How do you...

How do you deal with a co-worker who insistently ask the same question because she doesn't like the answer? How do you respond when you finally make the point across and all she does is to throw her hands up and say "I'll just wait for so-and-so to respond since this is not supposed to be our responsibility"?? (So why the heck did you ask in the first place???

How do you deal with a co-worker, who is supposed to be your mentor, gives you attitude rather than answers? ("It's in the training material, didn't you read?" - yes I did and no it's not covered in the manual - I wouldn't have bothered to ask if it was!!)

How do you face that same co-worker when she takes credit for your work and when something came up, push all the blame on you??

How do you deal with a parent who stubbornly blame his sore throat and constant coughing on choking and won't take precautionary measures to contain his cold?? And how do you respond to "but no one else at home got sick" when you tell them that you're coming down with a sore throat??? (Was that supposed to make me feel any better?? It's great that you didn't get sick, but that didn't make my sore throat go away...)

How do you deal with parents who favors their son and his wife without regard to how it would make you feel?? (Splurging on brand name purses and clothes is ok for them but splurging on makeup from drugstore brands at warehouse sale is not ok for me?? Wtf??)

How do you not hate your life when you are stuck with the knowledge that you will most likely never have what you want (while seeing everyone around you getting it, with help from either spouse or parents or both) but there is not a thing you can do about it???
