 Example: My wife drives into a service station. I take a plastic bottle partly full to get a new full bottle. She says that she is -b-l-a-n-k-w-a-l-l-e-d. I say for what? She says for buying black olives. I say why don’t you ask them directly why they won’t sell them to you. I am not sure they have any to sell. I wish that I had drunk some of the water I gave them. I think she means stonewalled.
