I think we all know a person like this. If you don't, chances are you may be that person. The question is, what do we do about these parasites who live off of attention? They thrive on controversy centered around themselves, because that allows them to get the desired attention that they want without making it obvious. It looks as if the starter of the controversy is the one who told the stuck up person off, while the stuck up person is just an innocent bystander.
No, the best thing to do is ignore them. It will devastate their ginormous ego, and maybe you will help them realize that conceitedness does nothing for them. Then again, maybe they won't realize this. Maybe they are too caught up in their own little world. However, at least you'll feel better!
