    What is silly to one person (because the answer may be obvious)-to others it may truely be a burning question which they really need the answer.
    Some people have a great grasp of the obvious and others just do not.
    So I "try" to tolerate the obvious questions which get tossed my way. Don't always succeed but I try.

    3. This is an Australian trait, but some Aussies tend to state the obvious when coming across certain situations. For instance, if an Australian finds you enjoying yourself in the water, they're likely to ask "Having a swim, eh?" Or if you're covered in blood and screaming in agony, you'll likely hear "Did you hurt yourself, eh?"


    That's an Aussie being caring

    Similar to that other silly question when answering the phone "are you at home?"

    I am preparing food for my pets, constantly stumbling over 5 cats who are desperately trying to awake my attention by snuggling up to me, purring and shouting. My friend is watching the spectacle and finally asks:
    "Do you think they are hungry?"

    When shopping at Costco for cat food, because of our zoo, I always picked up 10 bags of their food that was supplied to them by Science Diet as their price was unbelievably low. I did this every three months until they discontinued it.

    One day, a man in the store kept staring at me and finally he came up and said "I can't stand it anymore...do you have a lot of cats?". I couldn't help myself, I told him "no..just one really big one". I wish I'd had a camera to take a picture of his expression, then I smiled and walked away. He never did find out how many we had.

    My Dr was recently examining my lower back (which I have severe pain issues with), and while pressing on it he hit a spot that almost made me give birth to a cow!!!!!

    The quake then had the nerve to ask..."did that hurt?"

    It could be a reasonable question as the hurt may have been caused by someone or something else..

    I do know a silly answer to a question:

    "I see you're nervous.. First time?"

    "..No, I've been nervous lots of times.."

    This thread is just for me guys and gals! The questions I've always been bombarted are;
    1. When I wasn't married, they used to ask me: "When are you going to get married?"(Why do you care so much? You won't get an invitation anyway!...")
    2. Now that I am married, they keep asking me; "Are you going to have children? When?"
    (You know, I ordered 2 of them and I'm expecting them sometime during next week!)
    3. How old are you?
    (Old enough to know that it is rude to ask a woman her age!)
    4. When they call me at home and I answered, they ask; "Are you there?"
    (No, my twin sister answered the phone!)
    That's all for now!!
    Goodbye Rosanne...Your "family" in TCB will always remember you.

    Or while in the dentist seat, mouth open, hook in it, or drill or whatever, and then the man asking: have you been on holiday?

    Not only a silly question at the time, but how the hell can you answer it?

    That's a good one Rene. I've had that happen many times. How do they expect you to answer?
