Can I Ask You a Question?

One of the worst phrases in the English language is: “Can I ask you a question?” You are asking for permission to ask them something when you might not have permission to ask them something. What if they don’t want you to ask them anything? It’s more accurate to say: “Can I ask you something other than this current question?” It’s a little longer and more awkward but at least now you’re not assuming it’s ok to ask them questions other than the current one.

I need a hobby.
