I'm working on "The Dude" (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-dude) for my fiance. I'm ALMOST done with it, but I can't quite tell what the pattern is telling me to do.

I'm doing the shawl collar, I'm at the very end, and this is what the pattern says.....

"Continue working short rows by working 2 fewer stitches each right side row until you have worked to the last 28[28, 28, 30, 30] sts and wrapped your stitches on both RS and WS. After working to the last 28 sts, wrapping and turning on the last WS row, work in 2x2 rib to the end of the row, knitting or purling sts tog with their wraps (in patt), turn and work to the end of the WS in 2x2 rib, knitting or purling sts tog with their wraps (in patt). BO all sts."

The part in italics is what I'm having trouble understanding. Is it telling me to just work the row in pattern, turn, do another row, then bind off? Or am I supposed to be doing decreases where the short-row wraps are?

"You listen to metal and knit?"
"Yea, so?"
"I don't know, just seems a little out of the ordinary"

I would just work in pattern and then bind off. If it doesnt look right you can always take apart the last few rows and try again.

Basically, yes, just knit the row in pattern, turn, and knit another row then bind off.  But when you are knitting those rows and reach a stitch that has been wrapped you need to pick up the wrap and work it with the stitch it was wrapped around. There's a detailed video about making wrap and turn short rows here. There are many other videos as well if that one doesn't suit your learning style.
