On being a contrarian…

Do you know someone who is always on the opposite side of your opinion. I’m not talking about your spouse, it’s supposed to be that way. But someone who always starts out their response with “Well, actually…”

Star Wars vs Star Trek, DC vs Marvel, Republican vs Democrat vs some weird 3rd party, Christian vs Pagan (Don’t even get me started on the Religious sub cultures, that’s and issue that loses more friendships than any)

Some people just like to hear your opinion first so they can play “devil’s advocate” and just get on your nerves. It’s tough to be friends with people like this. How do you deal with it? Well, you can always ask a bunch of follow up questions if they are the type of person that makes statements. The best way is just to keep quiet and not share your opinions. Someone can’t shoot you down if you don’t give them any ammo. Read twitter posts, Facebook status and just grin and move on. But you can’t can you? You must be right all the time, so unleash your best with no mercy and enjoy no friendships. I should delete this blog…
