(One of my personal heroes since I was very young has been a certain Canadian political figure. One day in high school, my class was watching a movie about this person. Like most of the times a video is shown in class, everyone is talking and laughing and ignoring the movie. Except for me. This movie is hard to come by, and even I’ve only seen it a few times. The movie, shall we say, does not have a happy ending, so it makes me very emotional. I’m usually pretty quiet and never get upset/angry in class, but this topic is very important to me)

Me: *almost in tears, getting more and more upset* Shut up! Shut up! All of you!

Teacher: *after several minutes of this* …[my name], please calm down. The rest of you, stop provoking [my name] so we can get through the movie.
