What is the least diplomatic question you have ever been asked?

26 posts in this topic

I got married a year ago, and people have been asking non-stop if I’m pregnant. Two weeks ago someone took it to another level by asking, na, fleißig dabei? 

 

I didn’t even know how to answer. I was left with my mouth hanging open as she hopped on her bike and rode away.

Once I laughed really loudly at a joke, at the time I was really really skinny, a guy turned to me and said.

"You laughed so hard your tits fell off!" When I finally did gain a few pounds some idiot actually asked me if I had had a boob job :blink: "Are they real? Or did you get a boob job?" Seriously.

 

When I was 9 months pregnant these women walked past me in a shopping center and pointed "Das ist fett"- That is fat. I shouted back at them, that is 9 months pregnant.

 

When I was child I asked if I could have a go on this boys bike. He had one of those cool new ones that were really popular at the time. His answer was "No because you are a girl and are dressed wrong!"

A former colleague of mine was very slim and when she was pregnant she also remained quite slim (different woman carry it differently after all).  

So as to ensure that there was no doubt about her pregnancy she started wearing a scarf/bandanna around the bottom of her baby bump almost like an extended belt. 

This helped to draw your attention to the bump as well as show it off as being a baby bump and not just fat.

 

I thought that this was a very good idea and it worked well.  It also suited the way she would dress, which of course helps.

I bumped into a friend some years ago. We had worked together, but lost touch. I had met her family, and her mum was lovely.

 

Me: Hi, nice to meet. How are you and how is your mum?

Friend: I am not too well, my mother died last month.

Me: So sorry- deepest sympathies. What are you doing now and how is John? ( Twin brother)

Friend: He died in a car accident last year.

We had coffee, but I was afraid to ask any more questions.
