- You come in, they continue staring at the tv screen or sometimes even at you, without saying a word. "D, how are you", you ask? He smiles back, answers "fine" if you are lucky, and promptly ignores you, absorbed in whatever it was he was doing before you came in.
- Their uncle comes in, and says hi to the adults but "overlooks" N and Y. He ignores them because he is sick of having to always greet them first, old enough to be their father as he is.
D is a 10 year old son of Nigerian parents, born and bred in the U.k.
N and Y are Austrian, in their early teens.
One thing I cannot stand is bad manners.
