First I just want to apologize if I word my question incorrectly I have trouble with putting my thoughts into words. To ask my question though, is there a saying or idiom for a situation where someone reacts to something exactly how you knew they would because of past repeated behavior? Eg, I bring up something dishonest they’re doing and they say "stop" and won’t have a conversation on the situation. So, any time I bring anything up, their response would be "stop" and I’ve come to expect nothing other then that response. I sometimes say yeah what’s new because nothing changes but I am looking for a phrase that relates more to doing the same thing at the same time or something like “right on cue” almost.

    Do you mean you keep on asking the same thing even when you know what will happen? The two of you keep replaying the same scene. Jun 20 at 22:13
