Come On (C’Mon) Man and Lady, Please
A signature health tip that has been appreciated by many is “come on (c’mon) man”, a phrase that is very well known to sports fans. During the past several months, I have heard a couple of “come on man” comments that should sound familiar.
- I’m gonna keep smoking ‘cause I got to die of something, come on man
- I don’t have time to be a health advocate for my parents, come on man.
- I thought the doctor said I was cured of prostate cancer so I did not get a follow up, come on man.
- I heard about a religious lady who was told by her physician that she had diabetes and said to others she was not gonna claim that and I thought to myself, lady please.
