Most Annoying Questions Parents Ask


The Top Ten

1 How was school?

I could never properly answer this question because when the school day was over; I would basically delete it all from my mind since it was all boring to me, so after being asked I would reply "I don't remember."

"Normal..." (Synonyme: Nothing to see here)

Nothing annoying about this, They care about you. - Ananya

Look people by know u know I hate school

4 Who are you talking to?

Sometimes I may talk to my self because I have no one to talk to at the time, it feels embarrased when I hear this

Whenever I'm talking to my online friends they're always SO NOSY! It's the worst. - galaxyfox

My mom thinks that if you constantly talk to yourself you have mental problems

My parents don't care who I talk to, as long as it's not harmful to me. - Elric-san

Nothing is annoying about this! - mood333

what - guitarwiz1964

1. What else am I to respond with other than "fine"?
2. Is there really ever a time where I would respond no instead of confronting you and telling you what's up?
3. Can you not tell how I'm feeling already?
You should see that I am irritated by these questions.

I’m ok I guess.

7 Who are you texting?

No one... - Misfire

It's none of the parents business if their children are texting someone because my Mum does that to me all the time and takes forever to give my phone back.

I don't really text but I chat/message and it gets annoying when they ask who I'm messaging. - DarkBoi-X

I'm texting the president requesting him to lower the taxes..
