Funny replies when someone asks you a personal question

What to say when you don't want to answer a personal question

Some folks know that is not socially acceptable to ask personal questions, but they go ahead and ask anyway. These nosy people seem to think that the rules of social etiquette don’t apply to them.

You have no obligation to explain the personal details of your life to anyone, especially people who can’t respect personal boundaries. Maybe you have a narcissistic relative or acquaintance who tramples all over your feelings and won’t take no for an answer. Other people’s lack of empathy is not your problem, if you want to keep certain areas of your life private, you have a right to do so.

The office gossip found out that Rebecca and her boyfriend had split up and kept pestering her for the details. It was bad enough that she was feeling emotionally fragile from the breakup but she and felt like if she started talking about she might start crying.

Since they knew mutual people, Rebecca had concerns that everything she said would trickle back to her Ex-boyfriend. Over coffee, in the lunchroom, she was interrogated several times but her coworker finally got the hint that she wasn’t going to share any personal information, that was none of her damn business.
