    When on balance the thing you are trying to accomplish isn't actually worth the effort?

    That's a reasonable answer. When else?

    When you're a child and your idea of presistance is "But I need it" repeated every minute.

    There is a point where the results of persistance just sour the whole experience for you; well it did for me anyway.
