Today’s Daily Prompt:What question do you hate to be asked? Why?

There is no question in particular that I don’t like being asked, but I most certainly don’t like being asked a question which has an obvious answer. I posted about this sometime ago. A fictional example; you’re at your therapist and you tell him about a traumatic experience and then he in turn will ask “And how do you feel about that?” That is when I want to ask “Well, how do you think I feel about it?” but of course I wont say that because I’m too blooming polite.
The other type of question I can’t stand is when a person asks a question as a statement and waits expecting an answer. An example; My little child is very active, she will climb trees, swing, run around outside and will be barefooted most of the playing time … then the question will go something like this (and it’s always from an older lady) “I don’t know if it’s a good idea for children to be running around barefooted in this weather?” The expression is priceless of course when I choose not to answer…because it wasn’t really a question, was it?
And there you have it. I have become quite flippant when people ask me questions that I don’t want to answer because I’ve spent far too much time answering to people I didn’t need to answer to in the first place, just I didn’t realize that until recently 🙂
