    I'm quiet an irritable person anyway, but what what are some of the most annoying questions someone could ask you?
    For me it has to be either :
    1) What have you been up to recently?
    2) What do you want to do when you're older?

    I don't know why, they just really bug me

    "how are you?"
    "whats everyone up to?" (i have to give a report on what each member of my family is doing)
    "is that your natural hair?"

    "Hows UCAS?" Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    "What are your plans for this summer?"

    Feel to embarrassed to simply say "nothing"

    ^ this also!
    also the "how are you" of course.

    I know people are asking it just to seem interested in what you're doing and nice, but i just don't understand what they benefit from asking it. It's become a generic conversation starter when seeing someone or on the phone - just annoys me!

    1) "When are you getting married?" - That's what "aunties" ask me at weddings.
    2) "Are you 'half-caste' ?"

    ''How's the girlfriend ?'' - Bearing in mind Ive given the same reply for 16 years ''I don't have one''.

    "Is that you're natural eyes" or "are you wearing contacts" when I'am not....these top the list. And also "How are you" when clearly you are upset or ill...are really annoying.

    People that ask other people "Are you OK?", when they're obviously not.

    "Can I ask a question?"

    'What's it like being a twin?'. :unimpressed:

    After an exam "So how did it go?"

    and also "What do your parents do?" Are you going to judge me on what my parents do? I just find it so pointless to ask, like what they do for a living will impact on how you view me.

    Yeah or before A-Level exams arguably the most important exams of my life so far "Have you revised?".

    I despise that question. Going round to see what everybody is doing. Does it really matter? Does the person really care?

    I've been asked this question by some relative I don't even know. I've known people who attempt to start conversations with that question

    "I'm going to the doctors. I feel sick."
    "Aww, why do you feel sick?"

    I don't know. That's why I'm going to the doctors.

    "who the hell are you?"
    "why are you in my house?"
    "what's in that bag?"

    ... just a few of the more annoying ones really :/

    When people greet me with "Alright", are they asking me if i'm alright or are they saying hello?
