Ways to irritate someone without realising it

Many years ago, I read on a friend’s blog that she gets really irritated with people who asks “Are you sure?” right after she answers their question. Her problem: why bother asking in the first place if you don’t believe it?

Lately I have a problem with someone telling me “that’s not very helpful”, or worse–“that’s not helpful at all”–when you’ve actually taken time and effort to help them after they ask for it.

Sometimes we get too comfortable doing or saying things out of habit that we seldom think twice before we say something.
