What's the best way to get someone to listen to you?

Question

If someone isn’t hearing you because they're wrapped up in a task or they're being stubborn, what's the best sound that will bypass this and get their immediate attention?

Answer

Owen - Well, their name for one. Usually, that's one of the most salient signals that you can give someone. You'd say their name, "Chris" and that pretty much perks you out. I don't know. I suppose you could shout, "Help! Help! Fire!" or something, but names are really...

Chris - That's cruel.
