Are you an American?
What's your religion?
Is your mother Black or is it your dad?
How much money do you make?
I heard you're getting married. Are you pregnant?
What nationality are you?
Have you gained weight?
Do you have cancer?
Your kids don't look anything like each other -- do they have the same father?
I got to thinking about rudeness after reading a post over at the Field Negro about how often people with less than lily-white skin get asked about their ethnicity. I thought it was bad just getting asked occasionally if I'm Canadian, thanks to my Yooper accent. (Answer: No, but there are a lot of days when I wish I was.) It must truly suck to have people quizzing you about whether or not you're Haitian/Mexican/Native American/Samoan/whatever simply because you're not a blue eyed blonde.
So what's the rudest question anyone's ever asked you?
[The appropriate answer to all rude questions, of course, as all the advice mavens can tell you, is a simple "Why do you want to know?" followed, if they persist, by "It's none of your business."]
