Things that would be interesting for people to think about -- do you run into similar situations often? How do you deal with people who rub you the wrong way? What if they're constantly in-your-face? Is it any different if you know that they are not trying in any fashion to be irritating? Is it better to keep one's dislike entirely internal, to let it be known, or something else? One of my closest friends, for example, claims to be entirely frank, prone to telling people what he thinks. I am unsure if this is an exaggeration, an amusement, or completely true, but it is an interesting perspective, and part of me craves that radical openness. Is it worth the social costs? Are there situations where one must learn to put this aside, such as public office or politics? What about the workplace?
