I absolutely can’t stand it when people tell me what to do, to the extent that if I’m planning on doing something and then someone tells me to do it, I will sometimes decide not to do it after all.  It’s especially terrible since I’m actually a little bossy myself!  I’m working on it though.

@Cecilia37: hahahaha I’ve been known to do this as well. However, it’s usually just for certain people. So if x asks me to do something I won’t. But if y asks me to do the same thing, I would. Which I guess all comes down to how you approached me about whatever it is.

My mom is very much like this, and I can’t stand it. So I’m with you…I hate when people tell me what to do or are in any way demanding. Don’t volunteer me for things when you haven’t asked if it’s ok first.

Be bossy right back and say that day doesn’t work!

That would piss me off too. Is it so hard to ask nicely instead of just stating what you want and expecting others to go along with it? I’m like Cecilia37, if someone treats me like that I am more likely to NOT do whatever it is just to be stubborn.

I’d send her a message right back saying. “No deal. Wednesday doesn’t work for me, what about ________ instead?”

When people are bossy it IS annoying.. but I know when it comes to school that I hate working with other people on projects because…well.. I like things to be perfect. When forced to work in a group, I tend to hate people that slack off.. Are you the slacker? lol

I HATE when people tell me what to do.  I get all defensive, b*tchy and tend to not listen.  So that comment would TOTALLY annoy me.  I much prefer to be asked, not told and take it much better.

I know she could have worded it a little differently asking if you were available during your break instead of declaring that you had to work on the project during that time. Yes that would bother me too!
