What does it mean that "if anyone loudly blesses their neighbor in the morning, it will be taken as a curse"?


Proverbs 27:14

NKJV - 14 He who blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, It will be counted a curse to him.

Just shooting from the hip here as I have not researched this question. 

If someone wakes you up early some morning by banging on your door and arouses you from sleep just to wish you a good day, you probably won't receive it too well. They might just as well be standing outside your door and cursing you. 

The point is, we should be considerate of others even when we have good intentions.
