    I think you misheard something. The saying is 'You've got another think coming'. My father said it to me regularly 'If you think I'm paying for that you've got another think coming'. It means 'forget it'.

    MiniCooper: Bin kein NS, aber wäre es in Deinem Beispiel nicht "you've got another THOUGHT coming"?

    Ich kenne es auch nur als "another thinG coming", aber schon in dem von Dir vorgeschlagenen Sinne "schlag Dir das aus dem Kopf".

    @ Poppidirk - thought would be grammatically correct but it's idiomatic. It also sounds much better.

    No-one says "you've got another thought coming" !!!

    The phrase is "You've got another THINK coming". "thing" sometimes used as well but IMO incorrectly

    Die thing/think Variation könnte aus einer artikulatorischen Verschleifung an der Wortgrenze von 'thin[k] coming' hervorgegangen sein, d. h. die Plosion des finalen [thin]K erfolgt nicht, sondern fällt in eins mit der des initialen c[oming] und läßt somit die nasalierte ng-Realisation von [thi]ng übrig. Die Bedeutung kann man sich ja, wie in anderen Fällen auch, zurechtmachen.
    FWIW

    Kann es sein, daß sich das "k" in "think" irgendwann zu "g" verschliffen wurde? Ich habe es nämlich bisher nur mit "g" gehört, was nicht heißen soo, daß ich Euch nicht glaube ;-)

    @Poppidirk: das würde aber erst recht keinen Sinn machen ;-)

    I have never heard "another think coming" except when someone is making fun of a Yiddish accent. It may be a jokey variation that has gained some currency, and lost sight of its origin as a joke.

    Robert, if you read bluejay's link, you'll see it gives datings for the 'think' version reaching as far back as 1937 and 1920s (maybe even 20 years earlier) for 'another guess', which is much closer to think than to thing.
    But who am I to judge?
    #11VerfasserPeter <de>12 Jun. 06, 17:15
    Kommentar
    @ Robert - if you look at the google hits, you'll see that many of them contain both versions, and many report 'another thing coming' as a mishearing of 'another think coming'. And a lot of the hits are for the heavy-metal song Another Thing Coming.

    Definitely "you've got another think coming" - people often say "thing" but it is a mistake, but has crept into common usage. This doesn't mean it's correct!

    Another thinK coming is common in Britain. Another thinG is relatively new.

    "Relatively new"? Absolutely new to me! I have been familiar with the expression "You've got another think coming" for as long as I can remember, but this "thing" thing is new to me today.

    There are discussions on this in the archive as well, or were.

    Apparently 'thing' is indeed a widespread error, though I had never heard it until it came up before in the forum. But as far as I'm concerned it's just wrong, completely illogical, as all the usage links above confirm. The quote at the link in bluejay's first post (17:42:38) that 60% of Merriam-Webster editors voted for 'thing' (!) only strengthens my suspicion that M-W dictionary editors leave a lot to be desired when it comes to usage. (If they learned their grammar by listening to heavy metal, it might explain a few things ... *g*) That link at alt.usage.org is usually pretty reliable, though, as is Paul Brian's site (bluejay's second link at 17:49:00).

    @Ghol: Good to see you around again. (-:

    I second hm (on both points).

    IME it is always in reply to something like "I think . . .", "I was thinking . . ." or "I thought. . ." .

    A typical scenario (IMO) would be a child saying "I thought I could go to the disco and then spend the night with . . . " and a parent replying "Well, you've got another think coming" -- mit dem Unterton "Das kannst du dir abschminken, . . .".

    I think it would only be used in "parental" mode.

    Das Beispiel ist aus "You've got another thing coming" von der britischen Heavy Metal Band Judas Priest.

    Consider the song by Judas Priest which is "you´ve got another thinG coming" from the screaming-for-vengeance-album.
