comment What is the origin of the idiom “like pulling teeth”?
This is probably an idiom that is too easily constructed to have an origin that can be pinpointed. It has likely been around since shortly after the invention of dentistry. It simply draws an analogy with something that everyone agrees is painful.

comment Telling someone that they are rude
I don't think what you said is rude at all; in fact, that's probably the nicest way you could have put it.
