How Not to Get Your Way


It is difficult to change someone‘s opinion by badgering him. The child who begs his mother to “get off his back” when she implores him for some assistance with the household drudgery, may very well plead interminably for some special privilege when he wants something for himself. How paradoxical that neither is able to perceive that no one likes being nagged.

  • Implore – mohon
  • Drudgery – pekerjaan yg membosankan
  • Plead – mengaku
  • Interminably – henti
  • Privilege – hak istimewa
  • Badger – mendesak
  • opportunity – kesempatan
  • Paradoxical – paradoksal, yg berlawanan asas
  • Perceive – melihat, merasa
  • Nag – mengomel
