From the beginning, before Isabel’s parents saw her, she desperately hoped her parents would “be too busy arguing to glance up here” because “Mum [would] be asking Dad where he put the car park ticket and he [would] get flustered because he [would have] just dropped it into a bin by mistake”. When her first hope is crushed as her dad notices her right after readers are left to wonder about the clumsiness of her father and Isabel’s guess about the situation between her parents. This creates anticipation among readers as they are forced to continue the story in order to find out whether Isabel is correct about her father. Being an already established comedic situation through de Botton’s use of other device, readers expect irony, a previously used device as well as a common device used for comedic effect but their expectations are upset when Isabel proves to be right about her parents, specifically the actions of her father. Once the anticipation has built up at the end, readers are provided comedic relief with the result different from the previously used irony.

And there it is; the thousand pinpricks of a slap on my face.” Here was a turning point in the book, where Antoinette slaps Marie for insisting that Emile is guilty.

She then replies with “I’m going outside with my friends to play,” as if that was all a lie, which it probably was.
