The most stupid question
« on: October 13, 2007, 03:58:30 AM »
I'm sure people have some good examples:

One stupid question I asked, when my son phoned up to say that he had wrecked his car by pulling out of a side road in front of a car on the main road. The first thing I thought to say was 'didn't you see him?' The answer of course was well do you think I would of pulled out if I'd seen the car coming!!!!!!!!

One I'm sure a lot of have been asked, when you're struggling to stand up or walk        'Ohh does that hurt?'

Any more

Oh thanks for the laughs tonight!  I really needed them!  I'm sure my boys could rattle off stupid questions I ask them (I know it was stupid when they give eachother "the look" and start to giggle) but none come to mind tonight.

The most annoying question from my husband is when I'm struggling to get up off the couch (right after he sat down and is all comfortable) and he asks if I need help.  He knows how much I hate to ask for help and knows I'll say no.  I just wish for once he wouldn't ask and just help instead.

why is that so hard for them!!  of course you need help!  and don't even do the sigh and eye roll when you, god forbid, have to get off your spot on the couch to help out for a second.  ugh.  so irritating.

The family 'can I help' questions are always hard.

My favourite stupid question is when the commentator goes up to a sports person, when they've jsut been knocked out of a competition, you are just waiting for that 'How do you feel right now?' to be asked. I'm suprised they don't get more rude answers

Struggling into the hospital and I met someone I used to work with. she looked me up and down and then asked:

 " Have you hurt your leg then?"

I was standing there with my NWB leg, wobbling on the snow and ice with my crutches, praying I'd make into my appointment in the hospital for an MRI without slipping and messing up the other leg!

I felt like answering Noooooo I'm just doing this for research on balancing acts!

I was asked the dumbest question just yesterday, My Big Dave took me to my pain management doctor and as we walked into the front office, there was a man sitting beside the door, I hobbled over to the counter and got the paperwork to fill out and set down next to him. He looked me up and down and then he let his eyes land on the incision on my knee. " Is that a surgery scar?"  Before I could even pop off, Dave looked over at him and said seriously" Naw, that's where " I " had to remove a splinter from her knee." The dufus believed him.  GEEZ!! ;D ;D

Love it, we should get a whole list of things to tell people when they ask about scars, how about 'that's where they took the alien out'

I had identical twin friends at uni and the number of people who would ask one of them when their birthday was, and then look at the other twin and ask "and when's yours?" Gee. I wonder.

the most stupid questions for me is, when you are at the dentist they have their hand and insruments in your mouth and ask if your ok. (its like you have your hands in my mouth) how can i answer you.??
and on the same wave length as some of the others, when people see you and they say are you still on crutches then?

The pity of such questions is they dumb klutzes that ask them do not know what a rhetorical question is!

Today I'm buying new ski pants - shop assistant asks me in all seriousness "Are you going skiing then?" - no the white stuff lying half a metre deep outside the door is just for show and is really just soap suds!
