Do you ever ask a question and...

everyone COMPLETELY misses the point of what you are saying and asking!? Half the time people are so busy pushing their opinions on what you should have done before or telling you already stated you cannot do. Or when asking for advice and you list thing you tried and they DIDNT work people tell you to do the things that you've said don't work?

I'm personally very frustrated with asking and getting things back that aren't even my point at all! Does this happen to any of you?

  • Personally whenever I answer something I try to look at what their problem is and find a way to help them, not give them advice that isn't going to help them! Just so sick of it. Like why is it so hard to either give advice that will help someone or just not answer!?

  • I have noticed that with answers. I don't like it either. It is pointless

  • haha, I know what you mean! Recently I asked a question, I stated specifically what I wanted to know... and I got the most vague/non-related answers! Its like sometimes people don't take the time to fully read the question...which I am totally guilty of at times! But, it can be frustrating. Or if you get an answer that is obviously wrong. If you dont know...then dont bother answering!!! LOL. Im sorry you are frustrated :(

  • Yes, I have even asked the people who answered if they even read the question.

  • Yes! Or they didn't completely read the question, so they say something you already asked them not to? Grrr....
