Don’t be afraid to tell someone that you are offended as it will help people avoid offending you in the future. You may raise your voice to show that you are offended, but try to avoid yelling as it can make things worse. Explain why you were offended directly and calmly in hopes that the offender gets the idea and does not offend you again in the future. If the offense has been done before, be more firm in explaining yourself so you can be taken seriously.
