I sent a txt to my wife:

"I'm going to Fast Wok for lunch and then coming home. DO you want me to pick something up for you?"

She answered:

"I love you sounds fun!"

Inquiring minds want to know:
1) Did she answer my question?
1a) If so, what was her answer?
2) Why the fuck do people have problems answering questions?

Poll
What did she answer?
Yes, I would like you to pick me up lunch.
No, I do not want you to pick me up lunch.
Other - I'm having a stroke and don't care to provide you the simple answer you asked for.

1) Technically, yes she did.
1a) "Pick something up" is kind of vague, so that's really on you. What normally sounds fun to your wife? Picking up a board game? Picking up another guy? Picking up your fucking laundry for once in your goddamn life? I'm not being judgmental, I just don't know what passes for "fun" in your household.
2) Move it a little further to the left. Its blocking the view of those oversized purple Twinkies.

Did you ask ChitChat if maybe we would like some Fast Wok?
No. No you didn't.
Now we're not speaking with you.
(Unless you bring us Fast Wok.)

I think it was yes, although unless she always gets the same thing at Fast Wok she certainly owed you more information.

Vague answers allow for more open-ended interpretation of the results. Depending on her mood you can now be in trouble whether you bring Fast Wok or not. I think wive's thrive on this sort of thing.

I already have an understanding with my wife. I told her in no uncertain terms that "Yes I do want something to eat and always get me what you get yourself if I don't answer the phone or SMS." It's on a post-it note on the fridge along with "vegetable's I will eat, and those that I won't". I find specifics are always the best in a marriage.

I am pretty sure "Fast Wok" is a not very subtle euphemism, and your wife's response was both appropriate and awesome.

I just hope you delivered.

Seems like she did. She said she loves you and that loving you sounds fun! If I were you, I'd pick up the dish at Fast Wok with the highest alcohol content and prepare myself for a romantic evening.

Edit: ninja'd by Chris. Sort of.

She thought you meant fast walk and she's glad you're finally moving your lazy ass out of the house and getting some exercise.

I'm not exactly sure how, but my woman-foo tells me she is expecting you to pick her up and take her to Fast Wok.

Anything else will be met with a lingering resentment.

In order to answer fairly, we need to know if she has a regular order here. My wife, for example, only has about 1 (maybe 2) dishes that she regularly gets at a particular restaurant, so if I asked her if I oculd pick her up something, and she just said yes, I'd pretty much know what she wanted.

If your wife has more variation in her tastes, well, it may need some more info. (But if that was the case, I'd have been tempted to get her something bizarre and say "Here, I picked you up something. You like pickled octopus, right?")

I once posted here that my chosen superhero power would be the ability to communicate with women.

I took a bit of a beating, but I stand by it. Especially now that my daughters are in high school.

Nowadays we use database values - so possible answers are yes, no, and null.

Respect the NULL !

The real questions here are:
a) Did you pick up lunch?
b) If you did not, what was her reaction?

Making a purchase at local grocery yesterday. As cashier is ringing in the items, the slide track on the debit card machine starts flashing. so I ask the cashier if I can "go ahead (and swipe my card), or should I wait". Cashier answers, "Go ahead and wait".

Shit. You. Not. shakeshakeshake

Additional information:

Previous customer experienced serious difficulty with aforementioned debit card machine.
