If a younger sibling calls you names to make you angry you should stay silent to make them angry.
If the referee make a call you think is unfair you should explain calmly.
And if a friend yells at you for calling a play against him you should yell back.
There are a lot of times where I wished I would've stayed silent but instead I talked back and got punished for it, but oh well. I guess that's how I learned my lesson, or at least I'm in the process of it.
