Yes, I'd feel patronised if someone asked if I needed help in choosing some strings. I was quite specific in regards to asking for help for a relatively menial matter. We are all capable of asking for help if we need it, I cannot understand why people complain when no one approaches as all they need do is politely ask for help themselves.
As much as one person moans for not being asked if they need help, someone else moans at being hassled and asked if they need help.
