How to deal with rude people:
Don’t take it personally
When someone is rude to you, especially when they are making personal comments about you, it is normal if it makes you upset. But you can choose how you react. Take the power of their rudeness by choosing to treat it as their problem, not your problem.
Try finding out the reason
People have reasons for being rude. Maybe they have had a bad day, or they’re in a rush and think there is no time for manners or they do not even realize how rude they’ve been. You would not know until you ask. So, it is better to directly ask them calmly and the answer or explanation might surprise you.
Offer them help
While some rudeness is simply a result of bad manners. But often, a person who is rude to you is because they are feeling frustrated about something or something is disturbing their inner peace badly and if it is in your power to solve their problem, you may see them changing from rudeness to gratitude in seconds.

Consider rudeness a habit
Some people are rude simply because they are rude to everyone. Once rudeness becomes a habit, it can be challenging to bounce off even if they desire to behave better. Regular rudeness should never be taken personally, it’s just a habit that is hard to break.
Do not impose a change
You can not make someone polite if they want to be rude. Attempting to push a change in their behavior will usually make them behave more destructively rather than better. Sometimes it is the best option is to accept that their rudeness is not your fault and let them be on their own.
Deal rudeness with kindness
Do not let rudeness make you react in the same way. The best way to deal with rude behavior is to stay warm and helpful, give another person a chance to calm down, and modify their behavior to match yours.
Drop it and walk away
Rudeness is unbearable, but moving away from the situation is the fastest way to avoid more rude behavior from the same person. Walk away, is the best possible thing you can do to preserve your peace of mind.
Be factual and analyze the rudeness
If someone was rude to you. Recall what did they say? Was there any meaning in it? If you view the situation as fact, you will realize that most rudeness is pointless, so you can happily ignore it.
Avoid joining them
Often people feel like yelling at rude people. But I would suggest, Don’t. Joining the drama will only add fuel to the negative situation. Keep your pride intact by not letting the rude behavior of others provoke you into a tantrum of your own.
