With the coming of an age of electronic communication, we are now in a closer knit world. It is not only bringing us together, but also sucking the peace from our lives. Sooner or later we end up being so annoyed by some people in our life that we desperately start looking for ways to get rid of them. The block option on various networking sites is a blessing in disguise in such situations when we feel haggard by interacting with those people. Unfortunately, there is a world beyond the virtual space too. Here we are not provided with the option of removing someone from our friend list very conveniently with a single click. There arises an alarming situation where we feel the need to take some immediate action. So we plan to kill the person, in our head. If you happen to relate with such plan of action, here are some easier ways to implement which would make that person hate you. You would stop existing for that person. Isn’t this a win win situation.
- Stop receiving their phone calls
This is a start. You should start with avoiding their phone calls. May what happen do not pick up their call. It is not like you are a doctor who is being called by that one person to save his life. (If you are, then move to the next point directly). And if you happen to be an overtly sentimental being who cannot cut a phone call considering it too rude, then put the phone on silent simply the moment it starts ringing. The best you can do is to put their number in the blocked list. To them your number would be eternally busy then. There definitely would come a time when they would get the message.
- Read the messages but don’t reply
This is the classic way of pissing off someone in the 21st century. With the coming of the ‘blue tick’ system on Whatsapp, you can execute your plan really well. Simply read the messages and ignore it altogether. You may choose to reply after a few hours or maybe after a day. It all depends upon the intensity of your desire to shoo away that person from your life. When confronted you can very easily complain about your bad memory. Repeat such excuses every now and then. You would be seen as a disregarding person soon enough by her/him. Mission accomplished.
- Criticize their looks
This is one tricky way. The idea is to criticize and not make passive comments. While sitting in a group of colleagues or friends criticize on the wrong color combination of her dress with her heels. Or you may even throw in some unasked advice in her face. Consistency is the key. Every human has a level of endurance and patience. With your constant criticizing the person would come to abhor you thoroughly.
- Be a pathetic listener
It is maybe their extreme chatty behavior that makes you feel like running miles away from them. Till this time you have been allowing them to be the speaker being the docile one. But now it is time to shed your docility. When the chatter box is all set to bore you to death, come up with your story to tell. Tell the person about how sick your old grandma is. Go on and on telling him how you wish you could be by her side. Next time the person approaches you be ready with yet another depressing story to narrate. No diehard fan of constant chattering would be able to endure such treatment for long. S/he would hate you now for interrupting her/his stories. You would lose the place of patient listener in their life for which you were approached to.
- Discuss their secrets publicly
You once might have been the ‘privileged’ ones by knowing about his/her secrets. But with a twist and turn of fates you no longer are comfortable with such privileges being endowed on you. The best way to get out of such situation would be to have a big mouth and discuss those secrets in public. Ofcourse it has to be done while the person is around and that too with some significant people of his life. (A little caution here)You would definitely have to face some music. But once that is over, that person would be despising you and what you did for life.
- Forget your etiquette
It is often that you might be forced to be civil and sweet to someone that you detest from the bottom of your heart. Yes, my signal is towards some unwelcomed family members who have made you hate them with their interfering attitude. Make them hate you now. Be least bothered about serving them food in a family dinner. Be docile to everyone but to that one relative. To fasten the process start you may adopt a sarcastic and taunting tone with them.
- Talk loudly when s/he is watching tv
Receive all your fictitious important calls exactly at the time when s/he sets down to watch her/his favourite show. Since there is always a network problem in your phone, ofcourse you would have to yell and talk so that the person on the other end of the line is able to hear you. There for sure cannot be any other alternative. Roam around the house pretending to look for network, coming and going in front of the television hundreds of times. This must be repeated for days if you want her/him to really hate you and be irritated by you as well.
- Break something precious
We are not talking about breaking hearts here, but rather something that is near to the heart of that person. You may break a favorite vase or a photo frame in front of her/him. Over a span of week break at least two-three things exactly in front of her/his eyes. Do not forget to be all sorry about it. The more puppy face you put on, the more they would burn in rage internally. They would start avoiding to meet you for meeting you would bring back the memories of their much loved broken goods.
- Stop paying little debts
It is okay between friends to not pay back little debts. But the ‘okay’ attitude becomes unbearable for the other person when the little debts exceed to a big one. Let go of the idea of paying back. Enjoy the free little treats all because you forget to bring your wallet every now and then. Promise everytime to pay back the money but forget about it very conveniently later. No person let alone that that specific one would be able to stand such careless attitude for long. You may pay them as and when they ask for it. But, by that time the much desired distancing would have already occurred. Cherish that.
- Eat with your mouth open
As disgusting it may sound, but it helps too. Doing so would make you extremely repulsive to that person. Whenever you are on an outing with the person, remember to eat shabbily and with your mouth open. You would only discover later how efficient this technique is. Table manners definitely matter. For some violation of those is a big issue. Take note of this.
The need to run to a forest in order to escape that one person would surely be done away with.
