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

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

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

Look people by know u know I hate school

6 Who are you texting?

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..

No one - Poppinbubbles22

7 How are you?

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.

27 What's the date?
28 What schools do your friends go to?

Um you're right there so why are you asking a question you already know the answer to?
