If I were in her shoes, just asking a question and get replied to like that I'd start second guessing my questions to ask. I never want my kids to be afraid to ask me a question.

Hmmm, I can tell by the way you're describing her that you are feeling a bit touchy about her attitude...however, I wouldn't let it get to you too much.
She may just be trying to show you how smart she is, in that typical pre-teen fashion. LOL

Re: Would you think this is rude?

I voted "other". I would say that if her tone were snotty, it would be considered rude.

We as a family go back and forth with banter A LOT, sometimes even when we aren't all in a playful, joking mood....we know how to push eachother's buttons and we do it all the time! We're one of "those families." Kinda like the family in "The Family Stone" movie (if you've seen it!). Lots of teasing by every member of the house. The only time it becomes a problem is if someone is already in a sour mood and the rest of us don't know it! I might have been annoyed with a comment like that if I was already in a rotten mood, but she might have been being playful and didn't realize you weren't up for playfulness. She most likely wasn't trying to be rude. All this being said, it would deemed as rude if her tone were snotty and hateful.

I used to do that to my mom, and it pissed her off SO bad.

I might be a little annoyed, depending on her tone & attitude, but I don't see it as rude.
