Nagging the Nagged

nag verb, nagged, nag·ging, noun-verb (used with 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.-verb (used without object)
3. to find fault or complain in an irritating, wearisome, or relentless manner.
4. to cause pain, discomfort, distress, depression, etc.-noun
5. Also, nagger. a person who nags, esp. habitually.
6. an act or instance of nagging.

I hate to admit it but I think I’ve turned into a nag. I swear I’ve never been one, I’m actually a really laid back/low key kind of person. As long as you do what you need to do and I do what I need to do, I don’t really care. I just do not like procrastination or at least the kind that drags on for months, only of course when it effects moi.

It’s a viscous cycle and nobody is happy. The “nag” isn’t happy nagging the person while the nagged one just wants to be left alone. This is quite the puzzle, how would these 2 people fix their differences. One wants the task done and the other wants to do it “tomorrow.”

My suggestion, if you will, is if the nagged one doesn’t like all the pestering maybe he should just get the task done. I mean, it needs to be done eventually so why not just do it and enjoy the praise for a job well done? Seems simple enough to me :dunno:

I don’t think anyone wants to be a nag since it certainly isn’t what most people consider attractive. A nag doesn’t become one all by them self, another person has to help them get there.

So the moral of this story is, I’m only a nag because you procrastinate :tongue:


Ok I’ve narrowed down the pictures, I think. I think I’ve decided on The Tunnel and Paw Prints but then I need a third. Part of me loves Wakefield Lake but then another part of me wants to do something softer and more delicate, warmer. I actually added a picture I’ve never posted on my photoblog before so here are the ones I’m left to choose from as the third entry.

Wakefield Lake Aged Angel (Title TBD)

    Man, your site hates me. The post kept disappearing. I had to refresh about 7 times to read it all.

    You want me to talk to him? I can get him to do it.

    I thought part of being Jewish was a perfectly honed ability to nag and cause guilt trips.

    Maybe if people would do something the first time we ask, we wouldn’t have to nag.

    I totally agree with you – don’t like the nagging then do something about it (get the shit done) – and I won’t have to nag LOL

    Cheri – It’s a tough cycle to break.

    J – I’m thinking of getting Erik a procrastination t-shrit I found. I’m sure he’ll probably put off wearing it.

    TMP – Thanks, I needed a change.

    DutchBitch – I know it, that’s what I think. Yeah I’m trying to figure out why it’s doing that.
