What Not To Answer

When asked:

Fine, so at the light I make a left?

Don't answer:

Right.


When asked:

Should I take the ladder or the stairs?

Don't answer:

The latter.

It will just confuse people.

  2. Thank You Doni for those kind words.
    In response to your question, you should probably tell the person that a question mark does not belong in a word (ladde?r). Once they solve that issue, we can talk about what you should tell them.

  3. KingJimmy9 - such a name rings a bell from my younger years. Either way, if the questioned is phrased "I should make a left, right?", than is it appropriate to answer "right"?

  4. Momoney152 - that name also rings a bell. And in response to your question: right.
