Can you help me figure out a nice way to tell someone to piss the f**k off and shut the f**k up?

Really struggling today.

It's a don't poke the bear kind of day, and she keeps poking the bear because she thinks it's funny.

TIA

I'm the last person to give this type of advice


Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.

If you are the bear in question then go with "Not today" and then if it doesn't work a "piss the f**k off and shut the f**k up"

If the bear is someone else, then try redirection. Pull them aside and let them know.

I am the bear today, on the bright side, I realize that I am the bear and have given fair warning.

This person thinks it's fun to poke the bear.

"Piss the f**k off and shut the f**k up" sounds like the best approach. Said with a wide disingenuous smile. And followed by, "Please."

You're a bear; bite her head off and be done with it (and her!)


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

If you wear glasses, a no fail move is to lower your head slightly and peer wordlessly over the top of your glasses until said bear poker slinks away. Works like a charm. Works on my kids also....added bonus.

Diplomacy is telling someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip!

Good luck!
