Which part of no are you not getting?
It has parts?
No, but it does have a meaning.
Oh. Give me some clues.
Desist. Stop doing what you are doing. What you are doing is a bad idea. In short; NO!
Ah, I think I do get the gist of it sometimes.
But not very often. Would a bit of bribery help? It seems to work most places in Zimbabwe these days. Some little reward perhaps? Food?
Ah, yes. That sounds like a GREAT idea!
OK, we’ll work on it that way. Oh, and by the way, we are going to a puppy training class tomorrow morning.
Wow, that sounds great. Lots of puppies to play with!
Well, yes and no. There may be some of that but I think a lot of it is learning the meaning of no!
