    UP TO YOU what does it actually mean

    Now I know we all get this answer off our gf and family but what does it mean

    I take it literally now and just do as I please , you can see sometimes it does their heads in but they still say it knowing that I will make a decision that will suit me.
    You would think they would learn but they dont

    All of her family and friends say it at sometime or other for a host of different meanings.

    Are they taking the piss or are they so laid back that it is up to me.

    I am sure that loads of you have had this answer for loads of different situations

    Can anyone clarify it .is it me because I don't understand the language

    it means it takes too much brain power to think about, so you do the hard work of thinking

    mostly because you are farang and you can do it without pain,

    made I larf, just had this one myself which has left me simmering.

    "Up to you" means, "do what ever you want, so long as you pick the exact option that I really want, which of course I am not going to tell you, but I am going to get really upset if you pick wrong"

    it's the way for peasants to "give it up" in any kind of confrontation

    it really means "fuck you"

    I do believe you've nailed it. Remarkable perspicacity for a change.

    However, in certain contexts it can mean "Rather than haggle with you, I'm going to let you pick the price, and if it's more than I was hoping for, I'll accept it and if you are completely fucking dumb you'll think you did well".

    It means that it would be too much fruitless effort to explain to a clueless farang what to base their decision on.

    I can remember being rip roaring drunk one day and got pissed off at seeing her father lying on my new settee. I called him and his wife a pair of lazy bastards and threw them out of my house.
    They are actually nice people and not lazy at all,they never spoke to me for a year.
    The next day feeling a little out of order I asked my wife what did they say to her about me launching them out of the house.
    Their answer UP TO HIM

    'Up to you' is classic emotional blackmail. If you actually do "up to you" as apparently invited, expect to be further emotionally blackmailed and subjected to various forms of petulance until the cantankerous sulk finally ceases- which in the case of a TG, can be quite a while. Up to you.

    Actually, Chinese and Filipino women are little different in this regard, so probably an Asian thing.

    In my world I always ask the Handbag what she would like to do today or where she would like to go.

    Soon as she say's " Up to you Darlink " that's exactly how things roll.

    Embrace it mate, it's one of life's treasures.

    That's what I'm saying the daft bastard says it all the time then sits there looking all upset whilst I'm doing the opposite of what she wants to do.
    She never learns
