Sep 9th 2009 11:20PM Assuming all your valuables are safely on your person, just stare at the person without responding with words or non-verbal cues.
Eventually the aggressive person will walk away thinking that your are an idiot or deaf.
Don't look at their hands or the merchandise or anything other than their eyes.
No positive response and no negative response drives these people bonkers.
If your up to it, follow them into the store (with your friend tagging along and doing the same as you), follow them into the store and continue to just stare at their eyes whatever they show you or say.
The coup de grace is to say shukran when they gesture for you to leave.
Jan 9th 2009 2:38PM I do not answer calls that display no number or name. When I speak with a person and want to return the call, I will ask for their telephone number even though they know that it is displayed on my caller ID.
I respect the privacy of my friends by not giving their email addresses or telephone numbers without their specific permission. And it is not a blanket permission for that person unless my friend approves.
You are not that important to be on a speakerphone. Pick up the handset or hang up the phone. You are not multi-tasking, you are multi-ignoring the other people in the room or me or your task at hand.

Oct 7th 2008 6:23PM Cloris, dear, or S. Gray whatever your avatar is, I'm not the one who used her television sitcom popularity and television talent in 1975 to attack a group of fat people.
Your comment has come back 33 years later to bite your albeit skinny but 82 year old ass.
Oct 7th 2008 11:09AM "I just can't bear fat bodies. 1 think there should be fat catchers, like dog catchers, to go around and put big nets over fat people and take them all someplace and get them slimmed down. And then show them what really good eating is. Because what they're doing is advertising their unhappiness and their anger or frustration for everyone to see, and 1 don't want to see it."
--Cloris Leachman, quoted in the December 1975 issue of Family Circle
Cloris, dear, your 86. Change "fat" for "old" and look in the mirror.
