Can I Ask You a Question?

Can I ask you a question? is the worst way to ask somebody if you can ask them a question. For starters, you’re already asking a question by asking if you can ask a question, thereby defeating the whole point of asking if you can ask a question. What if they don’t want you to ask a question and you already asked them? You should really be asking if you can ask two questions, and if they give approval, then you can ask your follow-up question, which is your actual question. With me so far? Any questions? No? Good. My point is this: don’t ask if you can ask a question. Just ask your question or ask if you ask two questions, and then ask your question. It’s not that hard.
