It’s unbelievable the questions that get asked of people who have a giant pimple on their face.
Now of course, young kids get a pass on this, as they have no so-called filter and are only being curious.
Young children don’t deserve to be penalized for asking blunt questions about someone’s acne.
The adult with acne can use the child’s curiosity as a learning experience for him or her — and matter of factly explain to the young one what’s going on.
But the rudest or most ignorant sounding questions come from adults – who are supposed to have a filter and much more common sense than what children have.
Sometimes, these questions are asked by strangers. That makes it even worse.
Sure, you — the recipient with acne — can fire back and ask the stranger why they’re missing hair on the top of their head or why their belly is hanging over their belt buckle.
But this article is for the adults who brazenly ask the rude questions or make the dopey comments.
If you’re standing in an elevator with one other person who has a huge pimple on their face, what could possibly compel you to ask this total stranger anything about the pimple?
Can anything be MORE unexciting and mundane to chat about? (Yes, we know, Kim Kardashian or Meghan Markle…).
If you encounter someone with a single giant pimple on their face, don’t say anything, and assume that they are highly self-conscious about it or are just plain fed up with the questions and comments.
Below are the worst offenders:
Does it hurt?
Did a bug bite you?
What’s on your face?
Did you know you have something on your face right there?
Have you ever used anything to get rid of it?
