    hint means, a slight or indirect indication or suggestion.

    The meaning of I got the hint can be positive or negative. It depends on the context. :wink:

    Example
    Pat: I've been leaving phone messages on your machine all week. Why haven't you returned my messages? Why haven't you called me back?
    Max: Can't you take a hint?!
    Pat: What do you mean?
    Max: I didn't call you back because I don't want to talk to you. I am ignoring you.
    Pat: I got the hint now.

    All the best, :D

    Technically speaking it's no longer a hint once you've spelled it out. Oh well.... :)
