  • See I don't get it...I never saw questions like that as personal. Nosy yes, but personal no. I had a best friend who would take great issue if I asked how much this new job was paying her, etc. Big's just a conversation between friends.

  • It'd VERY rude and personal. Not even my parents would ask me things like that!

    How much did your house cost? Not too much, or I think we got a good deal.
    How much did your car cost? Why, do you want to buy it from me?
    How much do you make? Enough, or I do ok.
