    I just realized how nosy I am. If I hear a neighbour arguing or if I were to see my neighbour telling off their gardener, my windows and doors would be open just so I can hear them lol

    Personally i think all of the above are more offensive than, "none of your business" The above statements read condescending to me.

    (ps, not having a go oj, also not singling you out, just using your comment in general)

    I don't think it's rude at all.

    It really depends on the tone of voice and context in which it is said. It can be very rude and condescending though. I didn't see the other thread so I can't comment on that.

    I don't know who mentioned it, but I do think correcting grammar in a conversation is very rude, unless you're someone's teacher it's not on!

    I don't think the context you used it in in the other thread was rude at all.

    Depends on the situation and tone you use I think, I do say it and I'm sure at times I've said it harshly. I get annoyed easily though at people sticking their noses into my own business.

    Depends on the context. I use it all the time, if I'm talking to DP and a little brother asks what we're talking about I'll say it's none of your beeswax, bro.

    If I ask DP what she's cooking for dinner and she says none of your business I take that to mean it's a surprise.

    If I ask DP where she's going out one night and she says it's none of your business, then I'd be annoyed. But not because of the phrase, because of the secrecy.
