Who doesn't accept "NO" for an answer?

Hmmmm....

Pushy sales people who "know" they've got just exactly what you need, even though they don't know you from a hole in the wall.

Stalkers who "know" you belong to them and they are exactly right for you, even though they don't know you from a hole in the wall.

Rapists who "know" you really want it, you're begging for it, even when you're screaming "NO!!!!!" and fighting for your life.

Internet trolls who "know" they are your superior and believe they have a right to intrude in your community and "wake" you up, even though they don't know you from a hole in the wall and have been banned repeatedly.

2 year olds who are just being 2 year olds.

What else do they have in common?

They believe they are superior, but that's usually masking a huge inferiority complex.
Insatiable neediness for something: your money, fear, your attention, a new toy.
They believe rules are made for you, not them.
They believe that eventually you'll see things their way if they just harass you long enough.
The emotional maturity of 2 year olds.

Feel free to join in if there is anything I've missed!

1. My daughter's 3 young (1-2 year old) dogs,

About to let them in for the night, give them treats, and try to keep them in their 'bedroom' (kitchen,) while I hang next door in living room!!!

2. ooooh, toooo cute!!!!!

I'm on cuteness overload, now!

But babies are allowed to not accept "no" for an answer. That's just part of being babies

3. Right but they're not exactly babies

(wish they were), each somewhere between 1 and 2, so kind of like 3 'terrible 2s' all at once! They are sweet, and VERY springy! As in 'Tigger BOUNCES!!!'

7. 'Our beagle,' Allie, not in the picture, is the MOST bouncy of the 3,

really as if her legs were springs.
