    Your lovely four-year old son just informed your guests that he feels hungry. He further explains that Mummy has said to Papa, supper will only be served when everyone has left. What do you say to steer yourself out of this mess...?

    5. Umm, I'm getting really tired of all the cars parked in your driveway. The line's so long, I can't get out!

    A "friend" just handed you a puppy during your birthday party. Everyone's oohing and ahhing. You don't want a dog. What do you say?
