21 Questions You Never Want Your Family To Ask

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… when your relatives get to ask every question they’ve been saving up for the previous 12 months.

1. “Are you dating anyone?”

We’re Facebook friends, grandma. You already know the answer to this.

2. “Whatever happened to [insert your ex’s name here]?”

3. “So, Obamacare has been a total disaster, amiright?”

Oh good, the obnoxious gloating I ordered is here.

4. “How has the weight loss been going?”

Sorry, can’t hear you over the sound of pie.

5. “Are you still a vegetarian/vegan?”

My diet preferences are not a coat, I’m not going to outgrow them.

6. “Can you figure out how to get our iPhones to do [something that’s either basic, or actually impossible]?”


Please stop trying to put the USB plug into the wall socket, ma.

7. “What do you think is going to happen to that Edward Snowden asshole?”



That’s really a question for Russia, grandpa.

8. “Can you stay longer?”

No amount of sad puppy looks are going to get me out of this flight change fee.

I do, and I completely hate myself for it.

11. “You’re coming to church with us, right?”

This question is twice as fun when your SO is in the room.

13. “So, what’s the dating scene like out there?”



It’s a tragedy.

14. “When can we come visit you?”

You can come when all ten of you can fit on the same crappy pull-out couch.

15. “I hear your Twitter is hilarious. Can I follow you?”

Sure, let me just delete everything on it.

16. “How is your job going/how have your grades been?”


BRB, hitting imaginary eject button.

17. “Will you come watch [a movie that we don’t know has a sex scene] with us?”

Don’t mind me, I’m just going to take a convenient bathroom break 42 minutes in.

18. “When do you plan on giving us grandchildren?”

If you ask for that one more time, we are turning around this car and going straight home, mom.
