The most annoying question you get . . .

  1. Everyone must have one or two questions that they get asked fairly regularly, and that are just a plain pain in the derriere, here's my two

    "Why dont you drink?" - (to which i say buzz off, why do you drink, got a good one the other day, you should drink again, you were more fun as a drunk :eyebrow: )

    "Are you gay" - (always get this from one of my mums friends who thinks im gay because i dont sleep around, which is ironic, because my mum thinks im a slut, i am neither a slut or gay tho :rollno: )


    This thread may work, or maybe its only me who gets this aggravated.

  5. I used to get that all the time when my hair had just been dyed and was spiked
     
  6. I get that one a lot too. Except I've never been drunk, so people don't know if I'm any better drunk:)
     
  7. What are those things in your ears? (I have stretched ear lobes)

    Awesome dude. :)

    In my bands Limozeen and Lazor, I get asked:

    "Aren't basses only supposed to have 4 strings?"

    "Is that a Westone?" - With a nod to the W on my headstock :rollno:

    "Why don't you get a bigger amp?" - Referring to the Eden WT400, which is only a half rack space wide... haha

    "Why do you stack your speakers like that?" - I have a pair of 210s that I stack on their sides, so the 10s are in a vertical row/line array.

    "How do you fit all that into your car???" - Until recently, I had 5 basses, a 4-space rack case, a rolling backpack, a Genz-Benz 410T-XB, and a Genz-Benz 210T-XB, all of which I managed to fit into the back seat and trunk of my Pontiac 6000.

    My personal favorite question though:

    "Are you seeing anyone?" ;)

    How tall are you?

    I mean, I'm only 6'4", but everyone thinks I'm a giant. I'm too tall to be normal height, but not tall enough to be considered tall by people that actually are.

    Could you watch your head while I put you in the back of the squad?

    Do you understand these rights as I've read them to you?
