How to deal with rudeness

I find the slang responses “really” and " ya think" to be quit rude. Any advise how to respond charitably?

Pray that you yourself are able to let such things go and know that others are not trying to be rude to you by using such expressions.

Forgiveness. Prayer. In that order.

Well, yeah, “ya think” is usually meant to reprimand someone for stating the obvious. It’s best to laugh it off. Don’t let it get to you, and you can turn it into a joke by saying, “Oh yeah, duh…” or “Captain Obvious strikes again!” or “Captain Obvious to the rescue!” and then try and avoid saying obvious things.

I think you are overly sensitive.
