Considering I spend a lot of time alone, I tend to talk to myself often, but sometimes people overhear me and ask "Who are you talking to?" Once in a while I joke that I'm talking to Donatello via Quantum Leap style brainwave hologram.

People don't want to risk buying you something that you don't like.

That's just rude and borderline racist/xenophobic. Are you capable of just laughing it off, though?

I'd much rather laugh at ignorance than get offended by it. But I let em know it's not really cool to say.

That's the right way to go about it. Better than running to tumblr and cry about it in an SJW fashion.

My sister once asked me, "What does your boyfriend do all day?" My answer, "How the f*ck am I supposed to know when I'm not there? Why don't you worry about what YOU do all day, b*tch?" She also asks me if I know what my brother's up to. My answer: "No. I don't talk to him, but I assume he's working since he has a job."

Huh why do answer it in such an aggressive manner? That seems like a fairly normal question for a family member to ask.

It's just that she asks so many stupid questions sometimes, and it really ticks me off. I don't know what my boyfriend does all day, and I don't care. The only reason she asks that is because she has nothing else better to do with her life than to be nosy.

No, it's not because no one else has asked me that. She's just a nosy b*tch who can't mind her own business and worry about her own affairs.

Yep, I do hate her and wish she didn't exist. She always acts so concerned for everybody yet she was the one who got married behind our backs and didn't tell us until a week before her wedding.

Ah I see. Well, family issues are always tough and I don't know(nor is it any of my business) the story between them, so I won't ask Bubbly about it.

To be fair, she and I used to be really close to each other and were like best friends. But then, after I started college at the same school as her, things changed. She started acting like she was my mom instead of my sister and constantly dictated everything I should do. She kept saying I couldn't talk about pro wrestling with my friends even though all of my friends were wrestling fans, too. She kept ordering me to do my homework at school even though I told her I'd rather do it at home.

And from there, it's just gone downhill with secrets and lies. She got married behind our backs on Thanksgiving, and didn't bother to tell us until a week before. So, yeah, needless to say, our relationship will never be warm and fuzzy.

Edit: And every time I hear, "What do you want for Christmas?" I pretty much just answer, "Nothing because I don't care about the holiday."

"Do you have a boyfriend?"

"What do you study?"

"What are you going to do with your degree?"

'Why did you choose that?"

"How are your studies going?"

I appreciate the fact people are curious about me. But everybody asks the same questions and it gets on my nerves.

I hate when people ask if I make a lot of money doing what I do for a living.

I genuinely don't think I make enough, put I feel like an ingrate since it does pay the bills.

Assuming you're still a tower climber, this article says their average wage is about $44,000 a year. That's not bad at all.

It's a risky job, so it better pay well enough and have a good insurance in case of work accidents.

More like $35,000 a year for me. Which is certainly enough to live on, not complaining there. I do understand why people would think it pays more, it just doesn't lol.

In a nut shell, people just shouldn't pry about money.
