Wendy: We need some new dinnerware. Nearly all of our plates and bowls are cracked or chipped.
Jason: All right, you do that.
Wendy: Aren’t you going to help?
Jason: I trust your judgment. Whatever you like, I’ll like, too.
Wendy: But I need your input. For instance, this set has eight place settings: eight dinner plates, eight salad plates, eight soup bowls, and eight mugs. Everything is microwave-safe, too. What do you think of this pattern?
Jason: It’s great. Let’s get that one.
Wendy: Wait! This set is a little more formal and the plates are bigger, about an inch larger in diameter. It has a nice blue pattern, see?
Jason: Yeah, it’s perfect. Let’s buy that one.
Wendy: Oh, but look at these other options on this website. I don’t think I can decide unless I can see them in person. Let’s go.
Jason: Go where?
Wendy: To the store. I don’t want to buy something half-assed. We’ll be using these dishes for many, many years.
Jason: Like I said, I trust your judgment. Buy whatever you want.
Wendy: You’re not coming with me? Come on. What can I do to get you to come with me?
Jason: You want me to go with you shopping on my day off and while the game is on? Dream on!
