I think it depends on the person and where they are at. Happier people don't seem to mind as much and those who are not so much so.
I have always wondered if somehow the person felt they were being made wrong somehow - or may be scared or nervous at possibly not knowing the answer!
because some don't make sence. some are chopped short and you don't have a clue what they are asking.and some braineax want to show off what they know educated pomus *****
I can only speak for myself. I don't intentionally set out to irritate people, but I usually opt for the funny response, versus the serious one and sometimes people take that as insulting or offensive.
DAMN THIS QUESTION IRRITATES ME!!!!!!!!
J/K --- I believe it is not the question that causes irritation within someone - it is something within the individual that causes it. Since we are all different, it is a hard thing to define.
It depends on the question. "Are you done yet?" Usually irritates me.
I can't speak for anyone else, but this particular question has me seeing red. I'm furious! Just furious, I tell ya!
What exactly are you insinuating??
