I was told that this past week. It was a work thing, I’ll spare you the details.
I think it means that my ‘power’ rests in my ability to get things done by repeated requests until I get what I want and go away.
I kinda like that.
Or, it could be that I just go away…hmmmm.
Nagability: of course there’s really no such word. The dictionary defines nag as a verb (used with an object)
- To annoy by persistent faultfinding, complaints, or demands.
- To keep in a state of troubled awareness or anxiety, as a recurrent pain or problem: He had certain misgivings that nagged him.
- To find fault or complain in an irritating, wearisome, or relentless manner (often followed by the word at): If they start nagging at each other, I’m going home!
- To cause pain, discomfort, distress, depression, etc. (often followed again by the word at): This headache as been nagging at me all day!
- Used as a noun, it would be nagger: a person who nags, especially habitually – Yes, yes, I know you’re not supposed to use a word to define the same word, but this is straight from the dictionary…my apologies to Mrs. Carson, et. al.
- An act or instance of nagging.
Now, I’m guessing I’ve had definition number 1 down to a fine art since childhood. Yes, I was a whiner!
Definition 4: you’ve all heard about my headaches before, so:
As to 5 and 6, well, I’ll never admit to being a nagger, but I’ll admit to stressing my point now and again. Of course, now that I know I have the talent for nagability…well, just get ready!
But in all honesty, I don’t want to be viewed like this lady or wind UP like this guy for that matter…
