The Most Annoying Questions for People From Each State

No matter where you're from, you're subject to stereotypes about your home state. Thrillist has collected some of the most obnoxious questions people love to ask people from each state in an effort to stop some of these horrible stereotypes -or at least stop people from having to hear about them every single day.

For some states, there are certainly more than one over-asked question although Thrillist only lists one per state. So if you have any you think should be added, feel free to add them into the comments.

I'd say for Calfornia, an obvious addition would be "so how far are you from LA?" Of course, when you leave the country, that question immediately evolves into "do you know any movie stars?" Because despite the fact that California is larger than all of Italy, and that Los Angeles is one of the most populous cities in the world, yes, we all live in a tiny city and know each other quite well.
