@Jewbacchus @bruja Oh god, same. This is the one thing KJ and I ever bicker about, is that he doesn't say "Yes" to anything, because in his family, to assert preference is kind of a social no-no. (Related: the ever polite, "Whatever you like.") An excited Sure! is fine. A slow, tone pitched up Sure? is not. I asked a y/n question. Demands y/n answer. Please and thank.
@bruja I have this issue with my (wasp raised) gf, where she's from there is no difference between "sure" and "yes" because (i've learned) you're not really supposed to assert your own preferences/desires, but you're supposed to wait for someone to insist on doing what you want before consenting to your preference.
For where I grew up, "sure" and "yes" are almost entirely different sentences, just with the same end action/result, because we expect any response to include asserted preferences.
@bruja sometimes a “sure” can mean several things I’ve learned: indifference, a passive aggressive no or yes lmao
