* An all-kid version: In the ''WesternAnimation/PunkyBrewster'' episode "Growing Pain," Glomer starts to grow uncontrollably after he sneezes from eating pepperoni pizza. The flowers from Margaux's parade float help Glomer to shrink a little, but as he tries to tell Punky this, she's not listening because she's competing against Margaux with her own float.
-->'''Glomer:''' But Punky...Margaux's flowers making me--\\
'''Punky:''' I don't want to hear another word about Margaux's dumb flowers!\\
(''Later, when he finally tells Punky this'')\\
'''Glomer:''' Flowers shrinking me back to normal. Pretty nifty, huh?\\
'''Punky:''' Glomer, why didn't you tell me?\\
'''Glomer:''' Well, I trying to. But you say "I don't want to hear another word about Margaux's dumb flowers"!

The kind of thing [[AdultsAreUseless useless adults]] will say to a KidHero or child who has some rather urgent news. This pint sized [[TheCassandra Cassandra]] will be shooed away from grownup company for being "JustAKid" before even getting [[CassandraTruth one word]] out. This isn't necessarily limited to just children either; a pretentious character can silence a friend or underling in this manner, or a grown woman when the men don't take women seriously. This can also be used as a put down to annoying characters when two more powerful/important characters are discussing something. The kid will get [[ConjunctionInterruption interrupted after the word "but"]].

* Terry Brooks example, ''[[Literature/TheSwordOfShannaraTrilogy The Elfstones of Shannara]]'': although Wil Ohmsford doesn't say the trope name, he does pretty much ignore [[TheWoobie poor little Wisp]], who keeps trying to tell him something--but he's so set on getting the Elfstones back from Mallenroh so he can prove himself Amberle's protector that he doesn't even pay attention to the hysterical shrieking. Cue Eretria finally grabbing his arm and jerking him back, revealing that the box the Elfstones were in was trapped with a deadly viper inside:
