Re: I can't take the sassiness anymore!
That's what we use here too, a sudden lack of comprehension on my part. "I'm sorry, I can't understand you when you talk like that." If she's asking me (demanding!) for something, "I want milk!", then she needs to ask nice before she gets the milk, "Can I have milk please?" In that case I hold the cards and she has to play by my rules before she gets what she wants (milk).
