My book club is reading The Firm these days, and near the end of chapter 15 there is the saying "Wouldn't you say so?'
"You've got problems, don't you, pal?"
"Wouldn't you say so?" Mitch answered.
"I wouldn't work there if I were you. I mean, I don't know all that you do, and I suspect you know a lot you''re not telling..."
From the context, It would seem a little awkward if it has its literal, usual meaning of asking for agreement. Someone said it means "Why do you say so?" Does it really? I'll appreciate your professional advice.
