Why so many comments about that? I don't know. But last week, I watched a program on the French TV, about Mrs Thatcher's life. At one point in time, she made a speech to the members of the Parliament, that was about what the European Union' requirements toward member countries. She mentioned 3 of them, then she said what she had responded: "No, no and no!"

Maggie Thatcher just passed away & CBC played the infamous clip of her addressing the head of the EU. She actually said "No,no,no".

It's common in some romantic languages, like French, Italian and Portuguese. This kind of thing are spoken for annoying children that asks repeatedly the same thing. This way, you answer repeatedly: "No, no and no.".

Being a happy & optimistic Canadian, I would definitely correct this & say "Pardon. Oui, oui et oui!"

Once you learn the language, you could almost call yourself a "French-Canadian". ;-)

May I offer a slight improvement to your grammar (or lack theroef) "Ain't no one got NO time for that!". The Spanish double negative is infectious.

Haha agreed but I'm referencing a viral video

So, you meant "Ain't nobody got time foh dat"
