Bug them right back.

True story: I once had a manager who was so much more of a people person than I will ever be and she managed to get the PMs to slow down and let us work by taking every thing we said about the project back to them in friendly, yet annoying, terms.

Once they got a taste of their own medicine, and she pointed out to them that's what they were doing to us, they suddenly stopped being jerks.

    Sometimes I wish I could manage friendly, but annoying, when I want to be (and only when I want to be).
