For some guys, a girl being feisty, whether her anger is just to keep him away or legitimate is a turn-on. Don't ask why because I don't know. If he did say it to calm you down, that's up to you to decide how you feel about it. Just me, but I probably wouldn't say that.
Do you speak a foreign language by any chance and use it when you get mad? I don't know about cute, but its pretty sexy. Anyway, I would be offended...you need to improve your anger skills. Learn to breathe fire, I guarantee you he won't find that cute...Oh, you think I didn't cook your steak well enough, well here, let me try again FUUUUUUFHHHHHHH. "Honey, my hair is gone." "Oh, well maybe you should of thought about that before when you said I was cute when I get angry!"
