I’m always amazed at the stupid questions people ask. Although since they are so many stupid people around, I shouldn’t be surprised. And it seems that I know so many Stupid People, I should be used to it.
But, I’m still amazed when I’m asked some things. So I thought it might be helpful to compile answers to the stupid questions so you’d be prepared. Sometimes, we’re just so damned shocked by the questions, we don’t have a good answer (until we walk away…then I have GREAT answers!). I’m thinking if we’re prepared with a good answer then we can get much more done because we don’t have to pause and wonder how these people managed to get out of the house by themselves.
Q: Are you going to wear THAT? (Asked as you are walking out the door.)
A: No. I’m going to change clothes in the car. These are just my ‘going to the car clothes’.
Q: What are you doing? (Asked while you’re doing something SO obvious, only a very stupid person couldn’t figure it out.)
A: I’m using the bathroom. I think ‘Using the bathroom’ is an acceptable answer when the question is that stupid.
Q: Are you at home? (Asked when calling your land line…at home.)
A: No. This is a recording. Leave a message at the beep. Then you get to make the Beeping sound and hang up. PERFECT!
Q: Are you ready? (Asked when you are in the shower/in your bra and panties/hair is wet…you get the idea.)
A: Yes. No other words are necessary.
Q: Are you going to buy that? (Asked while you’re in the check out line.)
A: No. No other words are necessary.
Q: Did you save room for dessert?
A: I only ate dinner so I could eat dessert…of course I want Dessert!
Q: Are you watching this? (Asked while you’re sitting in front of the TV…watching.)
A: No, I’m sleeping with my eyes open. Please don’t change the channels or I’ll wake up and be really pissed.
….Since these are a few of the most recent questions I’ve been asked, I thought you, too, might benefit! Please share your most recent stupid questions ~ maybe we can get a little red book and put them all together so we can just flip to the best answer for the Next Time..you you KNOW there will be a next time!
