I'm at an age where I don't get embarrassed, just have a "Senior Moment", and that's allowed. :laugh:

If you are talking about between family,friends,walk away, don’t rise to it, if you are talking about arguments on forums,leave the forum.

It doesn't pay to argue with people. I just say nothing. Everyone has their own

opinion and everyone is an individual. I just consider the source and move along.

Some people like to argue. I don't take it personal. But I don't spend much time

back and forth debating especially with them. if they appear like they are just there

to start a battle. I already know what the deal is and I don't

care to participate.

Don’t push your opinion on others in the argument or debate ....listening and acknowledging that others have the right to their opinion usually goes down well....

When in doubt ... keep mouth shut :D

I always go with the philosophy that people rarely ever disagree with their own opinion. So I go in with knowledge that they will probably defend their position tooth and nail. Since I don't like to argue, I state my position logically if possible and go with that.

It’s going to happen someone will disagree with you .
I will always stand my ground for awhile .
However best not say anything you wouldn’t like said to you .
That way you’ll never be shown up or cause embarrassment.
