"Did you know your dad's the principal?"

"Did you do something to this fireplace?"

"Are you Swedish?"
(Actually my sister was asked that by a random guy at the grocery store, but I was with her. She has red hair...)

Out of curiosity, where was the person from who asked you that? Because for some reason, a lot of people get the Aussie accent mixed up with, say, the London accent.

It was a fellow Australian. I don't have a broad "ocker" accent so some people just assume that I'm English as a result.

"Are you new here?"
Asked to me by someone who'd been going to the same school as me for 9 years.


But that's less of a stupid question, and more of a reminder of how quiet I am, I guess.

Ha, no one ever asks me, they just assume. Rolling Eyes
Doesn't bother me that much, except for when they mistake me for a 12 year old boy.

That's like yesterday when a waitress asked me if I wanted a kid's menu. I haven't been asked that in like...five years. I was annoyed.



But I said yes. I mean, come on, free crayons. Very Happy

Lets see,

"Are you married?" ...this was when I was 14 and in the hospital with swine flu while my father stood next to me...Yeah, that makes sense.

"Would you like a bar seat?" again, as a 14-year-old once again with my father only in a resturant...apparently I looked quite old for my age.

I got something like that the other day.
My Dad took my to the psychiatrist, and when we walked in the psychiatrist said 'are you here for couples counselling?'

Neutral

"I know the speed limit is 40 mph. If I'm doing 40 and the person in front of me is doing 40, how come I don't run into them? Is it because we've got space between us?"

"Do you have a boyfriend yet?" Answer: No. "Do you have a girlfriend?" Answer: NO!!

"Did you just get off work?" When clearly I've gotten off at 5:30 for the past few days and it's not quite 6:00.

LOL lesgrillon.


Yesterday after dinner I was waiting for my family to come out and I was standing outside of the restaurant/bar we'd just eaten at. I was wearing a Beatles t-shirt and I had my purse on my shoulder, and this woman comes up to me, she looks like a regular woman (you know, not crazy off the street or anything) and asks me, "Do you happen to have a lighter in that purse?" First of all I don't smoke, and I look fairly young for my age anyway, plus I can't recall anyone asking me that before, so it was just kind of an odd question. When my sister came out of the restaurant she asked me what the woman said because she was watching through the window, and I couldn't stop laughing for some reason and she goes, "Well whatever it was you sure seem happy about it." And I told her and she says, "Um, it's probably because you're wearing a Beatles t-shirt and you're acting really high right now." Lol.

^ Random homeless people have sometimes asked me for cigarettes, and I don't smoke either. Once when a homeless guy asked me for a cigarette, and I said I didn't smoke, he got really angry, probably thinking that I did have cigarettes and that I just refused to give him one.

Question on a job application for McDonald's: "You are in the middle of a shift when you notice your coworker, Jim, looks really upset. What do you do?" I don't know why, but I thought that was funny.

Once a homeless man came up to my mum with a massive roll of string around his neck. He asked mum if he could borrow some string and chucked a fit when she said she didn't have any.
