Think nothing of it!

You say "hoping for some assistance" but what you were asking is someone to do the thing for you, not assist you with it.

You say "people like you to be patronizing" as if it were a bad thing.

You say "you could lend a hand" as if I've not, which I have. I am glad to help, I just believe that it is a disservice to you to do it for you, rather than helping you learn by answering your specific questions as you work through your problem.

You say your name is Pauline, but it is probably Paul. You figured you'd get a better response with Pauline, eh?

Congtatulations on losing the capslock. If you can also drop the profranity, you can begin to garner some respect.
