  • nosy people, what to do with them

    i can't 'avoid' people, that's impractical

    i can't also be rude, and say mind your bussiness.

    so what do you do with them

      :salams

      you elminated both of my suggestions ,

      avoding them isnt that impratcical because your just filtering out the specific ones who are always meddling in your life

      i know some people dont realize their being nosey so you can just kindly inform them ..how much you hate it
      ... " im sure its not your intention but i dont like when you ask me about my private life, im sorry if what im saying offends you, but please stop asking me about -----(fill in the blank)


      if they still went at it ..id probably give the most ever -so- polite -sarcastic smile and tell them to beat it..but thats just moi

        Just tell them it's a private matter and you'd rather not discuss.
        Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

        "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
        - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

          or change the subject when they ask you something personal. They will get the message.

          (some people are so nosy they still don't get the message , so thats when you need to be upfront.

            dont tell them anything personal, dont answer their questions when they start to pry into your life.
            I know some people can be quite forceful, some just dont get the message even when you tell them its none of their business. I said that to someone and got the reply, "Oh dont worry I can keep a secret." So I smiled and said, "Would you like some tea?"

            Avoiding isn't such a bad thing, you can always be too busy for a chat, that works well. Or you have a sore throat today, dont feel well. There is the silent treatment as well/Ignoring them. That works well.
            Allah is compassionate and He loves compassion in all things. [Hadith]

                    when you know someone is of nosy nature...next time you are around them...just randomly bring about a subject where you want to know more about a person...and then correct yourself by saying "oh nvm...I shouldnt be nosy...I hate it when people dont get the hint to stay out of my business and here im doing the same thing..silly me..I hate nosiness."

                    so that nosy person will hear this monologue and think "err .he he..(uncomfortable laugh)...yeah me..too...darn those nosy people".

                    repeat process as many times as you like.

                      1.mumble. when they ask for clarification mumble again. when they ask again then mumble again. by the third time they will be too embarassed to ask and will pretend they heard.

                      2. failing that just start talking around the general topic but nowt specific. if their thick they won't realise till later that you didn't answer the question; if their intelligent they will realise but again perhaps be embarassed to ask again. and if they do ask again do the same thing. they'll probably think your slow and dont understand what the question is but we can't please every one.

                      3. finally and my favourite, act like never heard the question or do that thing you do when someone asks you something and you don't know what they said but you're too embarassed to ask them to repeat . . . ie
                      Bob: So how'z the new job going? Is Bill still the ksdhjfjasjfh he always was?
                      Jim: *smiles* I know. *smiles*
                      Rajab is a month of cultivation, Shaban is month of irrigating the fields, and the month of Ramadhan is a month of reaping and harvesting.”

                          It's something that isn't there business, simply say 'I don't really feel comfortable discussing that at the moment...' .

                          It's not exceptionally rude, but they'll also feel less inclined to be nosy next time round.

                            This.

                            its amazing HOW nosy people can be, its quite mind boggling. i would love to just say mind your own you nosy so and so but would rather not be rude so yes.
