A few more questions that I never dignify with an answer:

"So do you guys party alot?"

'What are some of your secrets?"

"Do you guys have a secret hand shake?"

"Did you have to eat weird things to get in?"

"So you are one of those people who had to buy friends during college?"

I get the "I can't believe YOu were in a sorority" comment a lot. It drives me nuts.

I also hate the "I didn't have to buy my friends" statement. I try explaining that dues were NOT buying your friends, blah blah blah - but it never works.

When I get the "buying your friends" question my response if I like the person is:

Remember when you were a kid and your family had you in Sports, Dance, The Band, Day Care, etc... Or how about when you moved into the new neighborhood. Well guess what all of those things cost money as well. So every friend that you ever made were paid for in some form or another. The Sports line usually takes guys by surprise and i have actually used it on quite a few rush guests.

In my most recent cases with the buying your friends, these are from the adult people who would have paid for all those teams and lessons.

It's just a pathetic thing to say, worse still to believe it.

There's been a chapter of AEPi at my school for quite a few years.

I joined a local sorority. During my sophomore year, we became a colony, and later a chapter, of AEPhi.

Two of the stupid questions I got when wearing letters were, "Oh, you're an AEPi little sister?" and "Oh, when did AEPi go coed?"

You would think that at an engineering school, people would be able to tell the difference between the letters pi and phi.

Depends on which org I repped

APO: someone, usually an NPHC Greek looking at my letters. Invariably, they ask those two dreaded words:

"What's that?"

Me, being the smart-aleck that I was, usually reply in two simple words: "A fraternity". If I got probed for more details, I would say, www.apo.org. Check us out". My first 7-8 years I couldn't refer them to a website, because either it didn't exist, or the URL (at that time) was incredibly long and difficult to remember. My alternate answer was to inquring OSU students: Room 327 Ohio Union. Stop by and check us out.

I think after 80+ years of existing, some of the simplest things you can find out for yourself.

Kappa: Fortunately, I have not been asked one inane question--YET!

Except perhaps by NIC/IFC Greeks, when they see the letters, they ask, "Is that a new fraternity?", to which I reply, "Yup! 96 years new."

But as a Kappa, for the most part, I have been relatively question-free.

Here are some of my "favorites":

1. "What is that? A-O-N?" (I actually had a guy in a Latino fraternity ask me this )

2. "What did they make you do to get in?"

3. "Ohhhh. You're one of those." (usually from a Latina/o who is not involved with greek life)

Word.

Even to exist in society, you have to pay money or some sort of fee. It's called taxes.
