Mikiex#3114 hmm Japanese is strange... I would say,
うわぁ、たかびー(高飛車)な発言!peremptory manner
bamboo4I don't think its 高飛車. I edited it, but post your comment if you don't like it. 
MikiIs it anything to do with my preference? If the Japanese sounds correct, I don't mind. I think that generally males use the expression you put.
I'd rather feel むかつく or 頭にくる if I were told in that way by someone not close. I am very sensitive as you don't know. I don't mean you are not sensitive. :P
bamboo4I would feel the same way, if I was told お礼 次第 では、手伝ってあげないものでもないね。 I misunderstood your 高飛車 comment. My bad.
