I think that people could get better responses from others that they are talking to if they just wouldn’t use the “Bite Me Approach”.
The Bite Me Approach involves:
1. Talking down to the person you are talking to.
When someone says, “You don’t sound like you know much about this area do you…” That to me is a clue that they are using the Bite Me Approach.
2. Telling someone repeatedly how to do something that they already know how to do because you haven’t listened to them say to you that they already know how to do it.
When someone says, “I will show you how to do a task” after you have repeatedly told them you know how to do the task in question…that is using the Bite Me Approach.
3. Tailgating a car that is doing the suggested speed limit or a little more.
Nothing gets my goat more than being tailgated when I am doing the speed limit or maybe even a little over. I don’t care if you want to pass me (when it is allowed and safe to do so), I don’t care if you are late for work (or wherever it is that you are going…not my problem), I don’t even care if your kid is late for school…stay off my a$% when I am driving the speed for the area. This is especially true as well when you are driving down my road and I have pulled out of my driveway…don’t be tailgating me because you think you have the right to. (Rant Over) This is using the Bite Me Approach
These are just a few of Bite Me Approaches that I have seen people use. Let it be known that when I experience any of these at any given time you have opened yourself up to me Bite Me response and it is your own fault…~dbratt
