The Why Don't Yous

I don't know why some of us never think twice telling others what they should or shouldn't do, despite not knowing each other well and quick to ask the "Why Don't You" questions when someone doesn't do things like you do.

Don't get offended if your "Why Don't You"s to me gets you a cold shoulder or a stinging answer. I don't suffer fools gladly.

Why Don't You Get  A Better Car?
Why? You plan to pay for it? What's wrong with our 7-year old car anyway? What's the need for better/flashier car? To show off when we go "balik kampung"?

Can I ask you "Why don't you buy a car fitting to your financial status" instead? Especially when you whine about not being able to make ends meet and bitching about the company because the company pays you a "measly" salary?

Why Don't You Buy A Landed House? Apartments aren't comfortable
You go on live in your terraced house (barricaded, if I might add) and I go on living in my cheap apartment. Deal?

Why Don't You Have Another Child
Why don't you? Oh? You are too old? Well, don't you think I have my reasons too? Oh, you are offended? Have you ever stop to think that you might offend me too? No. Oh.

Have another one lah... at least got spare
Children are like spare parts, is it? One gone and you can easily replace with another?

Why Don't You Cook? Learn To Cook lah!
Just because I never invite you to come to my house to eat, doesn't mean I can't cook. And just because my husband doesn't want me to go all tired and "kelam-kabut" cooking and eating late dinners on weekdays and eat out instead, doesn't mean I cannot cook!

You can cook? What do you know to cook?
Why do you want to know? I am not interested to be your daughter-in-law.

Why Don't You Go To Gym. Don't be lazy. See, I lost a lost of weight recently, going to gym
Ooooooo I'm lazy ah? I guess clocking 40-50KM of mileage weekly does constitute as being lazy as I'm not doing the hip thing as going to the gym for my workout.

You continue with your elliptical machine workouts and I continue with my run. OK? Anyways, good for you to learn the word cardio recently. Do you know what it means?

Why Don't You Chill?
I love to chill but I can't stand you telling me what I should or shouldn't do especially when it doesn't affect you!

This, folks, is today's rant. An accumulation of "Why Don't You"s to me, and this rant was triggered by this:
You still jog? Why Don't You Cycle Instead Of Jog? I think it's better.
Why should I?
Should I ask you "Why Don't You Do Something About Your Beer Belly" instead?
But I won't because it's none of my business.

But thank you for caring.

  3. Answer..."Because I'm a happy, contented person who lives how they want. Why do you care? Because you're not happy with your own life? Oh well, maybe you should sort that out first...". Ha.

  24. Yup the spare one really tops it off. *shakes head*

    Annoys me too to hear ppl asking these mindless questions. For me the most popular one is "Why don't you get married?" like it's as easy as going to the shop and buying a loving, caring, kind, good-hearted husband!

    1. first they ask you about getting married. Then after married, they ask about having children. After first child, then ask about second one. It's endless.

    1. And the best thing is, no matter what we answer them; the answers are not good enough for their standard.

      Or they take offense. huh

  26. The one that takes the cake, in my opinion, is the spare child. Oh gosh!

    All this nudging reminds me of a joke. Maybe you've heard of it. Anyway, here's the gist of it. This unmarried lady has been getting hints and nudges from old aunties, friends of the family at weddings they attend.

    One particular aunty would incessantly ask, "When's your turn?" hinting that she should be getting married already at her age.

    Tired of all that, she decided to put a stop to it. So, at a funeral, she decided to give the aunty a dose of her own medicine. She asked the aunty the same question, "When's your turn?".

    2. Lina, I'm on Africa time with this comment. Gomen, ne, I'm a bit snowed under at work.

      So anyway why don't you write more Sky Tree posts??? :D

      Have a spare child? Yikes. How about a spare husband? I can have that, too?

      PS: I hate these questions too.

      Delete
    3. Spare husband? Tempting. LOL

      But then again, plenty of husbands here with "spare" wives.

      Sorry about my Malaysian time in answering this!

      A bit pre-occupied these two days. hu~
