Usually, the best way to deal with a jerk is to move on with your life and ignore them. Ignoring someone lets the person know in no uncertain terms that you don’t want to deal with them. You are not obligated to talk to everyone, maybe you want to avoid someone you go to school with or an old colleague, if you are attending a social gathering you are not obligated to talk to everyone. You know the old saying if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.
