What are some dumb questions you have been asked?
I work for a semiconductor company which makes electronic chips. On being asked about what I do, I once told to one of my aunts that after completing my electronics engineering, I had started working in a chip designing company.
After a pause for few seconds, she asked:
"What are your most popular flavors? Are the chips as good as Lays??"
I had no idea what to say.
Conversation with a girl on the Subway in NYC :
Her:"Are you from India?"
Her:"Really unfair how we Americans just start talking about Slumdog Millionaire everytime we talk to an Indian"
Me(Surprised because I'd never heard that before):"Ya, that's really annoying"
Her:"I mean India isn't all slums. I was in Dubai last year, you guys lead a pretty luxurious lifestyle, dunno why only word about slums goes around"
Me - "huh??"
Her:"I guess its mainly because of states like Pakistan and Bangladesh!"
Me – speechless
"Are you sleeping?"
The most illogical question that every student in India must have been asked by his/her teacher:
"Homework kaisa bhul gaye ? Kabhi khaana khana bhulte ho ?"
"How did you forget doing your homework? Do you ever forget eating food ?"
Just doesn't make sense.
