Assunto:  for sure / sure
 
Mensagem:  "For sure" is not standard English.  Yes, you hear it used as slang in some contexts, but not in contexts such as "For sure you can."  A better reply would be "Certainly", "Of course", etc. with or without "...you can."

Congratulations on having good ears.  You heard something that didn't sound right.
