How do you react,maybe out in public and someone is doing something that annoys you?For example if you're riding the subway and someone keeps stepping on your foot repeatedly?I'm just wondering what you would say or do?Do you confront the person?There are alot of annoyances out there in public.

If they would not stop stepping on my toe. I would stomp real hard on theirs. Then we would be on the train fighting like fools. But,they will not want to step on another foot in life.

That probably would make them not do it anymore,then you may get areaction back.I actually would probably step on their foot back.That's how I am,because I would get mad at someone doing that to me.Thanks

I just block them out. I've got a lot of good practice with tuning people out when I'm really not in the mood to listen to them or deal with them. I think I've gotten such good practice from tuning my mother out all the time whenever I'm not interested in listening to her.

That's a good idea.People sometimes get a charge out of annoying someone,I think you ignore it then they'll stop.

java09 I would say to the person who keeps stepping on my foot, excuse me, but would you mind getting off my feet ,I might need to use them when I get off the subway. thanks. and say it again if it happens again. If you do not stick up for your self in public who else will? you must not let people walk all over you as thats not any good.
