We've all been put in the situation where someone is drumming their fingers, clicking a pen, humming a loop or some other irritating thing, where you simply must put a stop to it. You patiently wait, maybe they will stop any moment now - they do not.
What you end up saying is something like:
"Hey could you please stop doing [thing] - it's kind of annoying"
What you are thinking:
"I'm going to snap off those fucking fingers and throw them out the window if you don't shut the fuck up"
Most normal people might reply with "Sure, sorry about that" - BUT - Would society as we know it come to a grinding halt if the reply was ever "No - I'm enjoying clicking this pen but also I'm sorry you are irritated by it's sound".
Has the above ever happened? Did anyone survive?
