Usually that is the case. But sometimes I say what because I am shocked at what someone has said and I want them to clarify it.
Thank you for best answer.
What?.......damn.....and all this time I thought my wife was hard of hearing.
You can't turn a statement into a question just by changing the period to a question mark. Grammar doesn't work that way (most of the time).
Thanks a lot for letting us know this!
You are so nice and considerate. Thanks.
Yes ma'am. I have learned the difference between Wilde saying "what" meaning that she didn't hear me or "what" meaning I better rephrase what I said to her.
On the damn MONEY...yes! I want to say change sounds harsh, but the only word I could come up with is 'to rectify'...but isn't that just 'change' repackaged? Wait...WHAT! Haha.
Especially when she says it through gritted teeth
I notice I also narrow my eyes, and do a dead pan stare.
Ugh...I hate that. Now every time I say "what?" when I did not here what he said, he REFUSES to repeat it because he thinks that I am doing this. :-/
Men play that game to and some of us are a whole lot better at it...
