If you have never experienced a person who says something offensive while smiling the entire time or laughing afterwards, either you are the luckiest person on the planet to have avoided such a person, or you’ve been living under a rock. Whatever the case, here are my top 3 ways to beat the nice-nasty girl.
Ignore her. I know that our parents taught us this at a very young age. If you ignore a bully, she will leave you alone. Believe it or not, it works!
Ask for clarification. Sometimes, nice-nasty people think they can say what they want (as SHADY as it might be) and never be confronted. Instead of letting it slide, ask “What do you mean by that?” or “Are you saying ______?” Most of the time, the person will back off immediately and sometimes even take back what she said. Beware of the women who feel confronted and get loud and aggressive in an attempt to “win” in that situation. Choose your asking approach wisely.
Have a serious conversation. Sometimes, the nice-nasty girl is someone who is a regular part of your life. When this is the case, you can set up a private meeting with her, and talk through whatever may be bothering you and her. Clearly, there is a problem that causes her to act so passive aggressively. Hopefully, you can create a space to discuss and resolve any underlying issues that may be present.
Good luck on getting rid of drama in your life!
