Mensagem:  Thanks Dale.

What do you think about this one?
The interviewer should be careful when talking about sensitive issues.
Same words have different meanings in different scenarios.

Tico:  "Which drugs have you used?"
There is  ambiguity in the meaning of the sentence. (legal drugs vs illegal drugs)
Teco: "As a family man, I find it offensive that you could ask such an inappropriate question."
And end the interview right there.
