Oh my, I do this all the time. Haha, I don't usually answer questions, but when I do, this is basically what I do:
Say, for example, the question is, "My best friend stopped talking to me after a small fight. What do I do now?"
And this is my answer: Well, you have to think to yourself: have you made the effort to make mends with her or have you done nothing so far? If you have made the effort, then maybe it's time to find a new best friend. If you haven't, well, now's the time. You need to try to talk to her so you two can settle your differences. There's no point in ruining a friendship over a small argument if it can be resolved through a conversation. So, here's what you do: find a time to talk to her, tell her how you feel, see what she has to say and go from there. Make sure you both understand the other's side of the argument and then figure out if the friendship is worth hanging onto.
BUT I always end the answer with:
"I hope this helps and good luck! :)"
Sometimes, depending on the person, I'll put a heart (<3), but only when I'm A) in a really good mood, B) the person seems like they need some "love" or C) I did it without realizing it. Haha, but no matter what, I always say "I hope this helps" (unless it's for your questions because I always feel like I'm just having a conversation with you, so it's less professional) because I want the person to know that I really do care how things turn out for them. Maybe I just want a little credit, but I don't know, I just hate it when I get answers that have no heart in them. I want to know that my answerer actually cares about my situation so I make sure that the questioner knows that I care for them when I answer their questions.
Since it bothers you, though, I'll just make the extra effort to end all of my answers to your questions with "I hope this helps."
Now, the things that bother me:
-Am I pretty? Rate me from 1-10...?
I mean, really, do you need strangers to tell you that you're pretty in order to feel it? If you have a low self-esteem, well, that's one thing, but asking strangers won't do you any good. Besides, it's not exactly the safest thing to do...
-I WILL GIVE TWO POINTS TO ALL ANSWERERS AND TEN POINTS TO THE BEST!
No duh, that's kind of how Yahoo Answers works... thanks for the enlightenment.
-You know what I mean?
This is the tenth time you've asked me in the last five minutes. I may be slow, I'll give you that one, but I'm not an idiot. If I look confused to you, well, that's just my irritated face. You should know that expression by now... bleh.
Hm, those are all the phrases that I can think of that bother me, but there's a ton of things that bother me. Yes, you are getting my list:
-When people add unnecessary letters to words (summmmmmmmmmmer breakkkkkkkkkkkkkk)
-When people wonder if they are pregnant and then ask strangers on the internet to be their pregnancy test (I don't even need to explain this one...)
-When people make assumptions (we've all heard it: when you assume, you make an a** of you and me)
-When people say things like, "I know what you're saying BUT..." and then they completely bash everything you just said
-When animals force you into petting them (they won't leave you alone... no matter how many times you throw pillows at them. Haha, maybe this is just the way my cats are)
-When people make bad "woman" jokes and "your mother" jokes (haha, I love the good ones, but sometimes, some are just awful)
-When people talk too much about themselves (I'm guilty of this one...)
-Bad days (from reading my answer, you'd think that I would have had the worst day ever, but actually, I had a great day)
Yep, I talk too much, but you know, I like questions that let me rant. More, please.
I HOPE THIS HELPS, G. :) (no heart for you)
