    I say ask him once if he’s okay or if he wants to speak on what’s bothering him. If he says, “Nothing” take his word for it and treat him as if “nothing” is wrong. If he still gives you attitude, tell him you refuse to be mistreated and that you have nothing else to say to him until he can get on that “act right” or until he chooses to behave like an adult an verbalize his problem. That always works for me.
    I can’t stand an over emotional moody dude.
