Suck it up? Huh? No hablo ingles. ;)

I either smile and put them in their place, or completely ignore them. Which also effectively shuts their asses down.

But suck it up? No. ;)

I do one of two things...

i either just walk away ~ or ~

I ask them "Did it hurt?"

They always say "did what hurt?"

"That great big bug that crawled up your ass to make you this way...."

Maybe they need someone that will stand up to them & give them a taste of their own medicine. OR, they're miserable as hell & want you to join them! Don't join them! The more you smile & gloat in their face, the more they will be catty, & bitchy OR, they may say, aw heck, if you can't beat em, join em & do a 180. Who knows?

Depends on where I meet them. At work I kill them with professionalism - by not responding to or acknowledging their bitchiness at all. We do not have time for girly games.
Private I may bitch right back, or I'm too stunned to react much at all. I'm not used to people behaving like they are 14 any more.

I usually just keep my mouth shut. Trying to point out that their "attitudes" are showing will only get a verbal dressing down. It is sincerely not worth the mental upset to be drawn into their usually public displays of childish behavior that only make them look worse more infantile than they already sound. :)

Let them be bitchy, see how bitchy you can get them just to mess with them. Then when they are not in their mood thats when you lay down the hammer and give it back and walk away. They wont know what the heck happend! baaaaaaam!

Suck it up? Women like that are the ones most likely to taste horrible! ;P

I think that if someone is this unhappy, there is something wrong. I never try to make people feel bad, but then I don't feel bad about myself, either.

That is--that's my reaction if it's directed at me. I can take it. If I see people (and I mean people--men can be just as catty and btchy as any woman, if not moreso) being mean to someone else, I'm liable to get angry and do something to make the person they were picking on feel better.

I usualy give warnings ... It works perfectly in situations like dealing with a catty bitch . Basicaly I will politely say something that will get the point across that they are crossing the line and pushing my buttons and if they dont back the F*** up I am going to make damn sure they really wish they would have ...

I let catty, bitchy PEOPLE be that way until I can no longer stand it. Then I settle the score in one or two ways. I either take them aside and ask if there is something going on that they need to talk about, if everything is okay. Or I go at them full force and knock them to the ground with our public conversations. I got my nic here from my nic at work, which is torture. I've worked long and hard. And have earned that nic, and I will continue to use it until I can't back it up anymore.

If a girl gives me the elevator eyes and some bitchy attitude, what I like to do is flash her a big smile and wave, then walk away. That seems to really piss them off!

I mostly ignore it. But if it's that level of bitchiness where you just can't take any more. Throw a box of Midol at her and say, "Obviously, you need this more than I do. Have a wonderful day."

Lawl, well, most people shy away from them. I'd put them in their place if they have no reason whatever for being that way. If they do, I'll let it slide...unless they attack me. Then they'll see that this betch has sharper claws and will tear them to shreads! :D

I turn sickeningly sweet and they don't know how to handle that. They finally give up and go the other way because their behavior is having no effect on me.

Hi almostsinful,

Rise above, and beyond their silly ways. And, if you can manage to do put them in their place with a smile, all the better for you.

Personally, I just make sure to continue what I am doing to make them more bitchy and miserable. I flip my long hair and give them one of my evil smiles and strut away from them so they can throw their imaginary daggers at my back.

Funny you should ask that, I dealt with one yesterday. she made a snide remark to me and was laughing at me to embarass me. I sid, "that's not funny and you're being rude'. I was in a good mood so everyone else thought she was rude too. 98% of the time I politely call someone out on their behavior but if it's really bad and it's consistent and it's clearly malicious AND I'm a bad mood, I would rip her to shreds. I will never start a fight but I sure as shit will finish one.

I find lines like this work a treat :

"Oh dear, did our meds run out today?"
"When I want your opinion, I'll give it to you!"

or, my all time favourite reply to an insult (but must be done with a sincere smile) :

"Oh! Thank you very much!"
