5 Polite Phrases That Will Disarm Rude People Instantly:

#1. “Thank you”

Saying “thank you” might sound like a simple gesture, but you will be surprised to find that it can quickly change the course of the conversation. “Thank you” is a phrase we often use to show appreciation, if you say it to someone who is being rude to you, it can show them that you’re not angry. Rude people enjoy when others get angry and become impolite back. If you bite your tongue and remain polite, it means that you acknowledge the person’s rudeness, and have chosen not to let their behaviour affect you.

#2. “You’re right”

Most people have a hard time accepting someone else’s point of view. If there happens to be some truth in what the person is saying use this phrase and it will stop the person in their tracks. The conversation will be cut short and this means that there is less chance of the discussion developing into the argument.

#3. “You’re hurting my feelings”

If you want to get through to the person, you might need to explain to them that they are hurting you. Sometimes this is the best way to let them know that you don’t like what they are saying and that it offends you. In some instances, they may not know how their words are affecting you, so if you speak up they may be able to correct their behaviour and apologise. Using this phrase could also protect you from inappropriate and rude remarks in the future.

#4. “I think we should stop this conversation now”

Unfortunately, rude people don’t always care who they are hurting. If you make your feelings to them known and it doesn’t stop them, this phrase will. Using this phrase will signal to them that you no longer appreciate the conversation and that you don’t want to tolerate their rude behaviour. Hopefully, the other person will think twice about saying something offensive next time.

#5. “You always have something negative to say, don’t you?”

This phrase can also help the other person to reassess their behaviour and think about the words that are coming out of their mouth. By drawing attention to the fact that they often have a negative response, you are highlighting their negative behaviour and this may help them to reconsider what they say in the future.

Journey across Canada by train.

A young lady sat in a train. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags. 

The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.

The young lady responded with a smile: 

“It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop.”

This response deserves to be written in golden letters:

“It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”

If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart?

Be calm, the journey is so short.

Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? 

Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.

Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short. 

No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. Our journey together is so short. 

Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness. 

If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness. 
After all, our journey together is so short!

Merry Christmas!! Happy New Years!! ~~~~~~reBlogger: 161226tko~~~~~~

Happy Monday: The woman who makes me smile each day:
In 2009 I was working in Norway. On my way back from home I met  a young woman at the airport in Nairobi. She was returning to Uganda from a conference and i was going back to Norway. We only had an hour chat then. But it was a sweet chat; we continued to talk online after that .
I had been with this girl in the same school but I was in a level and she was in O level. As  we  continued to chat  I realized that  my heart  was  starting to really warm up for her . But I  never mentioned anything. My friends  in Norway had  warned me that  Ugandan  girls loved  money  and once they knew that you worked  abroad they would think you have a lot of money .
The more I talked to this girl, the more I found my work in Norway become boring. The excitement was in Uganda. I  packed my bags to return to Uganda. My plan was to get to know her better and try out this relationship. But I did not tell him she was the reason why I returned.  I did not want her to know she had already finished me.  I said to myself  if this girl can be patient and wait for me a little I was going to propose to her.
Meanwhile I started looking for a job here at home. And this girl was the most supportive. She ran around making applications for me.  I was so touched which ever job she saw she applied for me.  Finally in the 5th month I got  a  government job  , but it was to take  six months before  I got my first  salary .  I had used all my savings for different things and now these girls started giving me transport   to go to work. In the evening we would meet up and walk together on the Kampala streets going to take taxis. Now I could not hide it any more. I was in love and it felt gooood.  I said  I wanted to to see her parents  and she took me there  to see them . I loved her  family  . They are good caring people. I married this woman  and it was the best decision I made. MT this woman makes me so happy. My wife has continued to be very supportive of me.  She is honest, hardworking, very straight .She is good hearted, always wants to see others succeed. She is a risk taker. She is an entrepreneur I am proud to say that most   business ventures we have taken as a family has been because of my wife. She has encouraged me to take financial risks. 
We don’t have a joint account but we always agree on what we are going to do. All our assets have to be registered in both our names.  I like spoiling her with gifts, for instance i can book her into a spa for a weekend just to relax and then i stay with the baby. I will buy for her gadgets since am technology crazy. I even taught her how to drive and trust me it’s the hardest thing i have ever had to do coz it can test your patience to the limit. I like my wife’s   family it is very supportive. My father in-law is very supportive of us. Even when we have issues he counsels in an biased way. I love and respect him.
When we were expecting for the first time I was so excited. First of all i was too excited to be expecting my first baby. I think i was more pregnant than she was. I went with her for all the 16 antenatal visits and at times we would sit together for three hours in the queue since our doctor was a busy one
I would return home and cook dinner since we had no maid,
i would take along on my weekend errands just to make sure she doesn’t stay home alone and get a problem when am not around  i did everything possible to ensure she was comfortable.
I  was with her in the labour ward from 7.00am to 9.15pm when she gave birth. One thing I really like about her is that she lets me be, as in if i want to be with my friends, its very ok, if i want to watch football she will let me do that. She basically lets me be Timothy. Because of this freedom she gives me, i also try not to abuse it. It’s very easy to be happy at home if you are happy with yourself. I support my wife through her  dreams. When she is studying, i stay up and discuss with her. she is doing a masters. That way she feels that am in full support of what she is doing. those small things go along way. Young couples are not patient, i advise them to be patient. Dont look for the finished good coz you dont know what it takes to get it to being finished. I  also  keep good company. The friends you keep around you also matter, for me if you can’t live up ton my values then I really can’t be your friend. For example I can’t relate with you if I know you beat your wife or those who are  cheating . Avoid bad company and adopt  good company if you want to  to keep your marriage  as a man .  MY wife  has made me  a better person and  I really treasure her relationship
