Home » stating the obvious

Some people have a talent for asking the obvious. You probably know the type. You have an appointment to meet them and when you get there, they greet you with “Did you find it?” Well obviously I’m there, aren’t I? Or you come in soaking wet and they ask you if it’s raining. No, I just like to go outside, throw a bucket of water over myself and come back in. That’s just my thing. These are entirely superfluous questions that seem to serve no function and they puzzle me. How am I supposed to respond when some is asking the obvious?
