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!

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.
