Most Annoying Questions Parents Ask

The Top Ten
1 How was school?

(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.

This is how it goes
Sister: *starts talking or bragging about something*
Papa: Ok how was school
Me: FIne. *thinking: no. stop. I don't want to talk about it*
Papa: Did you learn anything?
Me: *makes sarcastic comment about something bad that happened*
Example: Yeah I learned people don't change.

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.

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."

2 What are you doing?

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

Just questioning the meaning of life.

Minding my own business.

3 What did you get on the test?

This gave me anxiety for 2 years.

4 Who are you talking to?

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

It's none of their business!

An imaginary person

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

5 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.

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

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

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

6 How many friends do you have?

That kind of hurts when they ask that...

Does it even matter how does it affect your life and why do I have to tell you, you should be proud of me

I hate this question

7 What's 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

8 How are you?

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 serious, every time they ask this I'll say I'm fine.
I'm depressed? I'm fine
I just tried to kill myself? I'm fine
I self-harmed? I'm fine
I was bullied today? I'm fine
I haven't eaten today? I'm fine

9 Can I use your laptop/phone?
10 Who's ___?

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 and 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 cause your parents asked about a video game character

Me: I hung out with Dylan in the library today
Mom: Oooh, who's Dylan? Is he cute? What's his hair color? Is he shorter than you? Are you guys dating?
Me: *facepalms*

So many times when I mention a boys name. Then they ask if I like him.

The Contenders
11 What's ____?

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

Why not you look it up in the dictionary?

12 Who's your friend?
13 What's the worst that can happen?

Easy. I die of fear

14 Who did you sit with at lunch?

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

Why do you care?

15 Can 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 and when I showed it, I was able to think of a good excuse for looking it up and much to my surprise, he believed me! - PastelSnowstorm

I'm not looking up porn!

16 Can I see your Instagram?
17 Why aren't you doing your homework?

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

I'll do it when I want to, don't rush me or I'll panic.

Because I don't have any

18 Why?

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

19 Who's your boyfriend/girlfriend?

Why would I tell you

20 Who did you dance with?
21 When am I going to 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 of.

Dude I'm 16. I am not old enough yet.

22 What are you thinking about?

Me: Why you're 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?

Dad: Whatcha thinkin about?
Me: You don't want to know...

23 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 am 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?!

Because you're always at work and I literally have nothing to do

24 You didn't do this did you?
25 When are you going to get a job?

Nobody trusts me.
