really bothers you find the person later and ask them not to do it again.
