** According to ''Literature/BloodAndFire'', during his regency, on the few occasions Aegon III tried asking his small council things, he was shot down because he was "just a boy" (that, and his first Hand was a selfish jerk trying to take power for himself). Not surprising that the minute he turned sixteen, Aegon marched into the throne room, said "okay, you can all get lost now."


* Bruce to Vicki in ''Film/{{Batman}}'' '89: A ''response'' to this kind of treatment is "You're a real nice girl, and I like you a lot, but right now? Shut up." In this case Bruce was trying to tell Vicki that he was Batman, but Vicki kept talking over and interrupting him.
* Ty and Gemma in Literature/DarkLife find out some important news about the outlaws everyone is trying to find, and take it straight to the Sea Ranger...of course, he doesn't believe them and won't check out their story.

** Downplayed in ''Film/StarTrek'' when Kirk barges onto the bridge to warn them about the Romulans. At first everyone's ignoring him (partially because he's a stowaway, as both Captain Pike and Commander Spock point out), but he finally gets them to shut up long enough to hear him out, and both Spock and Uhura back him up to some degree once they hear what he has to say. Good thing, too.

** In "The Secret" [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome skunk-morphed Cassie sprays Visser 3]] and the Animorphs give him the remedy for the smell in exchange for Yeerks cancelling an operation. Unfortunately for him they tell him it's GRAPE juice, not tomato juice, that gets rid of the smell. This has the added hilarity of turning him a lovely shade of purple.]] One of the Controllers apparently knows of the [[spoiler: actual]] remedy but Visser 3 won't allow him to speak.

Exasperatingly, the shusher may even [[YouDidntAsk scold the shushee]] later for not speaking up! And for even more frustration, have the Very Important Grown-Up Things the grown-ups would much rather do or talk about may be [[HypocriticalHumor completely asinine]].

* ''Film/BadTimesAtTheElRoyale'': While they are searching the secret corridor behind the cabins, Miles is desperately trying to confess something to Father Flynn, who keeps putting him off (for obvious reasons). It turns out that what Miles was trying to tell him would have been really useful information to have when Billy Lee arrives.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' had an amusing bit where Angelica tried to tell her parents that the babies had gone missing, but was rebuffed with this phrase. Then, when the parents finally let her speak, they ''do'' rebuke her for not telling them sooner!

* In the finale episode of ''Series/BlakesSeven'', Slave repeated tries to warn the crew that the ship is about to be attacked, but Orac keeps telling him to shut up. The computer turns on the RedAlert to finally get a word in edgewise, but it's too late.

*** That part is highly exaggerated. With Hitler constantly shifting the attack date, and the forces on the border not even matching what was sent against France in 1940, the reports ''legitimately'' weren't believable, and some, in fact, ''were'' obvious misinformation (a classic being one stating the first priority for Germans would be bombarding car factories in Moscow). As for the "hours before they woke him up", much of the inner circle was in his cabinet at quarter to six in the morning.

* ''Literature/MyTeacherIsAnAlien'': Averted in book 3 - Peter interrupts a meeting of some kind to get [=CrocDoc=] back to his office to help Hoo-Lan. Even though he just barged in with a cry of "Your office, now!", [=CrocDoc=] doesn't brush him off and instantly follows him. Good thing too.


* Particularly annoying in ''Manga/AstroBoy''. Even though everyone knows Astro is built with a LivingLieDetector and a way to distinguish if someone is good or evil Professor Ochanomizu will ignore his cries that someone is up to something evil, and when Astro tries to stop them on his own he will yelled at despite his consistent track record of stopping evil.

* Done by the younger Digidestineds/Chosen Children to their youngest member Cody/Iori in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' with almost alarming frequency. This is particularly weird on the part of TK/Takeru and Kari/Hikari who went through ''the exact same thing'' in the [[Anime/DigimonAdventure previous series]] and are doing in spite of the fact that Cody/Iori is ''older'' than they were in their first adventure. Cody/Iori eventually gets sick of this treatment and screams [[BigShutUp "WOULD YOU ALL BE QUIET?!"]] during a particularly annoying argument.

* In ''Fanfic/AnAprilFoolsErrand'', Demeter claims that she and Persephone agreed for a "Garden-Fresh" theme for the Springtime celebration. Persephone then corrects her and pointed out that she picked the theme herself and expected her to go along with it.
