Now we should change "how to bother people or cause they feel bad about themselves".

First Question:
You're participating in a race. You overtake the scond person. What position are you in?
Second Question:(Don't take as much time as you took for the first question)
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now if there's a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

The confusing ones
2nd, 1st (you just lapped them), just ask him to get you sunglass because you aren't mute, you are blind

btw, Mary's a transsexual, the last daughter is Nunu

edit: just saw average's answer for the 2nd one, guess that'd be the correct one.

I still don't get how you could overtake the last person.

If you were to overtake them, that would mean you being behind them, and going in front of them. But you would have to be behind the last person to do that, making yourself last, but how do you overtake yourself?

You lapped them, on a circular track; that's why I thought you would have to be first, because if you overtake the last person (which indicates the position they held before you passed them), then that means either you had to be last and now they are last or you lapped them. Seems that the wording indicates what I said.

1000+40+1000+30+1000+20+1000=4090

4090 + 10 = 4100
