"What's a question you hate when people ask you?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor cooldood1410, who reminded us that there are certain things we'd rather not have to answer again.

People can be so nosy, right?

Perhaps life would be much, much easier if we all agreed to stay out of each other's business. (Easier said than done, we know.)


"Well, you see..."

"How can your stand sticking yourself to give yourself insulin?"

Well you see, death is pretty strong motivation.

"I'm colorblind..."

I'm colorblind. Anytime someone finds out about it they immediately point to something and go "WHAT COLOR IS THIS?!?" with the most annoying enthusiasm.

"No, I haven't been mishearing or misunderstanding them."

Giphy

I'm a twin. "How do you tell yourself apart?"

No, I haven't been mishearing or misunderstanding them. They've actually asked me how I tell myself apart from my twin.

"My answer..."

At work: "Are you done yet?" My answer, no matter where I am in the process, is always very sarcastically "Yep..."

"Stressful and awful..."

"How's the job search going?"

Stressful and awful and completely dehumanizing and I want to die, thanks.

"Why aren't you..."

Why aren't you in a relationship yet? Or the other one: why aren't you married yet?

I'm so tired of this question.

TheDustOfMen

"Nope."

So are you just home for the summer?

Nope. I graduated university 3 years ago and work here full time, thanks.

"When people..."

When people ask about my parents. Relatively young and don't have either of em. More of an awkward instance where the conversation can stall when I'm like, well they're no longer with us.

ReverendLoveboy

"An actual conversation..."

An actual conversation I had with some conservationist or missionary person.

Them: "So where are you from?"

Me: "I live around here."

"Sorry, I mean, where is your family from?"

"Los Angeles."

"No, I mean, where did your family originate?"

"Oh, the Philippines."

"I did some work there a few years ago. Beautiful country."

"I don't know. I've never been."

"I walk with a crutch..."

I walk with a crutch and also a limp and I get asked every single day what is wrong with me it drives me insane and makes me feel more self conscious than I already am.

Raise your hands--who had an emo phase in the 2000s? I know I did, as did a lot of people around me. All of us heard “It's just a phase" from our parents at some point, but when you're a kid, life as we know it seems so permanent.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
