One of the best things about the holiday season is seeing relatives you may not see a lot during the rest of the year, but one of the worst things if having to answer a lot of uncomfortable questions, sometimes the same ones over and over again. 17-year-old Arianna Simon came up with a solution for that: a FAQ pamphlet.
She first started handing these out during Thanksgiving after she had a conversation with her mom about always having to answer the same questions. Her mom joked that she could make a handout for the family, and was shocked when she actually produced one.
If you refrain from asking me these questions that I have nicely provided you the answers to, we will have a happy and loving holiday season! Thank you!
College: I have not decided where I want to go to college. Ideally, I’d be at UConn. But unfortunately, I have to get in first. The average GPA is just a little bit above mine. If I do not get it, I may go to RCC and transfer.
Boyfriends: No, I do not have a boyfriend right now, regardless of what my mom may have told you.
Age: I turned 17 in October . . yes I know time flies. I have also gotten taller, that happens when you grow up.
Relatives: You might be my third cousin, but no – I do not remember you.
What do you think? Is this a good idea, or is it a little rude? What questions would you put on your pamphlet?
