    I am annoyed with people most of all my father who I asked questions to do with finance he works in the finance industry and he doesn't want to answer them.He doesn't understand how I feel I just can't stand him because when I want to know something I want to I do not care whether this thing is relevant to my life if I want to know then I want to know.

    It could be that, when he was younger, he was once expected to work things out for himself without the need for reliance on others. As such, he might think that trying to get you to work the same way is the "right" thing to do.

    I might be completely wrong, but on the off-chance that I'm right, you can't get pissy with him for being a product of his environment. So yeah, sitting down with him and hashing it out is the best course of action here.

    Yeah totally, I agree with you... but wasn't it Sun Tzu who said "know your enemy"? If you don't know why your father is acting the way he is, how can you try to convince him that he's in the wrong?

    Talk it out with him dude, you'll be doing yourself and your relationship with him no favours by simply getting angry over it. Chill your beans and have a chinwag with him (though it wouldn't hurt to make sure he's in a good mood before doing so ).
