It would help if you named some of the topics where this happens. I don't think I've ever experienced what you're referring to -
A couple of examples...
I recently noticed that the music streaming service on someone's TV was different and asked when it changed. After being asked what the heck I was talking about, I pointed out all kinds of differences from the old service and in reply was told that it was just a different channel. I tried to explain the difference between a "different channel" and a "different service" and was treated like I was insane for even suggesting there was anything different.
Another time, I was in the backseat of a car. The front passenger insisted we needed to be over one lane in order to remain on the highway. Knowing the roads very well, I said it wasn't necessary and was promptly argued with. The driver changed lanes all the same. As we approached the interchange, I pointed outside showing that our original lane continued the same way we were going. However, she couldn't hear me over her continued insistence of how wrong I was.
