This trick has been used by kindergarten teachers as well as bar bouncers. Speak softly, and they have to shut up in order to hear what you're saying. Also, if you need to remove a toddler and/or drunk guy from a situation, it gives you an excuse to say, "Let's go talk over there so we can hear each other."

But this only works if the drunk toddler actually cares what you're saying.

LPT: If you want someone's attention and they seem to be ignoring you, that means that do not want to talk to you and you should leave them alone.
