Dramatic Effect

The dramatic effect is used to make a person aware of how another individual feels.  Long ago, when everyone had landlines, the dramatic effect by hanging up was quite popular.  People used it to let another person know they were mad, angry,  make a point, thought they were stupid, insulting and many other choices.  In the “Brady Bunch” Marsha used this technique when Greg’s friend critized their mother saying that all women were bad drivers. She had picked up the phone to make a call when she heard him say this.  She then said, “Are you listening? Well listen to this!” She promptly slammed the phone down. It was definitely noticed. Another thing people do is slam a door.  They like to slam it so hard that everything shakes.  It has the same effect.  When people are mad at each the dramatic effect somehow makes them feel as if they are winning.  In most arguments most people do not win. It’s a great deal of effort to prove a point. They usually end in a draw like the old west.  In the same episode of the “Brady Bunch,” Carol  was hit by a car on the side panel. The other driver, a man, told her they would skip the formalities and just pay their own repairs avoiding any insurance. The next day the man appeared at their home looking to speak to Mike, Carol’s husband.  He wanted to present his side of the accident.  However, once he saw they were living in a nice home his attitude changed. He presented Mike with a hefty bill and when Mike refused he told him he would see them in court.  Of course, once again the dramatic effect came into play. He arrived a few minutes late with a neck brace claiming he couldn’t turn his head. He presented his version and then once Carol presented her version the judge had nothing to go on excect both of their testimonies. Mike was smart. When the court was quiet he dropped his briefcase. Of course, the man turned around which proved he was a faker. Sometimes the dramatic effect just doesn’t work. How many times have you been involed in an argument where the dramatic effect worked or failed? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
