when i mean over react, really exaggerating. do you just ignore, tolerate, or slam to their face that he/she is exaggerating? in my experiences, i tell them flat in the face that they are over reacting. and i usually get into fight because of this. i just can't stand people who think what's happening in they're life are the most of most things.

ah yes! i am straightforward and tells them nothing will even change even if they over react... i tell them don't be "OA" over acting... its usually used for people who seemed to work with their mouths than with their hands or mind. :)

i agree with you, these people should know when to stop blabbering about how things are going. boasting sometimes can be tolerable, but if you know the person is really liked that, he better know not everyone will listen.

I normally tell them to calm down and stop being so dramatic, I need more practise in it though because my youngest daughter is a total drama queen and exagerates everything, hopefully only being two she will outgrow it but if not il need to be able to tell her to calm it down thats for sure!

she's only two, she can outgrow it with your proper guidance. i have a brother who's a really cry baby, i tried talking he's not supposed to cry just because somebody told you your smelly. he was spoiled too much by mom so he's liked that. usually i tell him to not take himself too seriously.

It depends on the person, but most of the time i ignore it until they stop. some people are way too overly dramatic...if it's my hubby i plain out tell him he's overreacting & to stop & not worry...others i just not tell them things what would get them fired up.

It really depends. There are instances when I could just ignore it. At times, I just tolerate. I ignore or tolerate if I am already used to how these people react no matter how exaggerating it may be. However, there are also times when I get really irritated so I tell them flat in the face that they are over reacting or that they are so exaggerated.
