    "Nag" >> AskOxford: nag<sup>1</sup>

    Someone who nags goes on and on about whatever bothers them, to the point that the other person feels like screaming. Women are more often called "nags" than men.

    Try living with a woman. "Do this, do that, then do the other". Kids are the same "give me this, give me that, why cant I do this".

    Of fourse, if it was 'You Turn into the Nag's', it might refer to a pub (common abbreviation for 'The Nag's Head').

    It's a long time since I turned into the Nag's Head, or any other pub for that matter.

    When it comes to nagging I always think about the what Uma Thurman says in Pulp Fiction. She says "When you little scamps come together you are even worse than a sewing circle"
    And a sewing circle is a group of women who get together to sew and chat
