“Shut up!” Sarah yelled at her brother. He was teasing her again, and she hated it. She wanted to just shut a door a keep him out. He stopped teasing her with his words, but then he turned on the TV. It was very loud. She was trying to get some work done and the noise from the TV made it difficult for her to think. “Can you shut it off? I need to get this work done!” “No, I want to watch TV,” he replied. She got up and walked over to the TV. “Don’t shut off the TV!” her brother yelled. “I want to watch that.” “Well then at least record it and watch it later. Right now, I want to shut off the TV and get my work done.” Finally he agreed and shut off the TV. Then he left the room. At last Sarah could work without having to shut out the noise around her.
