Tone matters a lot. If you come across as sarcastic then they’re just gonna get more mad. Your humility must be legitimate. (Humility as in humble, not humility as in humiliation)


From my experience the anger comes from a question that is not difficult to answer. Bring on the hard questions all day! But if you can answer the question yourself in less than a minute by googling it then don’t waste my time.


I get the same questions everyday from a certain person. Which really means “do this so I don’t have to”. Maybe that’s what explaining the anger..
