I am reminded of an argument Alex had with his mom on Family Ties:
II think I've refuted all your arguments. Until you are ready to apologize to me, I am done speaking with you.
Oh! I didn't realize you'd started speaking with me.
What is that supposed to mean?
For the past two days, Alex, you have complained to me, grunted at me, lectured to me, and presented me with ultimatums, but not once not not once have you even come close to talking with me.
