When did asking questions become a problem?
[Disclaimer: If you don’t like questions, just close out this post.]
We aren’t allowed to ask politicians questions any longer—that’s harassment or racism or sexism or some other ism.
We can’t ask questions at work—that becomes whining.
We can’t ask questions with family—we are prying.
People of my generation ask questions.
Tough questions. Deep questions. Important questions. We even question questions.
All we’d really like are some answers.
It doesn’t matter if we like the answer or not. Just answer the question.
Is that asking too much?
