    I dislike it when someone answers a question with a question.

    I know this will prompt people to post a response that is a question and I accept this.

    Today I was out at a store and I asked a Staff member where something was and she asked what I wanted to use it for.

    I repeated the question and she told me where it was and I went and got it.

    I then continued shopping.

    I asked a but later about a special they had on and got the response of, how would I like to combine it with other specials?

    I stared at her, then walked out of the store leaving a full grocery cart.

    I went to another store to do my shopping.

    This is actually a game we used to play when I was younger, called 'Questions'

    iirc it comes from some Shakespeare spinoff where Rosencratz and Guildenstein (sp?) are stuck on some bridge trying to pass the time

    One person starts with a question, and the other has to respond with a question and try to have a meaningful dialogue until someone stumbles or screws up. There are rules like you can't repeat the same question, and you can't take more than 2 seconds or whatever to reply. If someone violates a rule you declare it and score your points.

    You score like tennis, dueces and advantages etc

    Its quite a mental challenge, and much more difficult than it seems. Only really sharp and smart folk can do it well.

    I was terrible at it, lol

    Sounds like you were having a slightly bad day before you went to the store. This should go in one ear and out the other while going on with your day.

    I will do this too; it's like walking away from a fight.
    I react differently all the time, because I'm caught off guard and infuriated by
    what I see as stupidity or administrative in nature. Like I am being challenged.

    I've had to work on this for a long time, probably too long and it's likely a pride issue.
    I do not know why their brain is constructed in this manner.
    What I do know is I'm capable of taking it in any direction and being kind is probably the most beneficial to us both in the long and short.

    'You know that's a great question, unfortunately I'm short on time'

    I think a lot of people have unrealistic expectations of others. If smart college grads were all these places hired, people would be complaining about the price of the products. Think about it. Just let it go.

    I'm saying complaining about people making close to minimum wage is expecting a lot. If you want smart experienced people it will cost you then you need to raise your prices. Now I'll fuck off.

    If you are so retarded that you can't understand the regular and natural flow of conversation and comprehend it, then I have better things to do than talk with you.

    Usually I don't care and just walk away from people like this.

    Today I just left the environment.

    I am having a great day, and I want to keep it going.
