"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.

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.

There are just too many things we witness throughout life. And there are just some things no human should have to witness. I've lost track on the amount of things I wish I could unsee. Don't you walk away thinking... "Why God? Was that really necessary?" That one moment will almost certainly be one one the moments that you never escape. It's seared into the memory. There when our eyes are open and closed. Awake, asleep, it lingers.

Redditor u/Rainbow-Pickel-Squid wanted to hear some stories to get us SHOOK by asking... [NSFW] What's the most f*cked up thing you've seen?

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.
