Who did you talk to to get on the tryout list?  Maybe they'd like a 
few more willing subjects?

I've often wondered that too...  and I've decided that it can be a 
number of things:

1 - ignorance
2 - arrogance or a frustrated control freak
3 - attempts to help 
4 - lack of empathy
5 - over supply of empathy.

I've decided it is best to assume that they react out of compassion 
and gently correct them in the same tone of voice you'd use to 
correct a young, cute child who accidentally managed to pour purple 
Kool-Aid (you know - the stuff that leaves permanent stains)  on the 
insurance salesman who wouldn't leave your front door.  Firmly, 
quickly, gently and with a sense of humor...
