How an ordinary person asks for something after he's already in the shower: Honey, would you turn on the vent, please?
How an engineer asks: Honey, I know you hate to do this?
Engineer: Would you turn on the vent fan?
Me: OK. [Done]
Engineer: Because I hate the way the mirror gets all steamed up.
Me: Yeah, whatever.
Engineer: It makes it hard to see when I shave.
Me: It's on, OK?
