There’s not much that is worse than being asked a question you don’t want to answer or being asked the same question over and over again. We probably all have certain questions that really annoy us when someone asks them.

Reddit user gypsy888888 asked, “What’s one question you hate being asked?” A lot of the answers are relatable, but you might find some of the questions surprising. You may even discover that you’ve been asking a question that some people find annoying, or you might not find these questions annoying at all.
