This morning a new reader sent me the screenshot below from what must be a dating site. He wanted to know whether he had a valid reason to be annoyed with the “What do you do?” question, as it appears in the message.
I have shared my annoyance with the “What do you do?” question on more than one occasion before, especially when it was the first question asked. However, I never realized that it sounds even worse and more lame when it pops up randomly and for no good reason in the middle of an otherwise normal conversation or a message. It just begs for one big WTF.
