Questions you hate/greatly dislike

Some questions just rub certain people the wrong way. What's a question specific to you, that you hate hearing people ask or just think is dumb or whatever.
I personally hate when people ask "When are you getting married?", or "When are you having a baby?" to non-married people in long term relationships and Newlyweds with no child respectively. Always thought it was dumb and kinda insensitive.
Well, Vent away fellow Dromers.

THANKS MODS.

How about this-

Right after specifically telling the waiter for no tomatoes on the sandwhich. And when the sandwich comes... there's tomatoes on it. And after telling the waiter that there's tomatoes on the sandwhich. "Why? Is she allergic to tomatoes?"

Me: *thinking* um you better hope I'm not allergic to tomatoes.

When people have news, begin with "Guess what?" and then actually expect you to guess more than once.

"do you have any bags?"
from when I work, yes we have our bags right next to the cash register, so you can take as many as you need yourself. And we've had that probably as long as I'm old AND they are easy to spot.

"how much does this cost?"
Oh, I don't know, how about checking those new thing we have called price label stored right under the ware you are interested in.

"if you don' have it in, don't advertise it in the store sales paper"
Because we, as a small local store can decide what stands in those papers when they are pre-made before hand. And often we don't get the right wares in if we don't usually supply them.

"Why are you always out of bread"
Because you arrive 15 minutes before closing time and we don't bake them ourselves.

Being a stores clerk would be nice, had it not been for the customers.

When people find out I'm a designer/animator: "Why don't you try to work for Disney?" The entire animation world is Disney to some people.

Are you Filipino?

On the flipside, I hate NOT being asked if I speak Spanish. It bothers me when they start speaking to me in Spanish without asking first. I pretend like I don't speak it at that point, even though I do.

When you stand up to get yourself something then somebody get's the nerve to say this: "Since you're standing up, could you get the remote?" and it's right in front of them.

when nosey people ask personal questions not out of any kind of concern but because they are looking for juicy tidbits to gossip about.

I also have come to dislike when someone asks you where you bought your clothing or jewelry and then when you tell them they're like "well excuse me!" as if where you bought it is some high fashion expensive place that only pretentious people go.

being asked 'you're not done/ready yet" or some other equivalent regarding how fast I can do something or get myself ready.

In general people who ask personal questions when it's not really there business.

When you fill out all those forms at the Doctor's office, then tell the nurse about whatever's wrong as she writes it down and gives it to the Dr. Then the Dr. asks "So whats the problem" when he comes in. WTF, didnt you read that stuff??

"Why don't you drink?"

Umm. Why don't you collect antique spoons? Right, because you have no interest in doing so.

Why aren't you listening to (insert overrated contemporary musician/pop star)? They just want you to feel that certain new songs/albums are cool when in reality its crap. The same applies to other forms of entertainment.

Well it's the best one

When you see someone you know in a grocery store and they're like "What are you doing here?" and I'm just like "Oh, you know. Just hunting elephants."
