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!
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".
