Arguing With a Clueless Person

People like to argue. They like to verbally spar and match wits with other people. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that’s great and all, but the problem is everyone thinks that their opinion is the right one and some people are simply wrong. They will ignore facts and speak passionately about something that they know nothing about. They refuse to see reason. They talk just to hear themselves talk. They are wrong, but they don’t care, their only goal is to piss you off and make you angry. Arguing with a clueless person is an exercise in futility. You can’t win. He is far too dumb and way too proud to ever concede to reason, logic, and cold hard facts. He can never admit that you’re right because that would mean that he is wrong. All you can do is swallow your pride, walk away from the argument, and then bitch about that jackass to anyone who will listen.

Fighting on Vacation

You’re going to fight on your vacation. It doesn’t matter if you’re on vacation with your friends or with your family. It doesn’t matter if you’re an hour from home or twelve hours from home. At some point there will be raised voices and a heated exchange. It’s inevitable, it’s unavoidable, and it’s going to fucking happen. It’s impossible to be stuck in close proximity with other people without butting heads at some point. Every gets tired and cranky, and it doesn’t take much to rub someone the wrong way. Everyone has their own itinerary; their own stuff that they want to see or do, and not everyone will get their way. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices for the group at the expense of your own personal enjoyment. And sometimes you have to stand up for yourself and make a stink. Fighting on vacation is a tradition as old as going on vacation. You can’t have one without the other. Just try to resolve things before they get too escalated, because it’s better to suffer together than to suffer alone in a strange place.
