When should you express your disagreement versus ignoring the person?
I have a flat mate who is very bossy. He was telling me not to use the back door as it's only used for emergencies. He's not the landlord and he says these sorts of things often. I ignore him. I've tried talking with him before but it goes nowhere.
I was speaking with a friend who was complaining someone in a club he was part of was being bossy and telling people what to do. I told my friend just don't do what he's telling you to. My friend replied it would come off as passive aggressive and he cares about the club and respects the person even though he was being bossy. He rather argue with him.
So when is it a good idea to speak up and say you disagree with something as opposed to just ignoring it? (I ask this question assuming it's not work related and no money is involved)
