'No', If someone say 'no' to you unexpectedly, how will you react?
April 10, 2007 7:11am CST
The word 'no' has too many meanings depending on the situation, the act, the tone of saying it and so on. If someone says a 'no' to you unexpectedly how will you react? Will you withdraw from doing/saying something or will you question 'why?' or will you ignore it and continue. I know, it depends on the situation but if you believe what you are doing/saying is 100% right what will be your immediate reaction? Please share your responses.

I think everyone's initial reaction to someone saying no unexpectedly is to be hurt. If you are asking something of someone and you are sure they will say yes, you are caught off gaurd with a "no" and therefore feeling a little wounded. Depending on who the person is and what I am asking, depicts whether or not I will question "why" If it is work related and my boss says "no" then I will probably just say ok and go on about my business. If it is a friend or family member, I will probably ask why they said no.

The rection depends on the person who said 'no'. Even if i'am right n my elders have done this, i can't argue with them. But if it's my good frnd, i'll please her(once or twice, not more than that) n even if she doesn't say yes then no matters, i don't want it.
