Let's say you are fifteen years old. One of your chores is to scoop the cat litter box every day. Your cousin, who is doing her own chores at the same time, tells you that the cat scoop is nasty, and makes gagging noises to indicate just how disgusting she thinks the smelly cat scoop is.
What is the appropriate response?
1) Take the hint and wash the cat scoop in hot soapy water.
2) Toss the cat scoop in the garbage can and ask your mother to buy a new one.
3) Duct tape the nasty scoop to a piece of PVC pipe and chase your cousin around the house with it.
