Questions

– Will you do it?
– It’s complicated Jim, see I…
– I asked you a yes or no question, Jack. The explanation could be complicated but the answer itself is fairly simple. You only have two options, wouldn’t you agree?
– Listen, the thing is…
– Again you failed to answer a yes or no question Jack. You seem to have a problem with these. Would you prefer me to ask you to explain the current political crisis in Belgium?
– No.
– My, my. You have no idea how pleased I am with your progress Jack! This gives me high expectations. Are you as excited as I am?
– Jim, how many times have I told you to stop acting like this?
– No time to get into rhetorical questions at this time, Jack, yes or no questions appear to be hard enough. By the way, by posing that question of yours you’ve given me the feeling you still need more training. And I don’t feel like going through that right now. Do we need to train on this now, Jack?
– No.
– So you feel you are ready to answer my initial question now?
– Yes.
– Good! So again, will you do it?
– No.
– Ok. Why not?
– Listen, it’s complicated…
– I gathered as much. Please… go on.
