It just happened to me again. I asked someone a question, and I was given the answer preceeded by the word "obviously."
Surely to God if it were obvious I wouldn't be asking the question. I find the use of this word offensive and insulting. By the way, the answer was not obvious at all, but even if it were I find it a rude way to reply.
To add insult to injury, the person who "obviously-ed" me is an idiot who asks me the same questions over and over again. She is proud of her stupidity when it comes to numbers and/or computers. "Oh, I can't do math, tee hee hee". "What's a desktop???" you get the idea.
I ended up close to raising my voice to her as she stomped out of my office. Anybody got any suggestions? She is an easily offended thing who demands perfect behaviour from other people while acting like a boor herself. I once ended up being given the "silent treatment" for nearly 6 months because - well, I'm not sure really, but I must have breached her code of behaviour somehow.
I feel better for venting a little. Thanks for listening.
