Okay, this really ticks me off. I wear glasses. Why the F^%$ do people ask me, " hey man, why do you wear glasses?" It seems to me that it should be pretty dam self explainatory. Are people really that stupid that they can't figure out if a person has glasses on they must need them to see? I am asked this question all the time. When I respond to them that I have poor eye sight and need them to see, they always seem somewhat surprised. What is the most stupid question that you all get asked regularly?

When someone asks me why I wear glasses, I just tell them the old wives tale is true about going blind and I stopped just in time.

Remember the old Bill Engvall bits, "There's your sign"?

A couple of weeks ago Bob and I were taking things out of the truck- kayaks, fishing rods, backpacks, a tacklebox, at a bay in the Gulf of Mexico. As I lifted up my net to put in the kayak, an older gentleman walking his dog stopped and watched. He said, "Going fishing?"

Um, no. We're just taking all of our fishing gear for a ride. It doesn't get out much.

I'm just a white guy who lives in a predominantly white area. I also happen to have a hispanic last name. When people find out what my last name is, I often get the question, "So, what are you?"

I know what they're asking, so I answer, "I'm a ****ing American, what the **** are you?" I don't mind people asking out of curiosity, but there's a polite way to do it, and an ignorant way.

Maybe you've got some funky-looking specs? They might be wondering why you don't wear contacts just so you won't look like such a goober.

I ride a motorcylce, and when I pull up to work in it I'm often asked, "wow! Is that yours?"

Nope. Just found it it the alley. Looked fun. Here's your sign.

I used to ride a motorcycle, and remember getting the question - do you ride a motorcycle? When seen carrying my helmet. "No, I just fall down a lot. "

Are you sure they aren't asking looking to get an answer like "near sighted" "far sighted" "astigmatism"? I also know two people that wear glasses with no-script lenses just for looks.
