Just a thought that came to me, actually, based on a number of experiences. But, my favorite in disingenuous questions was a woman's the other day at my local hippie haus of coffee. Now, there were many tables available. She, however, asked if I minded if she sat at mine. I was writing and wanted to be alone. I said that in the politest way I could and she sat down anyway. I said, "If you were just going to aggressively sit down anyway, why did you bother to ask?" She got up in a huff and actually told me to "shut my piehole"! Which I found hilarious. Then she later came back to apologize. You can't argue with logic. That is, if you're in possession of any.
