The sales guy selling our software product just said to me, "sometimes it's like talking to a child", because I gave him the same answer to a question he's asked me at least 4 times regarding what we should do logically with some data; at nearly 30 years old I'm pretty bloody offended.

Is it being stubborn not giving him the wrong answer just to appease him?

Anyone else had to put up with abuse from non-developers because they just didn't grasp what to you was pretty damn obvious?
