Because I’d expect them to say yes. That’s a trick question and it’s the kind of bullshit you find in places where ego and self-promotion are the rule.
I don’t trick people. I hate being tricked, why would I do that to someone else. I like respect and I find the best way to get respect is to show it. So I let them know the deal up front. No tricks. No questions that have hidden answers. No questions that are just there to “make the puppet dance.”
I want people to know from the start that treating each other well is the primary rule. I don’t get there with questions that can’t give the answers I actually need.
