Well, if they were violent to me I'd defend myself, but if they just yelled at me or cursed or whatever, I'd probably say "Sorry to bother you," or say nothing and just walk away.
I think this discussion is interesting. There's such a difference between doing something to get a certain reaction and response, and doing something because you simple want to or are that way. Not that I'm naive, but it kinda boggles my mind that someone would actually not want to be nice ever... just because it's inside them to be so.
Speaking to the general topic of conformity. It seems that anyone who tries to be something other than just what they are is conforming to the culture or fakery and subterfuge that goes on in almost every social situation.
Best way to be a non-conformist? Just be yourself.
