I’d said something about my bedroom and he asked me “your bedroom upstairs” and I said “no, my other bedroom in the other house I own!” He called me a smart a** and okay, I did have it coming but I do only have one bedroom. Then I was watching him pour a bottle of water and I said “what are you doing? HELLO, I could see what he was doing!!!!
Why do we do this? We all do it. We ask a question like “is that what your wearing?” You can see what the person is wearing so why would you ask that? I’ve done this before too. I’ve watched someone get out of a car and I’ll say “that’s a nice car, I love it, is it yours?” No, they just got in someone else’s car and got out of it when they saw me coming.
I’ve been asked at the grocery store by the cashier if that was all I needed after they’d scanned all my stuff and I’m waiting to pay. What do they think I’m going to do? Leave all that stuff laying there and go get more groceries? Or she’ll say “cash, check or card” when I’m standing there waiting to scan my card.
I often wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that some people are uncomfortable with silence so they just make up conversation. I’m okay with the quiet so I don’t need to hear mindless chatter but I think my husband is a little uncomfortable with it so he’ll just ask me a question to make conversation.
How many times in your life have you been thisclose to saying to someone “NO SHIT SHERLOCK”. “I can tell your the brightest light bulb in the box!!!!!!” Of course most of us would never say anything like that but would love to just once.
So what are some of the dumbest questions you’ve ever asked someone? Do any of the lame brain ones you’ve been asked come to mind? Let’s share.
