Asking All Them Questions?

   Who, What, When, Where, and Why? Those are the 5W’s that people are always asking. Seems a little nosy, if you ask me. It’s okay to ask sometimes but really, why do you need to know?
    You mainly get these questions from your parents, family members, or your friends. They ask because they want to make sure everything is good on your end. My mama is always asking me questions everyday, all day. She wants to know everything! If I ask her to go to a party, she starts with all these questions, which just irritates me. It makes me not even want to go anymore. But that’s what mamas do and they are the one person that you do owe an explanation to.
    Family has a problem with asking all these
Askin All Them Questions questions too. Sometimes, they just don’t understand. The older you get, the more questions they begin to ask. Every time you go around them it seems like they ask you the same questions over and over again. It’s like they didn’t understand the first time you answered them. However, you need them there for you because they are your support team and if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t know a lot of things.
I believe that people just want to be in your
business because their life isn’t that interesting so they want to see what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with so that they can try and do the same. Some questions don’t even need to be asked. Especially if it wasn’t directed towards you. People are always saying that they have their own lives to worry about but they really care more about yours than their own. In my mind, you don’t have to answer anybody that doesn’t put money in your pockets, food on the table, or that’s trying to enhance your life.
    I’m not saying that I’m perfect because I do ask a lot of questions and without questions we wouldn’t have any answers. All I am trying to say is, stop asking so many questions which are none of your business!
