Ignorance is not intent.
Asking to learn is not affront.
Offended is not entitled.

This vocabulary lesson brought to you courtesy of a few folks.
  • Absolutely you would. I would also think that you'd be within your rights to be irked if that was the same question you got over and over again from people who didn't have enough basic respect for you to do a little basic research before barging in and demanding information. And even with a willing teacher one might be better served by observing anyway. I've found that I feel like I catch more, learn more when I start by listening. By participating in a system, you alter it.
    • I don't have a viewpoint that's too divorced from the mythological 'neutral' viewpoint of western civ- at least, not if one's just going off of outward appearances- so I do not get as many questions of the 'be patient with my dumb butt' variety as I'd imagine you do. I can certainly see getting frustrated with people behaving as if you're there to educate 'em, though- but I tend to value my civility higher than their dumbness.
