The 5 Most Annoying Things to Say During an Argument

As toxic as some internet sites and forums can be these days, there's one thing you can learn from them: how not to argue your point. If you can look at what's happening in a particular argument, you can see what might be working and what's not helping at all. But since it's so difficult for us to remain calm and non-opinionated long enough to study such things, Jacob Andrews did it for us. One example of "you're not helping" is when someone tells another to calm down.
