    Ignore, in both scenarios. I'd probably GTFO in the first one, though, since crazies in the streets can be potentially violent. In the second, I'd probably just drive as far away from them as possible. Don't need anyone pulling a gun on me or otherwise damaging my car.

    Ignore them run away, possibly squeaking and flapping my arms in terror.

    Actually, depending on the day, I might get into a little spat with the asshat in the car. Most of the time, though, I'd probably ignore.

    I'll naturally assume it wasn't directed at me, but if there's no denying it, I'll definitely laugh at the fools over-reaction, say "thanks a lot", and blow a kiss for the road.

    Edit: I just noticed this thread is in the SP forum. Details. :\

    Depends on my mood. Lately I showed the middle finger and made an angry face. It worked - the insulter was startled because before people ran away.

    Best answer so far.

    I think what Senza was *trying* to say - is that they would take the "I'm crazier than you" approach thereby scaring the person yelling and neuralizing any potenial threat.

    Right, Senza? Right?

    Keep walking. Say nothing. Pretend I didn't hear. Stare at the pavement.

    Actually, that's what I do when ANYONE says stuff to me in public. Not just an insult.

    I think the nuances of ignoring people are important. If the people are actually aggresive and possibly dangerous, it's important not to look like a target unless they want to circle around again. In which case eye contact but no facial response is good enough not to look like prey, but not goading enough to take it as a challenge.

    Yeah, that's why you neither provoke them nor flail around and panic. If it seems like you're going somewhere else with purpose while blatantly ignoring them, then they assume that you have some sort of plan/are currently concocting a plan, and that makes you a less desirable target.

    If you give the impression of having some level of wherewithal, you are less likely to get attacked.

    I think my only respose would be fuck you. Unless they tried to attack me physically, pretty straightforward. Ive incountrered some douche bags who appear to be on drugs the best best is to walk away, unless there is some form of physical threat. A good example would be this one time when a big dog was loose on my street as i was walking home. I was actually walking in his direction but on the other side of the road. I heard him growling but I knew If i ran he would chase after me so I simply walked at the same pace without making eye contact and the dog just ignored me.
