Why do people ask dumb questions and then get mad when their given a dumb answer??

My loving, dear partner had the nerve to actually ask me if I put laundry soap in the washing machine, with the dirty clothes. So I ended up giving her a snotty comment(I don't even know what said). But it irritated to high heaven. I hate when she does this.....because my mom does the same crap to me too!!!

  • I hear ya,its almost an insult to your intelligence. I probally would've said something sarcastic right back at her.

  • I think you should tell her not to hover over your actions because it makes you really upset.

  • LOL!!! Well, I guess she didn't think it was a dumb question. Or, she wasn't thinking? Maybe SHE forgot to once, and was projecting, and was actually hoping YOU had forgotten too. So she wouldn't feel so bad. IDK. But, if she does it often, not just this time, then I guess it's just her nature. I'd say make a game out of it, and turn it around. I would. Maybe she will stop.

  • I think I will try that Raine, but I do have the distinct feeling that she will just get b*tchy with me. I dislike it sooooo much!!!! To the point where one dumb ? will put me in a bad mood for the rest of the day(I hate being mad at her because it breaks my heart, and I internally cry about it) but she just won't stop doing it!!

  • Personally, I'm not seeing why asking that question would upset you so much. But hey, that's me.

  • rolling on floorsorry but that struck my funny bone.  straight women marry their dads and you seem to have married your mom!


    sorry... Im sure it IS frustrating but it just really hit me as funny when you said she does the same thing as your mom.  just breath deep and remember all the wonderful things she does... Im sure there are many.

  • It's not the question itself that bothers me it's the fact that she asks me dumb questions all the time and it drives me crazy!!

  • Oh yeah trust me SAH I've DEFINITELY come to that conclusion. I am marrying my mother. Lol they are so alike it's sickening. But I ALWAYS knew that my future spouse would be like my mother because me and my mom are best friends.
