Father: Roland, I've been driving all over Hells half acre looking for you! Get your smart little @$$ into this car right now! I have had it up to here with your @$#%&$*! Your Mother and I can't take anymore of this and you'd better get that look off of your face right @*%# or I'll get it off for you! We're sending you out west to to stay with your granddad for awhile. You think you have it hard now, Just you wait...you just wait and see fella!!
Roland: just relax Daddy o, everything is ok. No need to raise the roof.
Father: Roland, I have been driving the family automobile visiting more places than I originally intended and have been unsuccesful in finding you until now. Please get your obnoxiously impudent backside into the vehicle post haste. I have reached the absolute limit of my patience with your tomfoolery. Your mother and I are emotionally, mentally and physically spent with this unbearable situation and you had better remove that expression of arrogance from your face in a very short space of time or I will employ highly uncomfortable tactics in order to remove it for you. We have decided to send you to live with your grandfather for a while. You think your life is troubling and difficult now, your thought will soon be rudely displaced with another, my good chap.
Roland: There is no need for you to feel hostile, my sypathetic and understanding father figure. Everything is working satisfactorily. There is no reason to cause an embarassing disturbance.
