Lady Capulet says, “Enough of this. I pray thee hold thy peace.” (Act I, Scene III, Line 53) This is insensitive of her because Nurse took care of her daughter and is recounting memories of her development as a person, and Lady Capulet waves this all away in her bore of what makes Juliet truly

This has affected her actions and way of living her life and even pursuing teenage dreams. Since Susie didn 't arrive for dinner Abigail still kept her hope up that nothing unusual had happened and that her daughter was in safe hands. Successively she started becoming worried and made phone calls to neighbors …”as my mother made phone calls..” (p 55) which shows us that she is upset.
