I hate being asked questions with obvious answers. I’m impatient and have an intolerance for stupidity, which unfortunately, there’s an overabundance of in our society.
For example, a couple of weeks ago, after my boss left work for the day, he called my desk phone.
“End user support. This is Twindaddy speaking,” I answered in the most professional voice I could muster.
“Hey, this is (your boss). Have you left yet?” he asked stupidly.
Now, if you’re confused as to why this is a stupid question, I’ll explain it to you. Once. I answered my DESK PHONE. Where the hell else would I have been? If I had left I wouldn’t have even heard the frickin’ phone ring!
The dumbest question I get, and have been getting for the last 13 years, is, “Are they twins?” This goes right through me. Of course they’re twins! They look the same. They sound the same. They are the same height. When they were younger, they wore the same outfits, only in different colors so we could easily tell which one was which. We (my ex and I) still were asked if they were twins.
Please, people. Don’t ask questions with obvious answers.
That’s what question I hate being asked the most. What about you?
