What are some of the dumb questions that you get asked? My favorite is while you are at work, someone call you and asks "What are you doing?", you feel like telling them, "I am at work, what do you think I am doing having a party." My father in law is faithful for this. He lives about 30 minutes from me, and he will call, (it can be like 20 degree outside), and he will ask me "Is it cold there?", I want to scream "No we are in the middle of a heat wave, yes it is cold here."

I was at a boutique looking at the blouses on display and come this salesgirl and asked me 'what are you looking?' Knowing that am looking at the blouses, I answered 'fish'! I guess she was shocked with my answer and thought that she has met an insane woman as her she starred at me without blinking her eyes. I walk off just after I replied her. It was definitely a wrong question asked.

Yep, sales people can ask some dumb questions to. I think they have training in how to ask dumb questions.

lol...I call my husband at work sometimes to ask him to pick up milk or something but I always start the conversation with, "So, whatcha doin'?" Drives him crazy! I was a teacher for many years but the dumbest questions always seem to come from adults.

So you are guilty of asking dumb questions. lol. I agree I think adults do ask the dumbest things. We just expect children to ask questions and understand that they are learning, so it does not bother us as much.
