    The one not asked!

    In the last few weeks I have seen this in post and wanted to jus say that we have all been there and have all had the same question it is the one that asked it that it gets answered.

    Ok forgive me for this one. I was told this in school and have lived this my whole life. We may see the same question over and over again but I will tell you the first few times I may not pay attention but it will be that one time that I decide to read the entire post that I DO LEARN something new.

    So to all the newbies and oldies and goodies we all started in the same boat do not feel like the question you ask is dumb.

    Have a great day quilting!!!

    Oh, I don't know; I've asked some "lulu's" in my lifetime...

    I'm constantly telling folks that I would rather have them ask me the same question 15 times than mess up once.

    Anybody that says there are no dumb questions has never worked customer service.

    I told a 20something guy one time that it would be 8 to 15 days for his refund check to get there. He asked me "so how long is that?"

    When I was young (many, many years ago) I was always afraid to ask a question. Now since I am much more vocal, when I don't understand something I speak up and ask. Yes, I get funny looks but I have certainly learned more since I started asking "dumb" questions.

    I was brought up being told "The only stupid question is the one you don't ask" so no one should feel silly asking anything how else can we learn? Not all of us catch it the first time either!

    Everyone starts out "dumb" in every situation in life. What one does with the answers one receives is the key.

    Sorry I have to disagree just a little bit about this....DH asked me "do you really need all that fabric?" ONE time and realized how dumb a question it was when he caught my evil eye. :D

    Other than that, yes I agree!

    lol so funny! Ok, there could be questions that have already been answered but I am one who will ask questions just to have it repeated so I don't forget.... but I usually forget anyway and will have to ask you again later. LOL luckily there is a search on this message board for when I have THOSE kind of days LOL
