Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker DesertRose: "What question do people ask you frequently that you hate or are tired of answering? (For example, when people find out I majored in English, I can just about put money on the fact that their next question is going to be "Do you/are you going to teach?") (Of course, only answer this if it's not upsetting or triggering or anything like that; in asking, I'm thinking more of annoying questions like the example from my life than anything else.)"

"How do you do your job day after day?" I hate the question, because normally the people who ask it don't really want to hear the answer. They want to hear some feminist superhero shit about how I'm impervious to pain, instead of the real answer: With lots of stress and trauma.
