Crack the window... not literally

The other day my 7 year old son was asking me about something and he said that people shouldn't sleep in their vehicles. I told them it would be okay as long as you crack the windows. He thought I really meant to smash the windows out lol. I told him it was an expression and that I just meant to roll them down a little to get fresh air inside. He was worried then that bugs would come in and bite if you cracked the windows. It's funny how kids notice things that we as adults are so used to hearing that we don't question. My dad always said to crack the window when he meant for it to be rolled down a little in a vehicle. I know I would get car sick if the window wasn't cracked a little bit as the air inside would get to stuffy.

you reminded me of someone , who never understand it when you start your talk by saying " for example" so he be like delete this word and take your words as is and start arguing about it , i remind him that this is an example only , he insist to stick with it :)

I think what you mean is that someone you know takes everything so literally. You can tell him what you are saying is just hypothetical but yet he takes it the wrong way and gets all bad. People can be so difficult sometimes. At least my son is only 7 lol. He wasn't being difficult though just didn't understand what I meant and we got a good laugh out of it.
