    I find it difficult to keep my temper

    when this happens. What I've noticed is 9 times out of 10, the person talking to me this way talks that way to almost everyone. That makes it a bit easier for me to not take it personally. I still hate it. I belong to a club where this girl talks to me as if I'm an idiot. I...
