    my other side of coin

    Hello

    Is it OK to say "It's too soon to see my other side of coin"?

    Thank you

    Re: my other side of coin

    No, it isn't. Could you try to express your meaning in other words?

    Re: my other side of coin

    When someone teases you or hurts your feeling or irritate you or the like, you may say to them that don't think that I keep calm like this for ever, I may once get so angry that I make you feel regret for your behavior. In fact, your calmness is one side of the coin and your future angriness and sharp reaction will be another side of the coin.

    Re: my other side of coin

    Could someone come up with a word or phrase for the occasion?

    My suggestion: the worst is yet to come.

    not a teacher

    There are many ways to express this.
    In keeping with your original idea, these are possible.
    "I've been nice to you so far, but if you don't stop you'll see another side of me."
    "… but if you don't stop you'll see my other side."

    Other possibilities.
    "I've been nice to you so far, but if you don't stop I can easily turn nasty."
    "I've been nice to you so far, but that could soon change."
    etc…

    Or more idiomatically: If you don't stop, there'll be no more Mr Nice Guy from me.
