"....does that hurt?"

I think at some point in a modders life they have been asked those 3 words somewhere, sometime.

Just picture it
You're sitting there, just minding your own business, probably thinking about something completely random like what you're gonna have for dinner when....

DID THOSE HURT? *Insert pointy finger to area where there is mod*
Honestly when that happens to me, I panic slightly! Mainly because they've distracted me from my daydream and left me in a confused and slightly vulnerable position. Its not fun to be hurled back into reality when you're off in you're own world.
You go blank.
Maybe uhmm and ahh a bit.

Then, and only then you answer.
"No, it didn't hurt"
Now, Common sense denotes that a 'no' answer means no.  However in the world of mods, no isn't an answer when people ask that question. Its just an opening to a whole new series of questioning.
"Really!? Cause I would've thought it'd hurt cause its like a hole in your face..blahblahblahblah"
Now, I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels slightly uncomfortable at this point. You've been rudely awoken from your daydream, answered their question which frankly you are getting sick to the bone of people asking you, and THEN they still keep on asking you questions. God dammint stranger, I just want to get back to my fucking daydream, I don't want you to keep asking me stupid questions. Yes, I've got a piercing, get the fuck over it, stop asking me shit, LEAVE ME ALONE, THERES KFC IN MY DAYDREAM AND I'D LIKE TO GET BACK TO IT AT SOMEPOINT THIS CENTURY. *crys inside*

However, typically people are polite. We can think that inside, but on the outside we just smile, and repeat what we just said, praying that they'll leave you alone at some point.

It just isn't good enough though is it? D:
There have been times where I've had to sit there for 10 minutes pretty much being asked the same question over and over and over again just in different ways. Theres only so many times you can say 'Yes it did hurt or No, It didn't' But it just doesn't seem to work. No or Yes isn't a good enough answer, they want pain scales, amounts of tears or the knowledge that you're a doublehard bastard.
Jesus christ, don't you understand what No or Yes means? D:
Soon you get to the point where you just go 'Okay, I've told you everything, nice speaking to you' then finally retreat back into your mental daydream bliss which is as far away from reality as possible :3

If they back off you at this point, you are one of the lucky ones...
Give it 5 minutes then you'll feel that oh so similar tap on the shoulder....
And then you're back to square one .___.
Its quite amazing what someone with mods has to go through on a daily basis. If you're not getting insulted, you're getting questioned. If you're not getting questioned, then you're getting funny looks.

All of that for a piece of metal through the skin or a picture tattooed on the skin.

....The general public really can be stupid, can't they?
Seems like they stopped teaching common sense in schools and just started bringing in ignorance and stupidity!
