The Bugging “Or”

 

Yes or No. True or False. Affirm it or Deny It. These are sets of choices to answer questions which are supposed to be dapat madali na lang nasasagot.

“Alam mo ba gumawa ng .ksh?” –yes or no.

“Nag-update ka ba ng time tracker spreadsheet?” –yes or no.

“May bf/gf ka na daw?” –true or false.

“Alam ko kung sino yung tinutukoy mo..” –affirm it? Or Deny it.

These are only a few of those questions we are asked that only require a yes or a no reply, a confirmation whether some thing is true or not, or an affirmation. These, as mentioned by Bob Ong sa isa sa mga libro nya eh mga tanong na kapag itinanong syo isa lang sa dalawa un isasagot mo at di na kelangan ng explanation. Say, for example..hehe.. one time.. tinanong ako ng lead ko nung unang tanong.. hehe..sagot ko “run lang.”..o diba, isa pa akong toinks-toinks… hehehe.. o kaya dun sa next example question, tpos isasagot natin “kanina pa.”..ang tanong ay kung nag-update ka na ba –oo o hindi., at hindi kelan ka nag-update ng time tracker.. hehehhe!

Minsan naman, mas gugustuhin mo pang wala sa dalawang choices un sagot sa’yo tipong nagexplain sya. Kesa naman sa “hanging” ang sagot.. tipong tawa lang ang isasagot sayo.. Eto minsan yun nakakabitin or let say nakakainis kase hindi mo alam kung ano ba, totoo ba o hindi totoo? Sya nga ba o hindi sya?.. gets niyo po..?

Haaay.. I’m just ..hmm. I dunno.. punta tayo sa last example question ko.. and actually this has been “bugging” me for how many days already… when someone just laughed at something you said (referring to the last example question), what does the “laughing” mean?.. was it an affirmation na “oo tama yun nga..” or “hahaha..bahala ka mag-isip jan, anyways hindi naman un yun noh”

.it would be hard for you to judge what the laughing meant kase it would shempre depend on kung ano ba yung pinag-usapan. . pero..just the same, what do you think why would someone prefer to just reply with a laugh to the statement, and didn’t bother explain. He or she just laughed.. and that was it..

*sigh*
