| | Answering Questions Rudely?
My biggest issue with my husband is that he sometimes responds rudely to questions I ask him. By rudely I mean that he does not really answer my questions with a straight forward "yes/no, because..." statement. He tends to respond by saying things like, "Why?" (meaning "why do you ask?", which is a fine question to ask back, however I never realize he is asking this because his tone makes it sound like he is saying, "There is no reason to./ Why would I want to do that?"), or he will say something like, "Of course I want that one..why would I want the other one?".
When he responds in these kinds of ways to me I take offense because he is sounding like he is saying to me that I asked a silly question that had an obvious answer. The thing that gets me is that if I asked the question, then I didn't know the "obvious" answer, so why doesn't he just respond calmly, less rudely, and more straight forwardly? I think it is just his personality but I really clash with this kind of communicating. Has anyone else experienced this?
