    First I consider the source, normally someone who is very insecure. Then I hit them with an insult right back, Usally a better one that burns them.

    I consider the source of the insult.

    If it's somebody that I don't have any feelings for one way or the other, then I'll ignore it.

    If it's somebody that I don't particularly like, then they get the insult back plus a whole lot more!

    generally your first reaction should be a surge of mixed emotions....then most people will insult back...or cower in fear and give in to the insult.....you should just be like "im not going to take your insults, im done." and then just walk away

    If it's a man I make sure he understands and if he here's me he is my brother.if he doesn't,whether I can kick his a.s.s or not we will find out.

    If it is the girl I live with right now I try to express how I feel and attempt to talk it out.But if she is not willing, I don't say a word to her unless I absolutely have to for the last three months and will leave soon.

    Anger, to be honest, then I realize I can't do anything about it--I am not going to hit them or insult them back, I just walk away and freeze them out of my life forever. Total silence forever.

    it all depends on the situation, is it a guy I do not know or a guy I do know, is is a girl and so forth

    but usually I stop dead in my tracks turn look them straight in the eyes

    and give tiny kind of dirty smile

    and ask do you really want to get into this..and they usually think i am nuts and leave saying all kinds of stupid stuff

    smile

    good luck

    No wonder your parents, along with everyone else hates you.

    That's what I'd probably say, I'd don't like to be insulted.
