I have a friend who asks me "Are you okay?" constantly and it's driving me freaking NUTS.
We go over a speed bump and I make a soft grunt (because I HATE speedbumps and they're even worse when my neck is bothering me or I have a headache) and he asks every time "Are you okay?"
I'm not as fit as he is, and whenever I can't keep up with him climbing stairs, "Are you okay?"
Basically, any time I make the slightest noise (A barely audible grunt when shifting positions in a chair, stretching out a stiff body part, anything really), he's right on it, asking "Are you okay?" like he thinks I'm falling apart or something.
He does this way too often and it's gotten downright annoying. Like I said, it doesn't take much- the faintest grunt or even a less than happy facial expression will trigger the dreaded question.
How can I tell him to seriously dial back all these "Are you okays"?
