Most Annoying Questions Parents Ask


The Top Ten

1 How was school?

What's the point of asking this when all your kid will say is "good" - DoroExploro13

I never say good. I just reply with a straight up honest TERRIBLE - Lanturnizer6

Since my parents do this so much, I pretty much have to say that school was good right when I get in the car every time before they can even ask the question themselves. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This really gets on my nerves. I love my parents, but I really don't get why they keep on asking this question. And if I say it was fine, they keep asking questions about what I did and the like. - Elric-san

(My high school special ed teacher gives me a hard time at school today)

Terrible. My teacher yelled at me and made me cry in front of the whole class. I also got in trouble for nothing and when I told her that I didn't do anything wrong, she will not believe me. I wish that she was dead.
