It really bugs me, specially when I'm in a rush. Whats the worse one you've ever had? Or just a few examples.. My biggest annoyance is when you ask: Me: How do you spell 'insert word' Them: How do you think its spelt? 0.o !!! Not cool!

You are about that sushie93! The right thing that you must do is to ignore it and understand it. I'm sure if you do this thing you will avoid trouble with others.

It bugs me but not always. Because i am one of those who answer with another question, as usuall, i don't do it everytime. And i only answer a question with another question if i have to. For example: If someone ask me "did you know that elephants can jump?" what do ya think is my answer? I may answer "yes, i knew it before." I also may answer it in this way, "why are you asking me that?" anywords can be an answer a question. A question can be answered with another question. But sometimes the answer you're expecting to get is different on what they have said. That's how life goes. But in your case. I see that the answer was too annoying. Take care fellas.

I also experience that in my friends! Were you will ask a question then they will answer you a question again? It's really annoying! Like when you also ask a question like this: Question: where are you going? Answer: are going with me? Like your example? You will feel bad about it when you are not in the mood. At this kind of situation, it starts a fight and trouble with two person. Misunderstanding and joking was really not good in other part. But if they will simply ask a question and answer it. They will lived a very simple way of life were there's no misunderstanding.

This would all depend on the situation. If we are talking about a general conversation, which I presume is what you meant, it could be rather annoying, but on the other hand it could also develop a good conversation - it depends on the circumstances. I have taught teens and adults in study groups for many years and I am known for NOT answering questions. My usual practice is to answer a question with a question - and there is a very good reason for doing so. If I give a teen an answer to their question, they can accept it or reject it. However, if I make them think through the question by asking more questions, they will eventually come to a conclusion of their own - a considered, logically thought out conclusion which will make sense to them and have an impact on them. They have LEARNED something.

Same here, or if someone asks a question that cannot be answered in one particular way...or they expect a certain answer.
