Cheryl: Do you want to take Jacob to the movies tonight for his birthday?
Me: How about y’all go without me.
Cheryl: I want you with me.
Me: Honey, I’ve worked 50 hours this week so far, and I still have to work all day tomorrow starting first thing in the morning. Honestly, I should clock in and work some more tonight.
Cheryl: You have until 9:00 to work, movie starts at 9:30.
Me: Just so we are clear, you weren’t actually asking if I wanted to go, you were telling me I’m going?
Cheryl: (Silence, with a sheepish grin)
Me: Seriously, you are telling me I have no choice, correct?
Cheryl: Kinda, yeah.
Me: (Sighing) Ok.
