Default Step Back

"Don't let his actions affect your behavior. If you do, you become his puppet. You lose."

"But, I have to work with him, and he hates me."

"It doesn't matter. Step back."

"Step back?"

"Yeah, what I mean is don't get too close to him."

"But, I told you-- I work with him!"

"Look, from what you told me about him obviously he's nutty."

"Oh, I know that."

"So just know that he's clearly nuts, as clear as you see your own hand. Detach yourself from him or else he'll suck you into his warped world, and then you won't be able to see shit."

"So, I should ignore him. Is that what you're saying?"

"Yeah. Just call him what he is--a nutjob! Case closed. Don't try to analyze what goes on in his head. Keep waiting your tables. Block him out. He's freaking nuts. You needn't know anymore."

"I will try that."

" Yeah. Do it. The sooner the better. Step back--far back!"
