Include the details: Let us know what happened and who was involved.
Questions work best with a specific example. Even if you're trying to get general guidance on how to act in a general situation, a description of this situation and how you usually behave will help narrow down answers to be as helpful as possible to that general situation.
Asking how to handle a family fight at christmas dinner may be an okay question, but we need to know what the fight was about (in general terms), how it started, who started it, and what happened after.
Who got involved? How you interact with a spouse vs coworker vs employee is vastly different, so please let us know the kind of relationship we need to take into account. If these people have a certain way of reacting to situations that you'd like us to take into account when answering, please mention it. For example, if you don't want to offend people, please let us know why you think they're likely to be offended.
Too much detail can deter users from reading your post, so try to limit details to exactly the problem you want solved. If Bob had nothing to do with what happened except being at the christmas dinner table, please don't give us his entire life history. If we feel we need information on Bob to answer the question, we can always ask for it in comments.
