Relatives ”love” asking annoying question on Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is coming soon, and it supposed to be an exciting festival for Chinese. However a lot of young people feel anxious during Chinese New Year. Because during the festival young people will be asked uncountable annoying questions by relatives and ”friends”. Here are 3 questions that young people usually being asked.

1. How is your grades? / How is your kid’s grades?

If you are a student or your kid is a student in China you definitely  will be asked this question. I’ve been through since I was 6 years old till I graduated from high school.

2. How much is your salary?

If you think you can finally enjoy your holiday since you are not a student anymore, and you are wrong. If you have a job now, and you will be asked this question. It’s not enough to tell your salary because they will ask you more questions like do you own a car? When will you buy a house?

3. Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?

If you answered Yes, and then they will ask you when are you going to married.

If you answered NO, and they will ask you why you don’t find a boyfriend/girlfriend, and tell you that you should find someone/ I know someone is good and let me introduce him/her to you.

After being through ”interrogation” every year, a lot of young people came up some ideas to deal with those annoying relatives. But being asked plenty of private questions  is so annoying, and this circumstance not only happened in China but also happened in some places of Asia.

    Reading these three Questions, I totally feel being always asked during Spring Festival. In the past, when I was still studying in school, the first question was the most commonly come across. When I graduated from high school, it turns to the third one. Actually, they are still bothering me now!!!

    I liked your article ! Very funny. I had similar experiences. At each family meeting, people ask the same questions : How is your grades? / Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?. However, in France, French people do not speak about their salary. It’s something private 😉
