This picture made me smile and think of my son, who I had to realize takes everything at face value at times.  YOu say, " I will get it for you in a minute, he will tell you ok that was your minute!"  Tell him knock it off your killing me, His face drops and say dont die mommie I love you!  Take some Medicine!  Never a dull moment.  Today we practice sentences to use when conversating instead of just putting words in his head we use common sentences and catch phrases to use when you cant find anything to say!  Today I just told him when you need a break from working so hard at school, tell your teacher, I need a break now, I'm getting tired.  Ok, 5 minutes later he goes Mommie I'm getting tired of you!  No more words please Im full!

We teach kids at school to say they need a break, if they need a break from the person talking to them they are taught to say I need space, basically the same thing as he said but a little nicer tone. Also, these are young adults so it sounds better. And yes some of them take everything literally.

Yup. My kiddo used to do the same thing with the "Just a minute" and without fail he would start the countdown.  Talk about pressure on me to get whatever it was done in that literal minute! Luckily he has learned that just a minute or just a second can mean a short wait but when he is having an off day then he goes right back to that literal meaning.

 If I tell my son to "give me a minute" He wants to look at a clock, discuss how many seconds in a minute, ask when the minute started, talk about how many milliseconds are in a second(I don't know BTW, is it 60 or 100?) ...
