Hello everyone, I believe this is a thread everyone can relate to. Everyone has someone in their life that they hate. Someone they don't want to deal with. Even if those people are related. Like Debra and Marie Barone. Now it's easy to deal with those people on screen, or stage or in a book. But it's never that easy in real life. So my question is this; How does one deal with such people. For example, let's say you have moved out of your manipulative, controlling, lying duck of a father's house. You fought against his tricks and made sarcastic comments and stuff before you packed up, drove off without looking back. Now the jerk has sunk to e-mailing your mother to get to you. Finally he sends a short e-mail, just a "Hi, contact me" e-mail like nothing happened. How does someone deal with that? In case it isn't obvious, this is a flash fiction piece of non-fiction. Seriously this guy is creeping me out and I'm tempted to drive down there and slam my baseball bat into his car. Everyone has this kind of jerk in their life. So how do we deal with these jerks, as kindly as possible, but get the message across?
