I have a weird question. Is this like a rhetorical answer? Is there such a thing? Thanks!

Thanks so much on advance. This is an odd conversation, and I have helped the young lady who is depressed. But I am trying to adequately explain it and I don't know how. I'm trying to educate myself as much as possible, before college. I don't feel like I am anywhere near teady! OK. Here is the scenario. It was a text message.

Girl texts me :"What's a person have to do. Die?"

I answer : What's wrong? Please don't die.

Her Answer: "I already Have."


End text. So my question is, what would you call that answe? I know I probably sound like the village idiot. Thanks for your help smart people!

@Hogwilder,
Sounds more like drama than rhetoric.

@roger,
There are several interpretations that can be conflicting. Just walk a cautious line with this person.

@cicerone imposter,
I am always cautious (wary) around people who say spooky things just for the sake of sounding spooky.

Well Hog, my reaction is, she's so depressed she feels there's no hope. Ambiguous maybe, open as it is to so many other interpretations

Thank you all so much! Very dramatic and troubled young lady. Thanks for your help, on all accounts. She actually went into a 5 day treatment (suicide watch). Hopefully this is the beginning of the road to recovery for her. I feel like I'm on the wrong forum, but thanks for the good answers to my question and great advice regarding this young ladies mental health.

Not at all, it's remarkable how flex our thinkers. Of course if you conduct the right sort of search you can probly find a site specializing in that sort of thing
