Nagability!

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)

  1. To annoy by persistent faultfinding, complaints, or demands.
  2. To keep in a state of troubled awareness or anxiety, as a recurrent pain or problem:  He had certain misgivings that nagged him.
  3. 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!
  4. To cause pain, discomfort, distress, depression, etc. (often followed again by the word at):  This headache as been nagging at me all day!
  5. 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.
  6. 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 2:Check mark in box

 

Definition 3:Check mark in box

Definition 4:  you’ve all heard about my headaches before, so:

Check mark in boxCheck mark in box

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…

Nag, nag, nag!
…but if everyone would do what I ask the way I ask the first time I ask, we’d not have this problem!

And the world would be a better place.
