"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.

Zeratide

"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.

HLDNCR1124

"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.

YoSoyGring0

"My answer..."

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

jestert26

"Stressful and awful..."

"How's the job search going?"

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

operarose

"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."

O_Apples

"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.

No two people share exactly the same likes and interests.

But on occasion, one might find themselves being among the few, if not the sole members of a certain fan club.

Indeed, while Cats earned a place on the list of the worst movies of all time, its 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests that there are a handful of people who actually liked it.

Or while many people dread having to clean their homes, some simply can't wait to get started, and will look for any and every opportunity to do so.

Redditor StardustNova_ was curious to hear where members of the Reddit community found themselves in a distinct minority of appreciation, leading them to ask:

"What's something you like that the vast majority people hate?"

It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".

To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.

Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.

If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.

Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:

"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"
