Things that annoy me

When asked a question by a prof that starts with "What do you think...", answering "Well, he would say," or "The readings would indicate..."

If the prof wanted you to regurgitate out of the readings, he would've asked. If he wanted your opinion, he would've asked. Substituting the readings for your opinion is just annoying and requires the prof to restate the question hoping your dumb ass will understand it the second time around.
