Do I really have to have a reason?

Here is the question. If someone asked you a "yes" or "no" question, would it really matter why you answered the way you did? It shouldn't matter because the question can be answered yes or no. The problem is that the person that is asking the question really wants you to answer in the way they want you to answer. Here's the scenario: Someone asked me if I wanted to have lunch with them. I answered no and then they asked why not....what if I had've answered yes, then they would have said, "well ok let's go." When I answered no, could it not have been ok as well?

Do I really have to have a reason and couldn't, "I just didn't want to go" suffice for an answer? I guess not. Now I have to think of 50 million reasons why I don't want to have lunch with a co-worker. Some things require a reason like if your child gets put in time out in daycare and you want to know what happened so that it could be corrected but then there are other things that don't require a reason. From the words of my mother and probably many other mothers out there, "Because I said so, end of discussion."

Lovingly yours,
