    Default "Put up with"

    If you can't stand a person, would you say,

    A. I have to put up with him
    or
    B. I have to put up with it (it=the thing you have to tolerate about him)

    Neither. If you can't stand a person, you cannot put up with him or his idiosyncrasies.

    Oh yes, I suppose that if you couldn't stand a person, but you were a very tolerant fellow, you would try to put up with him and put up with his nose-blowing. So both are OK.
