When enough is enough - they like dishing it out but can't take it

I have been observing a situation where one person is constantly teasing another although they say they are just playing (it's in a family context not a bullying context) The second person has told them to stop many times but they just don't. Finally this morning the person told the teaser that they are sick of hearing it as the person has done the same thing hundreds of times over the year, now the teasing person has gone off to sulk about it. If someone asks you to stop teasing them in a particular way, would you respect their wishes?

I am a very sarcastic type person. I never mean it in a bad way. there are people I joke with and there are people I don't. Difference is, I know who not to joke with. You can tell when someone doesn't find something funny, and you should leave that person alone. It's not even fun on the teaser's end, because the person doesn't even goof back with you. I think the teaser in this situation should apologize for being a great big booty head and stop acting like a child.

Exactly. As an example every time this person sees his father he gives him a wet willy or similar and every time his father tells him to get lost or similar as he doesn't want him doing that and he just does not take the hint and this is a person who loves his father. He just doesn't seem to understand that what he considers to be playing is words and actions that those people consider to be annoying.
