Know It All

I don't think it is good form for someone to come up to me and say, "That is not how to do that," whatever it is that I am doing.  "Let me show you how to do that," is just as bad.  Two things happen, neither of which is productive.  First, I hate the person, not with a hateful hate, just a run of the mill, "you irritate me" hate.  Second, I never do it the way that person showed me, because, well,  the person irritates me.  I prefer to say, "I have found that doing this way, works for me."  This does not make the other person feel like a ninny, and allows their way of doing something to be in the realm of possibility.  No one is made to feel stupid.  I have found it so.
