Are there some people who you just can't talk to for fear of losing your sanity? (or what's left of it). How do you deal with these people? Do you confront them or simply walk away? There is one person in particular whom I hate with every bone in my body, but the thing is she has the same friends I do so occasionally we bump into each other during parties, at bars, etc. She's basically everything you could hate in a person (self-centered, pompous, idiodic, racist, etc.) but for some reason she always seems to be around and I think she's under the impression that me and her are friends. I have a short temper and unbeknownst to everyone I've come extremely close to lunging at her from across a table and smacking her in the head quite a number of times...has anyone else been in this kind of situation?
