    Re: Correct sentence usage

    Do you have tickets? is a direct question, to establish whether you do or do not. A very simple, straightforward question with no connotations otherwise.

    Don't you have tickets?
    suggests you should. Are you hiding them from me? Do you mean that you weren't invited? I mean, like, everyone has tickets! Don't you?
