While you are in a cinema , you might be asked "HEY , why are you here?" from a known person.Why I am there? To watch the movie...then whatelse? Why such silly questions?Have you ever come across people like this?They just ask such questions for the sake of talking to you. Wont you find it silly?Any other examples like that?

Now i just wonder what they are doing at the cinema then, sweetie? I get that question when i meet a friend in a grocery store. I don't even know what the hell i am doing there myself. Is there any other place i can do my grocery shopping? TATA.

No - of course not - she goes there to be asked that question. Saphy - here is an intelligent interpretation of your grocery question. They want to know what you are buying - so that they can avoid buying that - and thereby keep their distinction as "intelligent" ones. :)

krupesh, believe me, there is nothing else to do or see in any grocery store. Vannie, they cannot get why i eat heart and health products. You will faint if you see what these people eat.

what are you doing here? is also one of the question we usually hear, as if they are the only people who can go at that place har har har. funny but stupid at the same time. my wife jokes back on people who ask that but the joke is always sarcastic. another one, you had a haircut then people will ask did you had a hair cut? some question that are really funny but irritating.

Haha that is really silly, well i guess they didn't have an object for discussion, for a long this time, i never met my friend at cinema and asking the same questions like that, unless i'm in the middle of the shopping mall, they may ask me that question

I have been to the movies many times. I do not think I have been asked that quesiton. it seems silly to me when both parties are at the movies.

You know, I've never countered someone asking me why I was at the movies. I mean I have been at the theater and had someone ask me what I was there to see, but never have I been asked why I was there. That said, I know that there are plenty of times that people ask stupid questions, but most of the time I think that people don't realize that what they are asking is a stupid question. Of course, I could be wrong here.

I’ve encountered the same kind of questions (LOL)! Like the time I was sweeping the front porch and my neighbour walked over and asked, “Hi, wathca doing?” Well duh! What does it look like? Sometimes people speak just for the sake of hearing their own voices! It’s like that when folks ask how you are but are not really interested...

krupesh thats a great question and I wish I knew the answer.If someone asked me an asinine question like that I think I would ponder for awhile then say, to watch the movie.whey? can there be but one answer and what would that be pray tell.Then when this dummy got all quiet I would say very loudly and why did you come here, just to annoy me?.
