TRIED AND TESTED WAYS TO DEAL WITH VIEWPOINTS YOU DON'T AGREE WITH AND CAN'T BE ARSED ARGUING WITH

I have used all of these at the breakfast table with my dad. I'm just trying to eat my Special K, LET ME LIVE MIKE.
  1. Ask them to explain every point
    Why? But how come? What do you mean? Can you repeat that? Sorry, explain in more detail please?
  2. Yawn every time they say something problematic
  3. Over enthusiastically agree with everything they say
    YES THE EU DOES TAKE ALL OUR MONEY YOU ARE SO RIGHT
  4. Hum the tune of Seal's Kiss From A Rose
    Ba da da da da da da da dada dadada
  5. Furrow your brow and stroke your chin
  6. Look contemplatively into the distance to give the impression you're listening when really you're just thinking about whether to have Nutella or jam on your toast
  7. Excuse yourself to go to the toilet and never return
    Sit on the loo and check Li.st for 20 mins
