Top 10 Most Annoying Questions Parents Ask

The Top Ten
1 What are you doing?

I'm asked this by all of my family whenever I do anything.

Just questioning the meaning of life.

2 How was school?

(My high school special ed teacher gave 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 didn't believe me. I wish she were dead.

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

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

3 Who are you texting?

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

Every time my Mum asks me this, I get annoyed. If I ever say mind your own business to my Mum, she will scream at me and threaten to hit me.

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

4 What is your password?

Ugh, I know right? My parents ALWAYS ask for my password. They force me to tell them. So, every time they do, I change it.

5 May I use your laptop/phone?
6 What's the worst that can happen?
7 Who are you talking to?

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

I always get this whenever I talk to myself and my mom hears me. It's sometimes annoying.

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

8 What did you get on the test?

This gave me anxiety for 2 years.

9 Why?

This is the main problem with parents. The question is always about asking why.

10 Who did you dance with?
The Contenders
11 May I see what you're doing?

I absolutely hate it when that happens! One time I was about to look something up (not anything inappropriate, thank God!) when my stepdad just barged into my room without permission and asked what I was doing on my Kindle. My mom won't let me have a phone, and I'm 12! I was absolutely startled when he said that, but I did it anyway. When I showed it to him, I was able to think of a good excuse for looking it up and, much to my surprise, he believed me! - PastelSnowstorm

12 Who did you sit with at lunch?

And after that question, they ask, "What do your friends bring for lunch?"

13 Who is your friend?
14 How many friends do you have?

That kind of hurts when they ask that.

15 Who is ____?

The other day, my mum asked, "Who's Yunus? Do you fancy him?" And I was just like, "Ew, no, he's so annoying with his loud voice, know-it-all personality, and big head." Honestly, he was just a boy in my class. Anyways, I like someone else.

My mom asked who Sonic the Hedgehog is. Do you guys think that it's annoying for you because your parents asked about a video game character?

So many times when I mention a boy's name, they ask if I like him.

16 May I see your Instagram?
17 Who is your boyfriend/girlfriend?
18 Why aren't you doing your homework?

Probably because you're asking me why I'm not doing my homework.

19 When will I have grandchildren?

My parents already have...*pauses to count*...five grandchildren and one great-grandson. Are they happy? No. They want ME to have children for them to make a fuss over.

Remember, you don't owe anyone children or grandchildren.

20 What are you thinking about?

Me: Why are you asking this question? Before that? Oh, I was thinking about Princess Zelda fighting monsters or something else random.

So annoying! Why do you have to know what we're thinking about at this exact moment?

21 Why are you always on your phone?

My mom is always like, "Why are you always on your phone? What business do you have on there?" So annoying! I can be on it if I want to! Just be grateful that I'm not a drug addict!

Because I have friends I haven't seen in months since COVID-19 came, and I have to keep in touch with them! Gosh!

I could be a drug addict! Do you realize how lucky you are?

22 You didn't do this, did you?
23 When will you get a job?
24 You didn't do this, did you? If I find out, then you are punished!

If I were a mother I will spank you in the butt, I told to my mother.

My parents (and relatives) constantly blame me for everything even if my cousins are the ones that did it. They no longer trust me :(

25 What is ____?

What? I think your parents are broken, because no regular parents ask half of these questions.

Why don't you look it up in the dictionary?
