Fed UP
How often do people talk to us in code? They have an intention, but they try to cloud or cover it in rhetoric. A perfect example is the obnoxiously directing request “why don’t you?”

 

In superficial code this means “I want you to do the following, right now!”

Well, I’m fed up. I’m no longer going to play along.  I’m either going to respond with an uncoded No, procrastinate, or just not do it. I’m just fed up!

What do you think?

    I think that’s a wise strategy.

    Is this a trick question?

    Clearly you are learning networking from the film, Network. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.” I’m with you, prefer straightforward communication.

    Try “I would, but I don’t want to“. Then watch their brains sizzle a bit.

    my friendly suggestion is to "Chill Out". Not that i don't agree with you that whey can we talk in a straightforward way with each other. But there are more important things going on that you can be FED UP ABOUT!
    Fred - thanks for always making us think.
    have a great weekend all - Be Safe and Be Well

    If you suggest it, own it. That's my commentary from the back seat lol

    I swear I was just typing when Paul’s comment came up. Our kids first started saying that in high school. (well, my daughter Allie to be specific.) “Oh, I wish I could, but I don’t want to!” It was so hard not to laugh, even though I was pissed off at the same time. But no one could argue that it’s not honest! That’s become one of our family quotes, along with “you’re only as happy as your least happy child.” Another jam from Allie. Lol

    My two cents......be honest, and say what you feel!

    Saying what's on your mind is very liberating and healthy.

    Or you can always answer with the very obnoxious, "Because."

    I like the direct approach with an added "Please" in front of the direct request.
