Why ask why?

Reply Wed 10 Jul, 2019 01:42 pm
This is driving me insane!! Every time I ask my boyfriend a question, no matter what question it is, he answers my question followed with why. Ahhhgggghg
It’s beyond frustrating! Now most times I will explain why I asked what I did. But other times it’s simple questions like “ What’s today?” Him: “Wednesday, why”
Can someone pls help me out before I yank all my hair out. It’s not like he’s 2 years old. He’s a 40 year old man. 😫😫😫

Personally, I would use it as an opportunity for snark (but then again, I snark for sport).

“What’s today?”
Him: “Wednesday, why?”
"Oh, it's my day to meet my lover." (grab car keys) "Don't wait up!"

"Do you think it'll rain?"
Him: "No, why?"
"When it rains, the lawn zombies come out, and I don't feel like being bitten today."

"Where are my shoes?"
"In the hall closet, why?"
"Oh good; that's how I remember where the dead body's buried. You know, my last boyfriend. Nick was fun." (give evil look) "Until he wasn't."

If you can pull it off, he'll see how idiotic he sounds, and he'll knock it off. Or he'll do it just to see what you'll come up with.

In high school, whenever we asked a very annoying (usually useless and nitpicky and unanswerable question about why this grammar rule or that grammar rule or whatever thing French) to our French teacher, she'd always replay, "Parce qu'il neige." [Because it snows.]

Real world surrealism.

She sounds like an idiom, "où".
