Y'know what really grinds my gears?

When you ask someone a legitimate question and their response is "Just Google it." As if that should solve all your problems. I can think of few things that are as condescending or as rude as that. And it's not helpful, either. If I hadn't already tried Googling my question, do you think I'd be here asking, genius? Personally, I think the only time "Google it" is a legitimate answer, is if you're an internet technician who works for Google and somebody asks what you do for a living.

Haha. I do agree too. Often the reason we are asking is because we want personalized responses. Like, what has worked for YOU and what would YOU suggest?so i hear you on that one.

When my husband is watching a hockey game I will ask him who is playing and what the score is. He gives me a similar answer - JUST look at the TV for yourself! I tell him I am just trying to show an interest in his interest and have a little interaction with HIM!

The writer of a post should just do a quick search for an answer to a reader's question. If an answer cannot be found, then the writer should let the user know.

I think it has something to do with the writers way of asking it in here like asking them to share their own ideas about your question

I would hand somebody a dictionary or direct them to a library, the heck with Internetting the info all the darn time cause locating the answers in real books is way more fun, right ? oh and hi btw . . .

Or you could just answer the question.

@PeachieMew true but I am the kind of person that would rather lead a person to find their own answer rather than offering one for them and not letting their own brain do the thinking . . .

@enlightenedpsych2 But what if I asked you for your personal opinion on something? You can't find that in a book.
