The "explaining bean dip" thread reminded me of this.
How do you handle it when someone bean dips you, but it IS actually a topic that needs to be talked about, or is relevant to you, or you genuinely want to call someone on their behaviour?
For example, if you want to discuss an important relationship issue with your significant other, or call someone on a snarky comment that was totally uncalled for, or let someone know something they said hurt you? And the only response you can get out of them is a bean-dip answer?
What's an e-hell approved way of saying, "No, you can't get away with bean-dipping me; I want to discuss this."
