Assunto:  Do you mind...
 
Mensagem:  Hello again I know it's silly and I would have know this beforehand but....when one asks me, for instance, "Do you mind if I smoke?" If I say yes, am I by any chance declining the other's plea? Like: Do you mind if I smoke? Yes, I do (=I don't want you to smoke) Someone told me that it's inverted (Yes, I do=gt; I don't mind you smoking). José Roberto
