There are just some people in the world that aren't worth the time. It reminds me of something I saw a long time ago and pretty sure have posted here before. 13 Rules for Dealing with a Sociopath: 1. Accept that some people literally have no conscience. 2. In a contest between your instincts and what is implied by the role a person has taken on–educator, doctor, leader, animal lover, humanist, parent–go with your instincts. 3. When considering a new relationship of any kind, practice the Rules of Threes regarding the claims and promises a person makes, and the responsibilities he or she has. Make the Rule of Threes your personal policy. 4. Question authority. 5. Suspect flattery. 6. If necessary, redefine your concept of respect. 7. Do not join the game. 8. The best way to protect yourself from a sociopath is to avoid him, to refuse any kind of contact or communication. 9. Question your tendency to pity too easily. 10. Don’t try to redeem the unredeemable. 11. Never agree, out of pity or far any other reason, to help a sociopath conceal his/her true nature. 12. Defend your psyche. 13. The best revenge is living well. Its not bad advice IMO and FWIW.
