It’s so rude when they ask how I hurt my hand

0

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I suffered an injury that resulted in the necessity of several surgeries and a large cast on my hand for a period of several months (and counting).

Since my accident, I have literally not left the house a single time without at least one person asking me what happened. I find it very rude and invasive, and why would strangers want to know my medical history, anyway?

I usually respond with a terse “I had an accident” or “I injured my hand” and leave it at that. But some people then continue to press for specifics.

I am at a loss as to how to respond to their rude question without resorting to rudeness myself. “None of your business. Quit being nosy” is what I feel like saying (but wouldn’t).
