Mine is “When are you having kids?” or assuming I’m pregnant every time I say we have some big news (the last time was when my husband had a job interview). 

Edit: I thought of another one.  I hate it when people ask me why my upper arms are red and if I’m sunburned.  No, I’m not sunburned.  You’ve seen me enough to  know they’re always like this.  And don’t continuously ask why they’re like that.  All the questions do is make me more and more self conscious about my arms.

I have two. One wedding related, and one non.

My wedding related one is: “Are you two engaged yet?”

And non-wedding related is: “How much do you weight?”

I REALLY freaking hate that.

“How old are you?”

Sometimes I answer with “Old enough that I don’t want to answer.”

Also, I hate it when people that we haven’t invited to the wedding ask when the wedding date is. It’s not that I mind the question itself, but it feels so awkward after I tell them the date, and can kind of see the mental math going on in their head as they work out that yes, we probably sent out the invites already, and no, they did not get one…

@miss.nicole: Haha I HATE the sick one! I had a boss who used to do that all the time on days when I felt like I actually looked really nice- drove me nuts!

I’m a really young-looking teacher, so I’ll have to vote for the age one. “Are you sure you’re old enough to be a teacher?” 

Oh no, thanks for pointing that out. I’m actually not sure, so let me go check. ??? lol

“When are you having kids?”

“We aren’t”

“Oh, you’ll change your minds”

Are you fing kidding me? We are 40 with three grown kids, why the hell would we want to start over now? Besides that, we had him cut last year. This baby making factory is closed for business! People need to realize that not every newly wed couple is having kids. Would they still ask that if we were 60?

I also hate it when I try to tell people any kind of biggish news and they cut me off before I can get a word out and ask if I’m pregnant. Like even if that WAS my news, wouldn’t it just be polite to let me have my moment and say it first anyway? 

I don’t like when people ask how much I pay in rent (in NYC it’s like asking how much $ you make), what I like to do in my spare time (always hated this question) and if I want to have kids eventually.

I hate when people ask how much we are paying for the wedding. I just think thats rude to ask, especially if you dont know me that well.. Idk why it bugs me it just does.

“Is the item still available?” with no other question or info on Craigslist.

(we are currently selling all our stuff to backpack through Asia for 6 months/move across the country, and Craigslist stupidity is driving me insane).

If the listing is still posted, it’s available, people. Don’t waste time with email back-and-forth – give a time you want to come look at it, ask about the shape the item is in, make an offer, etc.

“When are you going to get engaged?” Umm… well why don’t you ask my SO that question seeing as I clearly don’t know.

After any form of important holiday or celebration… “Did you get your ring?” Don’t you think if I got engaged I would have mentioned that one to you? I would be telling EVERYONE if I got engaged.

“Is your SO going to get mad about this?” This one seriously just annoys me. It always comes from some guy and it’s usually when I give them a hug or sit down to talk to them or something a little personal. No my SO does not care. We have trust in eachother. If he got mad over the little crap like that I wouldn’t be with him.

a) “Have you been crying? Are you OK?”

(SO SO SO many people ask me that when I DON’T wear MAKE-UP. Surprised It makes me think that the “real me” is just a washed up old bag….)

b) How much rent are you paying?

(How much rent are YOU paying? You first!)

c) How much money can you make DOG WALKING?

(Enough to pay my RENT! lol)

d) How is the “weight thing” going?

(obviously not well. Why ask? Are you blind?)

When some person asks me to : ” go eat a cheeseburger or something” 

I have since gained weight but people can be so insensitive!
