The Question I Never Thought Anyone Would Ask Me

I think I've related some of my health problems. I see many doctors, although not as many as I did years ago. But today I was talking to my mom, and we started talking about one of the locations of my doctor's office. It's not in a great part of town, but he's a good doctor, so I just don't think about it. And that led me to think about a question that was asked to me several months ago in that doctor's waiting room. I was sitting in the small waiting room, with three other people spread out across the length of the room. All of a sudden, a young man in his late twenties, gets up and smiles at me, and walks over to stand in front of me. He then asks me, "Will you stand up so I can if you have a big booty?" I kid you not. That is what he asked me. He kept asking me if I had a big booty, and if I could stand up so he could see. As I looked around the waiting room, I see the two other people pretending like they aren't hearing anything. The nurse and receptionist are no where around, and I'm at a loss as to what to do! But obviously, I'm fine, and he never got to see if I HAD a big booty. LOL, it was a serious situation, but I've learned to laugh about it. So tell me, has there ever been a question asked to you, that you never dreamt someone would ask?

After he went away, and the receptionist came back, I did tell her. I also told the doctor. Every time I go there something odd hapens. But thankfully that instance was never repeated. : )

Oh, my God... Ambie, you have some very nice stories to tell, don't you? Hahaha! No one has ever asked me about my booty. They usually just comment that my booty IS big, because that's the truth and I can't deny it. :D Of course only family and close friends tell me that though. I can't imagine a stranger making these comments about my "lowlands". And I have a very nice story about these weird questions. I was at a friend's house, and she had a friend over. I've never seen the other girl before. She was wearing braces for not a long time, and was compaining about her mouth being hurt, and everything. Until then, it was completely normal. Out of the blue, she turns to me and asks me if she can still blow a guy normally with that. I swear, she used the very direct terms for it. I probably blushed, and I said that I didn't know, because I was very young at the time I wore braces. I would NEVER ask something like that to a strange girl!

The only one that comes to mind is pretty dumb. I used to have my lip pierced. I got it when I was 15. Got rid of it right before my 24th birthday. crazy. In that time anyhow I got this question A LOT, especially the first couple years because it was as popular and as normal a thing to see. Like everyone these days have piercings, especially tongue. Anyhow, people would see the lip ring, ask if it hurt then ask if it's weird to kiss someone with it than ask "can I try it?" and it was never some hot guy that I'd be all "totally!" with. No no it was always some creepy guy that I had no interest in or some chick and I don't go down that way! I swear I never got to take advantage of that question!

If only Brad Pitt had asked.

I'm not that attracted to brad pitt, but he would definitely have been a good one to try out the lip ring kissing on :) though, honestly it wasn't that weird. At least, no one ever told me it was weird and I didn't think it was weird!

I thought I was the only one who didn't think Brad Pitt was all that. I just thought it was weird a guy would ask you that.

"Would you like to help my husband and I try this stuff out?" The question came from a customer at a vitamin/nutrition store that I was working at, a lady in her 70's or so that came in with her husband of about the same age, and they were buying what was essentially an herbal Viagra-type product. I thought at first she was kidding, until she actually gave me their number. *shudders*

*giggles* Oh yeah. I was so stunned I wasn't sure what to say, but I wound up mumbling something about not being available. They never asked again, but every time they shopped after that I just know my face was read the whole time I was waiting on them!

next time when you do not know what to do, 2 course of actions to choose from, 1. kick him in the balls, or 2. wave in your case i think option no.1 is preferred.

That's the weardist question ever. I wonder if somebody had dared the guy to go up to you and ask you how big is your booty. You knows how those games are. Somebody would dare someone to do crazy things if they have the gut to do it. Maybe you're the lucky victim during that day.

Yes, sounds like he didn't want to see booty. He just wanted to see a swift boot! Seriously what in the world is going on with people. Its like a good portion of people never grew up mentally. I think its increasing and of course, if you stand up to morons like this you're the one who gets scolded, stared at, and the like. Sigh... I still say its a twilight zone thing -_-

That was indeed an interesting question out of the blue. If I were me, I would have been embarassed and might walk out of the room. Thank goodness, I have not yet encounter such a personal question.

I didn't want to walk out of the room, because he would have gotten the view he wanted. : )

I was at beach festival waiting for my husband and brother to get back and meet me there, when I got tired of waiting for them and I went to get a hot sausage sandwich. I was sitting on a bench eating it, and looking at the beach and the water, when a very drunken and dirty looking guy sat down next to me and asked me if he could have a bite of my sandwich. I said no, and he got mad and said "you can't find any good women anywhere", and walked off. I thought that was pretty weird.

I'd say his definition of a good woman is pretty skewed, drunk or not. It seems a person can't go anywhere without encountering something odd or inappropriate.

I don't think anyone has ever asked me something embarrassing like that and if they did, I have no idea how to handle it. Sounds like you handled it well though.

Well that is certainly a very strange story! If I was a person in the waiting room, I think I would have said something.. or maybe everyone ignoring him was the right thing to do! But I'd be keeping a close eye on him! Maybe he was mentally handicapped(?) Too strange!:)

LOL I"M sorry nothing like that ever happened to me but I just had to answer and tell you that it really sounds funny - now . I"m sure it didn't feel as funny then. I"m glad you told about it to the receptionist and the doctor, just in case. But I guess it's not something that will happen every day - at least not that specific question :)

I'm really glad you think it is funny. It was so odd that if I can entertain people with the story, then more's the merrier. : )

Yes. I had a guy on a motorcycle pull over by me while I was walking one time. I thought he was going to ask directions, but he unzipped and displayed asking "Have you ever seen anything like this?" I just shrugged and said "No, can't say I've ever seen anything that small before!" He rode away in a hurry!

i work next to a bar and so yes, i have dealt with such questions so much that I am no longer shocked and like you i just kind of laugh it off. I have had guys actually ask if they can touch me. I just laugh and say absolutely not. I think sometimes they are just trying to embarrass me or get a reaction.

I have to admit my curiosity. What is a Booty? What do you think It was he wanted to see? Obviously it was something he could only see when you were standing.I wish you could have asked him some questions. "Like whats a Booty?" or "how do you like your Booty?" or "what do you wanna see my big Booty for?" If It'd been me, I'd have asked, "do you shave your booty?" Then the question would have been obvious. I like everything done up in Black and White!

Most everyone in America knows what a booty is, and I think you might to, but are just being odd. LOL, a booty is your rear. No way was I going to stand up to let him see if I had a big booty, a small one, or a triangular one for that matter.

I think one question was "do you even know how to act your race?". That's one that comes to mind first since its most commonly ask. And before I go on a rant, let me at least say my typical response to people who ask me such a question: I'm sorry I don't act like the sterotype. I'm sorry I have much more common sense that I can actually act like a decent human being in public. And of course, I'm sorry you are such a blithering crapsack. One thing that I can at least get pleasure from when people ask moronic questions, is that I get a chance to play with their puny minds of mush.
