Have you ever been asked a question but it's phrased as an order?

    "Would you hurry up and do the dishes already?" That's a pretty common one when  living with roommates. LOL

    When I get to ramling on and on, someone is bound to say, "Won't you PLEASE shut up?"

    oh hells yeah. It's all about inflection! Without that raised note at the end--it's an order, sistah! smile

    I believe everyone has encountered that before. In his book, "I'm OK, You're OK", Thomas A Harris talks about the four positions (based on ego states):
    1. I'm Not OK, You're OK
    2. I'm Not OK, You're Not OK
    3. I'm OK, You're Not OK
    4. I'm OK, You're OK.

    The one who phrased a question as an order is taking the position of "I'm OK, You're Not OK".
