The WORST response to a "Yes" or "No" question.

The response you give when you don't 100% want to say "Yes" but also don't want to say "No". "Sure" is the answer you use when on the fence about something, but is not an acceptable response to Y/N questions.
Phil: Do you want to go to the movies?

Sarah: Sure

Phil: (pause) Is that a "Yes" or "No"?

Sarah: Sure, I will go to the movies.

Phil: But I asked if you WANTED to go to the movies.

Sarah: And I said sure.

Phil: (leaves)
