Looking for funny responses to everyday questions? I don’t blame you, I’ve had it up to my neck with annoying, repetitive, shallow everyday questions – and I often respond with something funny, silly, or sarcastic to make it known.
There is nothing wrong with responding with a funny or witty remark if you’re getting annoyed with repetitive questions.
If someone is going to ask you the same old everyday questions, I don’t think I’m being unreasonable when I say they’re probably just going through the motions and not really interested in your answer.
Firing back with something a little funny or witty will make them take notice!
Here are some funny, witty, snarky, smart, and sarcastic responses to some of those annoying everyday questions it’s hard to avoid:

Why Give a Funny Response to an Everyday Question?
Everyone has a different sense of humor. Some people are going to find your witty responses funny, and some people aren’t.
Is this your problem?
No, not really. But it does help if you ‘know your audience’ when responding to someone. You’re not going to use the same response to your dad as you would your best friend, right?
I guess what I’m trying to say is, pick your response carefully based on who you’re talking to.
But if you’re getting fed up with always being asked the same questions, you shouldn’t feel bad about giving a funny or witty reply.
Otherwise, how are people going to get the message that you don’t want to keep answering the same questions with the same half-hearted answers?
On the plus side, a little humor injected into someone’s day can have a positive impact on their otherwise average day!
Good luck – feel free to drop me a comment below if you have any funny responses I should add to the list, and do let me know if you get any memorable responses back.
