Why do some people like answering a question with a question?

    Why do some people like answering a question with a question?

    My girlfriend seems bit rude most times (though she really doesn't mean it, she's Asian)..

    I ask her a binary question such as, : Have you seen my phone?

    ...she then replies in the most annoying way, she responds with a "why?"...

    is anyone else annoyed by this? or it's just me?

    It is a passive aggressive way to answer without really answering. It is mean but without the direct confrontation of an answer like, "I don't know, go find it yourself".
