Disabled Etty Ket

Dear Queenie,
I have a condition that makes me have to use a cane for walking. Lots of times someone will ask me if I’m OK, which I don’t mind, but then some of them will ask me what my problem is.
Queenie, is there such a thing as a polite way to tell them to MYOB?—Disabled Etty Ket

Dear Etty Ket,
When someone asks whether you are okay, thank them for their concern. But if they go on to ask you what your problem is, ask them in return (as politely as you can manage), “Why would you ask me such a personal question?” and walk away.
