Sometimes people need to just be silent and listen:

When I kindly ask people to leave.

They stay put.

 

 

When I urge people to go away.

They don't move a foot.

 

 

When I yell at people to leave,

They request more respect from me.

 

 

When I say yelling is the only way to get their attention.

They stubbornly disagree.

 

 

When I apologize for my behaviour and again kindly ask them to leave.

They leave, looking funnily at me.

 

What am I doing wrong?!

 

"Nothing. They left, and that's what you wanted, right?"

Oh, shut up!
