Response to freeplessinseattle (Original post)

5. The two best ways to disarm someone, from my experience,

is to look them straight in the eye with either an overly sympathetic 'Oh, you poor dear -- you must have had a bad night' comment or 'OMG, you're sooo funny -- you crack me up' followed by hysterical laughter. Both are passive aggressive, true, and she'll probably know it. But neither are offensive in any way.
