comment What is the difference between 作 and 做?
from my experience, 做 is corresponding to "make" and "do", just like you said: with no remarkable end-product, and 作 is corresponding to "compose(作曲)" "purposefully used as(名词用作动词)" "commit(作恶)" I have to stress, however, in my chinese Pinyin IME, when I type zuo zhun bei, i get "做准备" rather than "作准备"...

comment Measure words for disrespect
"饭桶" is a disrespectful word, and to measure any type of "桶(Bucket)", one never use "位". If your focus is on "measure word", you could use another example like: why "他是一位作家" sounds more respectful than "他是一个作家".

comment “If you say so”: Dismissive agreement
What about this scenario? A: 能不能再加一小时班? 明天绝对不会再让你加班了 (Could you work overtime again for an extra hour? I won't ask you tomorrow, I promise.) B: 既然你已经这么说了,那我还能说什么呢? (If you say so)

comment “If you say so”: Dismissive agreement
BTW(whether my answer is relevant or not): When people speak to me with this feelings, i usually feel disappointed, even frustrated. I sometimes response to my friends in this way, and I tell from their words(after my response) that they also don't like it. :)
