    Whats the literary term for when someone (typically older) speaks with an ominous or warning tone of voice for an action you are currently doing.


    Example: I am thinking and telling my thoughts to the old person. He/she then says in an ominous tone: "well... I guess I'll think about it..."


    I'm curious because if there is any malicious intent involved, I'd like to fully understand the subject & elude to a rebuttal of some kind


    Typically older people with lots of people experience do this, but this person in particular is not fully aware of what he was doing which is a literary weakness. These people games are annoying but if anyone has feedback plz share!!

    hmm what do you mean?

    like doubtful, impugnable, precautious?

    Or like condescending and patronizing?
