We’ve heard people say that there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but most people probably don’t believe that. For example, there are multiple food service employees who would happily tell you about the stupid things customers have said to them.

Stupid questions are far from limited to food service. These questions can occur in any area of life, and many of us have them. We have these questions that are in the back of our head wanting to be asked but we don’t ask them because we don’t want anyone to look at us like we just asked a stupid question. 

Instead, we sometimes turn to Google for an answer to the question we so badly want answered, but sometimes even Google can’t answer what might not be such a stupid question after all.

Reddit user Imterneto asked, “What is a stupid question you’ve always wanted to ask?” You just might discover that those questions you’ve been wanting to ask weren’t so stupid. After all, how can it be a stupid question if multiple people want to know the answer?
