Adult: Quit that kid, you're getting on my nerves!
Kid (putting sticks down): Okay.

(Later)
Adult: If I've told you once, I've told you a million times. Don't play with the sticks!
Kid (putting sticks down): Okay.

Adult: Can you pleaase stop that awful squeaking noise? It's been a hot day and I'm very thirsty and you're really getting on my nerves!
Kid: What?

Kid (waving stick about): Lookit my new toy!
