24. If people are rude enough to start ranting RW bullshit at me in a random situation

I ask them to stop. If they don't stop, I ask them who told them stupid things like that.

It wrong foots them, puts the blame on someone else (which is where it belongs, after all). They often have to reboot, during wich time I can change my seat in the hope of finding someone sane or at least silent.

Condolences, BTW. Tennessee has even more crazy fundagelical preachers than Texas does.
