Not quite.

I asked the original question, and you thought about it. qatlho'.

The queston arose from my need at the time to translate the demand "Lead, follow or get out of my way!"

I went for "yIDev pagh yItlha' pagh HIwaQ 'e' yImev!" (Lead, follow or stop obstructing me!") because that, for me, was more in line with what the sentence was trying to convey.

But thank you for your efforts. Much appreciated.
