Dumb Question

Someone asked me today, "Have you always had a beard?"

"Oh, yes," I replied, "at least I think so. You'd really have to ask my mum."

Baldy Beardy

So what's the dumbest question you've (been) asked?

'Are you Mr H in disguise?' Was probably it.

once we had someone from thr cable company over to check our line. he noticed my 2 kids and asked, "are they both yours?" what do you even say to a question like that?

I said," My daughter has 2 kids: 2 years old and 11 months".
She said, "You're kidding! When did THAT happen?"

"So when are you due?"








I wasn't pregnant...

Z said...

On answering the phone - "Is that you?"

Mr Farty said...

Naga - Have you thought about starting a blog? That would dispel any confusion.

Jacki - Why is that a dumb question?

Marie - No, they're on loan!

Janet - LOL! And hello.

Debi - Oops.

Z - On answering a land line - "Where are you?"
That one really happened to Mrs F.

Jacki said...

Ack! Forgot to add that people started asking that as soon as Emma was born. And people get surprised when I tell them I am happy with just one kid. Emma is more than enough for me. Some people just don't understand how I can be happy with just one kid. But I am.

Welsh Girl said...

Hmm, has to be the person who, when I said I lived in Wales, said 'Do you live underground then?' Huh?????

Mr Farty said...

Jacki - Ah....

Brom - Cool. I bet it's a doozy.

Goth - But how impressed are they when you go <clicky> "try it now" - and it works? Yay tech supp!

John - I fart in your general direction!

Daffers - Could have been Gaelic or Welsh.

Taffeta - Wales, Hobbiton, same thing innit?

Once, when my bloke ordered a black coffee in the Ferry Cafe, the girl behind the counter asked if he would like milk in it.

Mr Farty said...

Liz - That one takes the biscuit.
