I like that word hate ... It's fine to use sometimes . I Hate when people ask me if I'm reemebering to eat ... I hate that question. I've lost about 20 pounds in this past couple months that I should not have and I'm trying to get it back ... But NO ... I don't forget to eat ... I hate dealing with fools,

I forget to eat but that's because I forget everything all the time. But it's not people's business if you aren't remembering to eat.

I HATE the question "Are your kids all by the same man?" Just because I have the age gaps of 19, 12, 9, and 2 they automatically assume they have different fathers!

Yep. I'm watching this program about my giant life and they're featuring women over 6 feet tall and so far they featured four and the tallest one is 6'9". next week they're going to the four more?
6'5 to 6'9. All men they like are between 5'8 to 6'.

At my age, if I haven't seen somebody for a while -- especially a female friend -- they almost invariably ask, "How many grandchildren do you have?"

They seem to think it's a competition, much like how many "friends" do you have on Facebook.

I'd like to think that there's more to my life than the number of Didglings infesting the planet.

Are you sure I'm not a mirage, Tom?

Sorry, Didge, I'm not going to let you let that complement roll off your back---it's needs to sink in.

Specifically, your "density of being" as demonstrated on here is too significant for it to be a mirage.

Then thank you, Tom. You'd possibly be surprised at how insubstantial I am in the real world. :(

It's not so much a question that I hate, its more about how people act when they have a question. I know my condition is not commonly seen so if you have a question, don't stare at me and look away when I meet your stare and when you ask, just ask. Don't soften or PCify your question. I'm not five, a direct question won't offend me. Did that sound like a rant? It wasn't suppose to sound like a rant.

I don't like people asking me why we only had one child.  That's just what worked for us.  They think only children are spoiled brats.  Our son wasn't the least bit spoiled.  He didn't get a car until he earned it himself.  He went through college with a bit our of help .. But mostly scholarships paid his way.  He graduated from a great university ... Also being in Navy ROTC and went on to become a US Naval officer.  He got his Masters Degree after that and now owns his own consulting firm.  People can spoil 10 kids if they want to ....  :)

Well technically I don't hate questions like these but it does get annoying if it's one of the first questions they ask me when people first meet me. Questions like "where are you from-from/really from?", "do you only hang out with (or date, depending on the context) other Asians?", "what kind of Asian are you?", or "why do you all Asians look the same?" are very demeaning, especially when I've only just met the person.

I know some people, especially Asian-Americans, who would be offended by questions like these and would never answer them in any kind of situation. I wouldn't mind answering some of these questions after I get to know someone because I do realize that sometimes people are curious. However I find it off putting if those are the first things people want to know about me because it just seems like they only want to know me because I am Asian.

"do you only hang out with (or date, depending on the context) other Asians?", "what kind of Asian are you?", or "why do you all Asians look the same" Dear God - do you really get questions like that. I just can't imagine anyone being rude enough to ask them. `

I don't like people ask me in impolite or rude way, but if they ask me what I dislike, I don't mind, so the main is to be polite with me, that's all.
